Dear Project Foodie Users,

Sadly and with a heavy heart, I have decided to shut down Project Foodie on December 28th, 2015.

The past 9 years have been a wonderful journey — I met many amazing people, learned an incredible amount and had a great time helping food lovers (including myself) keep track of recipes.

I hope that you too have enjoyed Project Foodie and the fruits of my labor, and that of the various people who helped me over the years with Project Foodie.

For those of you who would like the details of recipes in your recipe box please reach out to me ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it )

Recipe from Simply Fresh by Jeff Morgan (Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2011)

We admit that bacon makes Brussels sprouts taste better. But these Brussels sprouts have their own sweet, earthy charm, too. When roasted in the oven with bacon, the results are stunning.

Serves 4

  • 3 slices bacon, cut crosswise into
  • 1/4-inch-wide strips
  • 1/2 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, bottoms trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

ImageIn a large ovenproof skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to prevent burning, for 2 to 3 minutes, until it begins to crisp. Decrease the heat to medium, add the onion, and sauté for about 3 minutes, or until translucent. Add the garlic and sauté, stirring occasionally, for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.

Add the olive oil and Brussels sprouts and stir gently to coat the sprouts with the oil. Season with salt and pepper. (Go easy on the salt; the bacon will already have added saltiness. You can adjust the seasoning after the Brussels sprouts have cooked.) Place the pan in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes, or until the sprouts are golden brown and can be easily pierced with a fork.

Transfer to a serving bowl and serve right away.
