Keto Pan-Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Bacon

Time for another Keto side dish recipe. This one features pan-roasted Brussels sprouts that of course includes bacon cause why not?

Since being on the keto diet I must say I’ve gotten really adventurous and have broadened my horizons when it comes to vegetables.

I think that’s especially so because for the first couple weeks being on this diet I had callaloo (Jamaican greens in the spinach family) maybe every other day and finally got tired of it.

I had to branch out and find other vegetables to load up on so I wasn’t relying too heavily on my favourite keto bread for my side.

This delicious keto side dish is full of caramelized flavor punctuated by tasty bits of bacon and crispy goodness. Pair this dish with pork chops, pot roast or roasted chicken for a wonderful, healthy, low-carb meal.

  • 4 bacon slices thick-cut
  • lbs fresh Brussels sprouts trimmed and cut in half
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Cook bacon in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, turning once to ensure it is cooked evenly on both sides. Cover pan with a splatter guard while cooking, if desired. 
  • Remove skillet from heat and place cooked bacon on a wire rack set over paper towels to drain. Once cool, blot bacon with paper towels to remove excess fat before crumbling. 
  • After skillet has cooled slightly, carefully drain the excess bacon fat into an empty can or other heat-safe container. If any fat drips down the side of the skillet, be sure to wipe it off with a damp dish cloth before putting it back on the burner. 
  • In a large bowl, combine Brussels sprouts and olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste. 
  • Heat skillet over medium-high heat and add Brussels sprouts and cook for several minutes until they begin to turn brown. Add the crumbled bacon to the skillet and place in the pre-heated oven. Roast for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through, until the sprouts turn a rich, caramelized color. 
  • Remove skillet from oven and serve immediately.
