Featuring Fine Sea Salt


1½ pounds Brussels Sprouts, halved (or quartered for faster cook time)

2 strips thick-cut, un-cooked bacon, diced


For bourbon-maple marinade:

Morton® Fine Sea Salt, to taste

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

¼ tsp paprika

¼ cup Bourbon

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

3 Tbsp rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar

¼ cup olive oil



Preheat oven to 375ºF.


Cut Brussels sprouts and un-cooked bacon. Set aside.


In a large glass bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients.


Add Brussels sprouts to the bowl, toss to coat and marinate 15 minutes. Stir in the bacon.


Spread Brussels on a large foil-covered, greased baking sheet. Season with more pepper and Morton® Fine Sea Salt.


Roast on the low oven rack until tender on the inside (about 30-35 minutes), crispy on the outside, stirring occasionally.

Pssst: Some Tips

  • Avoid crowding Brussels sprouts on the pan (that will steam them).
  • Try liquid smoke as a sub for Bourbon.
  • Quarter Brussels for faster roast time.
