Can I Make this Recipe in the Oven?

Yes, if you prefer to make this in your oven, it still will turn out perfectly. I would cook you back first on the stovetop or in the oven. Then place the brussel sprouts on a foil lined baking sheet.

Season with salt and pepper and cook for about 15 minutes to 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 375 degrees. Then add the bacon to the baking sheet and place back in the oven to cook together.

How to Store Leftovers:

Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
