Bacon & Orange Sprouts

December, 2019

Say good-bye to smelly and boring brussels sprouts. Roasting them brings out such a nice flavour and when paired with bacon and orange this dish will be a star of the meal! If you are vegetarian or vegan you can swap the bacon for chestnuts. 

Note: If you are preparing this to take to a gathering, keep the dressing in the jar and dress once ready to serve
