Cast Iron Bacon Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts are such a great camping vegetable. They are durable, hearty, and can take a good variance in temperatures while cooking, thus making it a wonderful ingredient to use over a camp fire bbq. I started by cooking some bacon in the cast iron to flavor my brussels. Then added the sprouts and coated them in the bacon grease. Let those cook for about 15-20 minutes. Also, I let the brussels sit and get a little charring on some of their outer leaves. Once the brussels were cooked, I added a little dijonĀ vinaigretteĀ over the top to add some acid. This dish could probably be a meal in itself!


Start by cooking bacon pieces in cast iron pan until crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Add in chopped brussel sprouts and toss with bacon and bacon drippings. Cook over the bbq for about 20 minutes, stirring and rotating around the mixture every 5 minutes or so.

Once cooked, remove from heat and dress lightly with vinaigrette.
