Roasted Brussels Sprouts

The Domestic Man, a Sharp #NewWaveBlogger roasted brussels sprouts and bacon to the perfect texture that other microwaves could never achieve in the SHARP R-930CS Convection Microwave Oven. See full recipe and details here.

8oz bacon, sliced into strips
1 lb brussels sprouts, thinly sliced length-wise
1 tbsp ghee
salt and pepper to taste


1. Press the “Preheat” button and set it for 375F. As the microwave preheats, slice the bacon and brussels sprouts. One preheated, add the bacon to a small baking sheet and add to the microwave. Press the “Convec” button and set the temperature to 375F; bake until the bacon pieces are crispy and the fat has rendered out, about 20 minutes, turning the bacon after 10 minutes.

2. Remove the baking sheet from the microwave, then remove the cooked bacon with tongs and set it on some paper towels to drain (keep the rendered fat in the baking sheet). Add the ghee to the rendered fat and stir together, then add the brussels sprouts and toss until evenly coated. Return the baking sheet to the microwave, then press the “Roast” button twice (for the bottom heating element) and roast for 10 minutes, then toss the sprouts; press the “Roast” button three times (for both the bottom and top heating elements) and roast until the brussels sprouts are browned and crispy, about 5 more minutes.

3. Remove the baking sheet from the microwave, add the bacon to the sheet, and toss until incorporated. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.

** For best results, set the timer to an estimated cook time, and then press the “Start (+30 Sec)” button to add time if the food looks like it needs more.
