Bacon Roasted Vegetable Side Dish

After I made the 30 Minute Pork and Vegetable Kebabs last week, I've been on a bacon kick. The kebabs turned out so good with so little effort, that I could not resist making a similar recipe of Bacon Roasted Vegetables. We try not to make a habit of eating bacon too often,  but what if bacon is the answer to eating more vegetables??

It might be my pregnant irrational brain talking me into eating more bacon, but I swear we ate way more than the typical side dish serving of vegetables with this recipe, just because they were so irresistibly good and smoky.

This side dish is super easy to put together. We often make roasted vegetables to go with our dinner anyway, and just taking the extra minute to toss in some chopped bacon gives everything so much more flavor.

  • 2 small bell peppers - (I used red and yellow)
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 (5 oz) container baby bella mushrooms
  • olive oil spray
  • 4 slices bacon - , chopped
  • Optional: salt & pepper - , to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a large baking pan with non-stick spray, such as this olive oil spray.
  • Remove the seeds from the bell peppers and chop the bell peppers into 1-2 inch pieces. Slice the zucchini into ⅓ inch slices. Cut the baby bella mushrooms in half if they are large.
  • Toss all the vegetables and the chopped bacon into the prepared baking pan. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon is fully cooked and crispy and the vegetables are roasted to your liking. Carefully transfer to a large dish lined with a paper towel to absorb the bacon grease.


I did not need salt for this recipe because the bacon gives enough saltiness to the vegetables, but feel free to use a little if you like!

I liked it - did 18min, but bacon was crispy and done, but the zucchini was just a bit hard. It had a lot more liquid at the end that I thought it would but it was tasty. I did add some salt though. Thanks for the recipe

We recently found a no-nitrates bacon (no preservatives!) and as you can imagine, not that's relatively guilt-free (health-wise) we're using it A LOT :):):) So the timing is just perfect!!! Delicious idea sweetie! Sending you lots and lots of hugs! xoxo

I've been buying the no-nitrates / uncured bacon too! There is absolutely no difference in taste and the expiration dates on the packages look comparable, so I wish they would just stop making the stuff with nitrates.
