Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon
I always make this vegetable side dish for Thanksgiving. The rich flavor of the bacon and balsamic vinegar mixed with the roasted brussel sprouts is really delicious. This recipe is definitely worth trying…and more than once a year!
1 lb. Brussel Sprouts, Trimmed & Cut in Half
4 oz. Bacon, Diced
¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Tsp. Pepper
Place the brussel sprouts on a baking sheet along with the diced bacon, and drizzle the olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the mixture. Cover with salt and pepper and toss well. Spread mixture out evenly on the baking sheet (in a single layer). Roast the brussel sprouts in a preheated 400 degree oven for approx. 25 minutes, until they are tender and browned. Remove from the oven and season again with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.
