Ingredients

  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 2 slices thick bacon or 4 slices of thin diced*
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • good quality thick balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut brown ends off sprouts and peel outer discolored leaves.
  • Slice them in half from bottom to top and place in a cast iron skillet along with the diced bacon and salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  • Roast for 40 to 45 minutes, shaking pan or stirring with spoon at least once while roasting for even browning.
  • Drizzle with a good quality, thick balsamic vinegar.

Notes

*This recipe works if using pork bacon.
I used 2 thick cut slices and it was perfect. If using thin sliced bacon, use 4 slices.
If using a lean bacon, I suggest adding 2 tablespoons of olive oil and toss with other ingredients.
