I love roasting vegetables and these Brussels sprouts are over the top delicious. The perfect side to any main course.
Start by dicing about 5 slices of bacon and cooking them over medium to high heat. Once they have crisped up, transfer them to a paper towel and drain excess fat.
Clean and trim two small bags of fresh Brussels sprouts and cut them in half. Add them to a baking sheet and sprinkle Kosher salt and black pepper to taste and coat in olive oil. Place them in a 400°F preheated oven and roast them in the center rack for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven, add the bacon, drizzle with store bought balsamic glaze reduction and toss to evenly coat. Return to the oven and roast an additional 5-7 minutes.
Remove from the oven and plate. Finish with a little Kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper and drizzle again with balsamic glaze.
