Roasted Balsamic Brussel Sprouts with Organic Bacon

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

3 cups brussel sprouts cut in half, outer leaves removed
1.5 tablespoons of grape oil
1.5 tbsp aged balsamic vinegar
2-3 pieces of bacon (I used Applegate Organic)

Preheat oven with empty oven proof dish in it at highest possible temperature. I used my Breville Smart Convection Oven which I am completely obsessed with. In case you are interested, this is what it looks like.

It's highest temperature is 450.  If not, obviously a regular oven totally fine.

In the meantime, in a large bowl, toss brussel sprouts w oil.

Once oven preheated, carefully remove dish, add your brussels. Reduce temperature to 425. Roast about 1/2 hour. I usually remove some smaller ones earlier so they don't burn.

Cook bacon till crisp. Drain on paper towels. Cut into small buts, set aside.

Once brussels are well roasted, toss with balsamic (if you removed any brussels, add them back). Roast another 2 minutes. Add bacon.

Serve and enjoy.
