Bring on the bacon! Brussels sprouts with bacon become a crowd favorite when smothered in balsamic and topped with homemade bacon bits.
- 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved or quartered
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, divided
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 slices bacon
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest (Optional)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a 15×10-inch baking pan with foil.
Place Brussels sprouts into the prepared pan. Drizzle 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar and olive oil on top. Season with salt and pepper; toss to coat.
Roast in the preheated oven, stirring every 5 minutes, until Brussels sprouts are crisp-tender and brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
While Brussels sprouts roast, place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Crumble when cool enough to handle.
Drizzle roasted Brussels sprouts with remaining 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with crumbled bacon and lemon zest.
