Recipe with Brussels sprouts

Roasted B. sprouts w/ bacon

Ingredients: Brussels sprouts, bacon, balsamic vinegar

Preparing: Cut your B. sprouts to desired size (usually halved or quartered) and place in baking dish. Place a cooling rack on top of the baking dish and arrange uncooked bacon slices on the cooling rack (see pic) - as the bacon crisps in the oven, the bacon fat will drip onto the B. sprouts and help them roast. (Important: Be sure the bacon is only hanging over the dish - you don't want bacon fat dripping into the oven). Roast for approximately 30 minutes, or until bacon is crisp. Crumble bacon into B. sprouts, add a few tablespoons of balsamic dressing, stir, and put back in oven for 8-10 minutes, until B. sprouts are browned.

Eating: Great side dish that makes almost anyone love B. sprouts.

Dish history: I've made this dish for years by mixing uncooked bacon pieces in the B. sprouts or cooking the bacon first and then crumbling later, but this Xmas my brother told me about this cooling-rack-method and it really makes the dish easier and tastier. Sweet Lou!
