Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon is a perfect side dish for any Holidays. It can be done in 20 minutes while your turkey is out of the oven and resting.
- 2 cups Brussels sprouts cut in half (about 25)
- 4 slices bacon cut into small cubes
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon dried cranberries
- 1 tablespoon Balsamic reduction
- 1 tablespoon parsley fresh, chopped
Preheat the oven to 400 F;
Add cut up Brussels sprouts flat side down to the baking sheet;
Add cut up bacon, salt, and pepper and lightly mix together;
Roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Mix twice during roasting: once after 5 minutes to distribute the bacon fat and then after 15 minutes to flip Brussels Sprouts on the other side for the remaining time of cooking.
Remove from the oven, place on a serving dish, sprinkle with cranberries, parsley, and drizzle with Balsamic reduction. Serve immediately.
This recipe is for 25 brussels sprouts cut in a half (5 per person); and 4 bacon slices (1 per person).
If you don't have Balsamic Reduction, heat up 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan and cook until reduced by half and sticking to the spoon.
