Recipe: Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

Let’s be real here — bacon is delicious. I could pretty much eat it all day, every day. But that wouldn’t be healthy, so I like to add in a vegetable. For fall, I love to eat Brussels sprouts garnished with loads of garlic and bacon. It’s the perfect complement to any savory protein. From turkey to ham to tofurkey, this side dish is the perfect companion to grandma’s main meal.

Cut bacon into 1” wide strips. I used apple-smoked bacon for another burst of flavor.
