Ingredients

  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut large Brussels sprouts into lengthwise quarters or cut small sprouts in half. In a large bowl toss together sprouts, 1 tablespoon of the vinegar, and the oil until sprouts are lightly coated. Sprinkle with pepper and salt; toss to coat.
  2. Place Brussels sprouts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast for 20 to 30 minutes or until sprouts become brown and tender, turning sprouts every 10 minutes.
  3. Transfer Brussels sprouts to a large bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar and sprinkle with bacon. If desired, garnish with lemon peel.

Tip
