Roasted Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar, bacon and garlic. Seriously the best brussels sprouts recipe ever!
A Delicious Recipe for Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar & Bacon
Who is in need an amazing vegetable side dish? Well, I have many to choose from including my southern soul fool collard greens, corn pudding, and even my green bean, bacon, and potatoes. Now I’m back with another winner! We’re going to make roasted Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar, bacon and lots of delicious fresh garlic!
Roasted Brussels sprouts are super simple to make, and they’re a true crowd pleaser. I swear, every time that I make these roasted Brussels sprouts, people always ask for seconds and the recipe!
The best things about this recipe (other than the taste) is that I only use a few ingredients. Also, I don’t go crazy with the balsamic vinegar, but I load this dish with garlic & bacon. If you’re not as crazy as I am about garlic, you can use less!
The ingredients that you need:
- Brussels sprouts: If using fresh, remove the outer leaves. Frozen can be used as well.
- olive oil
- balsamic vinegar: needed to make that amazing balsamic glaze.
- kosher salt
If you’re not a huge fan of Brussels sprouts, you can replace them with:
- OR mix some of these vegetables in along with the Brussels sprouts. The flavors will be amazing!
You can roast this dish in cast iron skillet or line a sheet pan with foil and place the ingredients on top in a single layer. Either way works!
Want to add a little more flavor? Once done, you can finish this dish off by sprinkling some feta or parmesan cheese on top!
