The Brussels Sprout. I’ve shared about them in this space before. I love them. I really love them. They are hearty, finger friendly and can be whipped up in a flash. I’ve noticed that more people are starting to welcome this little sprout into their kitchen and I’m glad about it. They are something special. While thinking of a way to change up my normal roasted sprout, I got in the kitchen with some jowl bacon, onions, balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. What a time to be alive! There is something about roasting a sprout with bacon, onions and balsamic vinegar. Sweet and savory at it’s finest.
Grab the recipe below for my Bacon, Balsamic + Brown Sugar Brussels Sprouts. They are just good!
