Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

With the holiday season around the corner, one meal that The Fiance’s family loves to cook is Prime Rib Roast. A perfect side dish to accompany the roast is this Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon recipe. The sprouts come out of the oven crispy and infused with bacon flavour. It may not be the healthiest dish, but it’s green.

    This is my go-to side to bring for Christmas! Great cooking minds think alike. Sometimes I toss in some dried cranberries too
