Ingredients

Bacon

  • 4 slices bacon diced

Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons warm bacon fat
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt plus more to taste after the brussels sprouts have roasted
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Brussels Sprouts

  • 1 pound brussels sprouts
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese

Instructions

Bacon

  • Lay bacon in a single layer on a cold skillet.
  • Turn heat to medium and cook the diced bacon until crispy.
  • Set aside, but reserve 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat.

Dressing

  • Whisk together ingredients until well combined.

Brussels Sprouts

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Slice them in half.
  • Dump them onto a rimmed baking sheet and then toss them with the dressing.
  • Roast for 20-30 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, stirring every 5 minutes or so.
  • Be sure to really move any sauce around that may have drizzled off the brussels sprouts or else the sugar in the maple syrup will burn.
  • Remove from the oven and toss with bacon, parmesan, and goat cheese.
  • Serve immediately.
