  • Place Brussels sprouts into the prepared pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; toss to coat.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until Brussels sprouts are crisp-tender and brown, stirring every 5 minutes, 15 to 20 minutes total.

  • While the Brussels sprouts are roasting, place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Crumble when cool enough to handle.

  • Drizzle roasted Brussels sprouts with remaining 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with crumbled bacon and lemon zest.

Good recipe! I had never tried them with Balsamic Vinegar and it is fantastic! And the lemon zest adds lots of flavor! I did not cut them because they were small but will next time. I will make again! Read More

This made for some absolutely wonderful Brussels sprouts!! So delicious when roasted like this! I used some thinly sliced pepper bacon, and left out the lemon zest. It was fantastic, and so easy to make! I will definitely be making these again! Thank you for the recipe! Read More

I used more sprouts than this and just sort of eyeballed the balsamic vinegar These were very good! Sorry the bacon didn't wind up picture-worthy, that was my fault and not the recipe's fault so I didn't include it in the photo! Read More

I am not a big fan of Brussels sprouts, but, these are delicious! I quartered the sprouts so there were be more surface for becoming carmelized. Read More

We both really enjoyed this recipe, and I'm not a sprouts fan. The balsamic was a great addition and the crispy bacon just took it over the top. I also really liked the little bits that had a bit of a char. Very good and a keeper. Read More

We love brussel sprouts and this recipe is not typically how we make them. I think next time I will omit the lemon zest and add a cheese like feta or blue cheese. Read More
