  • Combine Brussels sprouts and pears in a bowl with 2 tablespoons olive oil, diced onion, garlic powder, and salt. Spread into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and tender, 25 to 30 minutes, tossing after 15 minutes to brown evenly.

  • While baking, place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels.

  • Drain bacon grease form the skillet and discard; add remaining olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the skillet. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture reduces slightly, 3 to 4 minutes. Pour over roasted mixture and serve.

Cook's Notes:

You can use any firm and slightly green pear variety that you prefer.

You can use fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder, if desired.
