Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Onions

This recipe for roasted brussel sprouts is a favorite at Thanksgiving (although I make it year round).  I usually make it the morning of  Thanksgiving, although I’ve made it a day or two in advance many a time.  And you have no idea how delighted I am when, someone who typically shuns this particular vegetable, tastes it and becomes a convert. Why?  Because roasting the brussel sprouts causes caramelization (the browned edges) which add a wonderful sweet element to them.  Add the bacon and roasted onions and it is a flavor sensation (okay – I think it is!).

The keys to success for this dish are simple: 1) Use one rimmed baking sheet to cook the brussel sprouts and another one to cook the bacon and onions.  This is because they cook at different times and it allows you to cook all portions to perfection. 2) Lay the brussel sprouts cut side down on the baking sheet.  This ensures the beautiful caramelization as shown above.
