    I love roasted vegetables! Especially in the winter months. They are the perfect side dish this time of the year – warm and filling. These roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon is so delicious and easy to make!

    Enter brussels sprouts and garlic. This side dish is full of flavor and nutrition. Add bacon to the mix and you have a match made in heaven. Brussels sprouts are tiny packages full of nutrition, high in anti-oxidants, potassium, calcium, iron, vitamin C, folate and they are an excellent source of dietary fiber.

    You can easily vary the recipe by sprinkling the brussels sprouts with lemon juice, balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar. They also taste delicious with pine nuts, which you can sprinkle on top when serving.

    You can similarly prepare roasted broccoli with bacon.

    I have made something similiar to this and it was great. I will be trying this in the next week or two. However, I don’t use salt, but I will use Mrs. Dash’s Garlic and Herb for seasoning and that will replace the salt and garlic.

    Thank you for a great receipe.
