Brussels sprouts are my favorite vegetable, hands down.  I know this isn’t a very popular opinion, but I love them in any way, shape or form.  To make these appeal to more of the masses, I roasted these with some bacon.  I’m convinced bacon makes everything better!  In order to achieve maximum crisp factor, I roasted the Brussels in the oven then finished them off in a skillet with the bacon and bacon fat.  The result is an extremely hearty and flavorful side dish!
