Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Apple

Here's another Brussels sprouts recipe for all you Brussels sprouts fans out there!  And for those of you who aren't converts yet (including me!), this is a nice way to start learning to appreciate this cute little vegetable.  The bacon and apple give your tongue some other flavors to think about instead of having to focus on the strong flavor of the sprouts. 

I'd love to try this out on my nephew to see if it will pass his taste bud test!

3 slices bacon, cut into 1/2" pieces
4 pts. Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and halved (less if you're not a fan!)
Coarse sea salt and ground pepper
1 apple, cored and cut into 1/4" slices, each slice halved crosswise
2 t. red-wine vinegar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Arrange bacon pieces in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet.  Bake until browned, about 10 minutes. 

Add Brussels sprouts in a single layer, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast until they begin to brown, about 15 minutes.

Remove from oven; toss in apple.  Return to oven; roast until Brussels Sprouts are browned and tender and apple has softened, 10-15 minutes.

Toss vegetables with vinegar, and serve immediately.

Serves 8
