Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Onion
Roasted sprouts are satisfying on their own; savory bacon and sweet onion only make them better.
Why This Recipe Works
Bacon, onion, and Brussels sprouts are a great combination. But getting the cooking process down so they all cooked well together took some doing. We jump-started the bacon and onion on a baking sheet on the lowest rack of a 475-degree oven. When the bacon fat had rendered and the onion had begun to soften, we added halved Brussels sprouts to the sheet, cut side down, pressing on the sprouts to ensure contact with the hot sheet. This gave us well-cooked bacon and onion and deep golden-brown sprouts.
