Roasted Garlic Brussels Sprouts

The best garlic brussels sprouts ever, made with garlic and crisp bacon goodness!

Along with the bacon, these babies get roasted to absolute crisp-tender perfection, bubbling up in that bacon fat along with balsamic vinegar, and finally tossed with a little bit of honey for the hint of sweetness. Even the pickiest of eaters will be gobbling this up in no time!

Brussels sprouts are tiny packages full of nutrition, high in fiber, potassium, iron, calcium, Vitamin C, and folate. And coincidentally, these nutrients are all very important during pregnancy. So for all you expecting moms out there, be sure to get your fill on brussels sprouts this Thanksgiving!
