Ina Garten's Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts


  • 1 lb brussels sprouts cut in half
  • 4 slices bacon cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/5 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • In a medium size bowl, toss the brussels sprouts, uncooked bacon, salt, pepper, and olive oil until brussels sprouts are evenly covered with olive oil and salt/pepper.
  • Spread out evenly onto a cookie sheet lined with tin foil 
  • Place in the oven for 30 minutes. After 20 minutes toss to ensure the bottoms aren't being burned.
  • Once finished, remove from the oven. In a small pot, simmer the balsamic vinegar until reduced and slightly syrupy. 
  • Combine syrupy balsamic and brussels with bacon in a small bowl and toss until evenly covered. 
  • Serve, and try not to eat the whole bowl! 


In place of the balsamic vinegar you can use 1 tbsp syrupy balsamic and can skip the simmer step! As our gal says, "Store-bought is fine".
