Roasted Bacon Brussels Sprouts

A pretty good approximation of what Salt Hill makes. This method ensures that the bacon drippings get down into the sprouts and not just on the outside. 



~20 medium-sized sprouts
2 strips of bacon
A little grated parmesan
Olive oil
Salt













Preheat oven to 400°. 
Wash/trim sprouts and cut in half. 
Douse with olive oil and salt, not too much, the bacon will add more. 
Arrange on a baking sheet/tray, cut sides up. 
Cut bacon into bacon bits and carefully/fussily place raw bits on top of sprouts. 
Roast for no more than 30 minutes -- maybe check 'em at the 20 or 25 minute mark, ours were a little overcooked at 30. 
Sprinkle a bit of parmesan on top and return to oven just long enough to melt the cheese a bit. 

To reheat leftovers, run under broiler for 5 minutes or so.
