  • Place Brussels sprouts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast for 20 to 30 minutes or until sprouts become brown and tender, turning sprouts every 10 minutes.

  • Transfer Brussels sprouts to a large bowl. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar and sprinkle with bacon. If desired, garnish with lemon peel.

Tips

Tip: To bake pork bacon, place slices side-by-side on a rack in a foil-lined shallow baking pan with sides. Bake for 18 to 21 minutes or until bacon is crisp-cooked. Drain well on paper towels.
