Hearty Brussels sprouts pair nicely with salty bacon and onions in this quick Thanksgiving side dish for two. A sweet balsamic glaze makes a nice complement drizzled over the top, but it's not necessary to enjoy this classic combo. For a twist on this recipe, try swapping pancetta for the bacon. If you want to have leftovers, this recipe is easily doubled.

  • Toss Brussels sprouts with 2 teaspoons oil and salt. Spread on a small baking sheet or roasting pan. Roast, stirring once, until browned and tender, about 12 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.

  • Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add bacon (or pancetta); cook, stirring, until crispy, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate.

Drizzle with balsamic glaze, if desired.
