Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Apples

  • 3 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 pints Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and halved
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 apple, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices, each slice halved crosswise
  • 2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar

 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Arrange bacon in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake until browned, 10 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts in a single layer; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast until they begin to brown, about 15 minutes.

Remove from oven, and toss in apple. Return to oven; roast until Brussels sprouts are browned and tender and apple has softened, 10 to 15 minutes.

Toss vegetables with vinegar, and serve immediately.
