Roasted Brussels Sprouts

1 lb brussels sprouts (the smallest, freshest available)
2 slices bacon (I use turkey, but pork or veggie would be fine)
1 t lemon zest
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 T olive oil
salt & pepper

Trim the sprouts and cut them in half. Dice the bacon and fry it until starting to crisp. Toss the sprouts with bacon, lemon zest and juice, oil, and salt & pepper. Roast at 425 F for about 15 minutes or until turning brown and just tender-crisp.

I love brussels sprouts, and the lemon-bacon flavor is mighty tasty.
4 1/2 stars.
