2 (10-ounce) packages Brussels sprouts
1 package of bacon cut into 3/4 inch cubes
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Wash and then peel off any loose or damaged leaves from the sprouts. Trim the root end and cut each sprout in half.
Cook the bacon in a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat until bacon just begins to crisp, about 4 minutes.
Transfer the bacon with a slotted spoon to a bowl and set aside.
Add the Brussels sprouts to the skillet and season with salt and pepper.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, pour the sprouts and bacon in the oven and roast for about 30 minutes, continue to roast until the sprouts are cooked through and golden, about 10 to 15 minutes more.
