Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 ounces sliced pancetta or Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. Place Brussels sprouts in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan; toss with 2 tablespoons oil, salt and pepper. Roast 30-35 minutes or until lightly charred and tender, stirring halfway.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add pancetta; cook and stir 4-6 minutes or until crisp. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar.
In a large bowl, combine Brussels sprouts, cranberries and pancetta mixture; toss to combine. Sprinkle with pine nuts. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
