About this Recipe

Chef George Duran loves to marinate his Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar for about an hour before roasting. However, feel free to skip this step if you’re short on time! Balsamic vinegar adds sweetness and acidity to this dish, which complements the smoky flavors from the bacon. Using frozen pearl onions saves you a ton of time because you don’t have to peel them. It’s okay to omit the pearl onions if you don’t have them on hand. If you don’t like bacon, feel free to omit that, too.
