Sure, bacon makes everything better. But brussels sprouts and bacon are a particularly great combination. The savory flavors and perfectly crispy texture make it a winning dish every time. It's simple enough for a weeknight dinner, but nice enough to serve at the holidays. And you can always swap the bacon for pancetta if you want to make it a little fancier.
