I love brussels sprouts, these caramelized balsamic bacon brussels sprouts are just the trick. I spent days thinking about which green veggie I would use for New Year’s dinner. Brussels sprouts seemed like the best choice. Though they are becoming more and popular, they still aren’t a common side dish. Of course, I wanted a very special dinner for New Years Day! I wanted something that would make me feel great about 2017. This dish is under 80 calories, SCORE!

I used Trader Joe’s Uncured, Nitrate-Free bacon for this recipe. It is my personal favorite. Nitrates are found in most bacon, deli meats, and more. There is a lot of research that indicates nitrates are not good for our bodies and may contribute to cancer. I generally prefer regular bacon to turkey bacon because only 1 gram of fat is eliminated per 2 slices of turkey bacon with the switch. For me personally, this benefit is not meaningful, especially with the availability of a nitrate-free option. Feel free to use what you wish.
