Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts

  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Rinse and trim your Brussels sprouts; if they are large, cut them in half.
  • Toss the Brussels sprouts in a gallon freezer bag with your bacon fat and balsamic vinegar before spreading them on a large rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt.
  • Roast your sprouts for 20 minutes before stirring and roasting another 10 minutes. If after 30 minutes the sprouts are still not well-browned, roast an additional 5 minutes.
  • While the sprouts are roasting, melt your butter in a small saucepan before adding the minced garlic. Saute the garlic until soft, then set aside where it will stay warm.
  • When the sprouts are done, remove them from the oven and place them in a large bowl. Pour your garlic butter over the Brussels sprouts before adding your shredded Parmesan. Toss well, then serve hot.
