I can’t believe the holidays are right around the corner!   Thankfully this year I feel a bit more prepared then last year.  At this time last year I had a 3 month old baby, was running on little to no sleep, and was trying to mail order all of my holiday items.  I hadn’t made any holiday dishes yet because I just couldn’t find the time.  In one word I was a bit of a mess.

Fast forward one year and I now have a handle on life and the holidays.  J is now almost 15 months old and while he is all over the house and keeping us busy, his schedule is a lot more predictable, we get sleep at night, and I’m able to cook or bake while he’s awake.   In fact, he really enjoys when I pick him up and carry him while I cook.  He gets a kick out of watching and he loves being my taste tester.

It's easy to make Parmesan Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Basically I’m back to cooking one or two months ahead of time so I actually made these Parmesan Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts last month but they would be a delicious side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas.  They are pretty easy to make and the recipe can be doubled, tripled, or quadrupled depending on how many people you are serving.

They start out like any Brussels Sprouts recipe by being roasted in the oven with oil, salt, pepper, and garlic.   Then when they are half way cooked I added in some breadcrumbs and Parmesan.  This makes a nice and crispy coating on top of the Brussels Sprouts and adds some flavor.  Then when they are pulled out of the oven they are tossed with bacon and drizzled with balsamic.

Roasted some Brussels Sprouts and toss them with Parmesan and Balsamic for a delicious side dish

These Brussels Sprouts are delicious.  They have a ton of flavor from being roasted and the breadcrumb Parmesan mixture adds not only a bit of crunch but flavor as well.  The bacon adds saltiness and the balsamic adds a sweetness that brings the entire dish together.  Give them a try this holiday season, they are delicious!
