Sometimes it just plain hard to eat right, you just crave a burger. Well instead of over-indulging, think about how you can add a treat to healthier foods. This way you stay satisfied, but don’t regret anything later. Brussels Sprouts with Bacon are a great combination for this. Try the recipe below.

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Balsamic

· 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
· 4 ounces thick Canadian bacon, cut into ½ inch pieces
· 1/3 cup olive oil 
· 1 tablespoon syrupy balsamic vinegar 
· 1 teaspoon Kosher salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 

Line a pan with foil. Combine the Brussels sprouts and bacon on the pan. Drizzle on the olive oil, and salt and pepper. Toss all ingredients together with your hands. Spread the mixture back out across the pan. 

Cook the Brussels sprouts for 20 to 30 minutes. They should be browned and tender and the bacon should be crisped. Remove from the oven and drizzle the balsamic vinegar on top.
