Serious Eats: Recipes
Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Shallots with Balsamic Vinegar
Note: Look for sprouts about 1 1/2-inches in diameter with tight heads. Chicken, turkey, or duck fat can be used in place of the olive oil. Crisped bacon or fatback can be added to the Brussels sprouts after roasting.
