Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta

Oven roasted Brussels spouts, cooked with some delicious chunks of pancetta and seasoned to perfection….who needs more in life?  So delicious and these are super simple.

Would you believe that until recently, I had never attempted to make them on my own?  I was intimidated by the process of prepping the sprouts and lacked ambition to find the perfect recipe (turns out there are a ton of great ones out there!).  So, I did 2 things…I bought already prepared Brussels sprouts and made my own recipe.  I was inspired by this one over on A Family Feast.  And it just so happens….these veggies are a cinch to make.

One thing I will mention: If you live a low-carb lifestyle, it’s important to monitor your intake of Brussels sprouts.  One serving is typically only about 4 sprouts and comes with 8-10g carbs.  So don’t go crazy and measure your portions.  But you can definitely still enjoy these in all their glory.  Especially this recipe!

Give it a try!
