This bacon fat idea is a honest-to-goodness favorite

More than a handful of people think they can't stand Brussels sprouts, likely because of memories of steamed or boiled ones. But this treatment stops now. In the recipe below, Brussels sprouts are roasted to bring out their natural nutty sweetness.
This recipe couldn't be easier to prepare. First, clean the Brussels sprouts and remove any loose leaves, which would burn while they roast. Then slice them to create even more surface area to caramelize. Finally, toss them with bacon fat and roast them for just 20 minutes to make them nice and tender. Toss the finished sprouts with pepper, garlic powder, and thyme, and this quick and easy side is ready to serve.
