This is one of the most delicious vegetable combinations in my opinion. “Roasted Butternut Squash and Brussel Sprouts” oh, but it doesn’t end there, this roasted veggies have also bacon and balsamic vinegar. I have made this dish so many times since Thanksgving, it is only fair to finally post the recipe. I just love the rich, almost bitter taste of the Brussel Sprouts, the tender butternut squash, the salty bacon and the sweet taste from the balsamic vinegar. It is a magical combination!
We had this delicious side dish again for our family Christmas dinner and it has quickly become everyone’s favorite.
