We all know brussel sprouts are one of those dishes that people seem to either love or hate. However, this recipe might persuade some skeptics that brussel sprouts are worthy of a second chance. The pancetta, available now at most good grocery stores, is an Italian version of bacon that is made of pork belly meat that has been salt cured and spiced with black pepper. You can also use regular streaky bacon here if you are not a fan of the Italian variety. This is the perfect side dish - as unique as it is delectable and easy to make!
