Done right, Brussels sprouts are divine. And when paired with bacon—oh my! When paired with bacon AND sausage—oh, my, MY! I’ll wager now that there won’t be a meat-eatin’ picky eater who will pass on this dish.

To further dress up this roasted Brussels sprouts dish, we’ve tossed in baby bella mushrooms and lovely broccoli Romanesco—that beautiful, sea urchin-looking, lime green kin of cauliflower. If you can’t find broccoli Romanesco, just substitute with additional Brussels sprouts.

Hold the meat and I am in! I love all the veggies you used. Roasting brussel sprouts for my pizza as I type! And I bought Romanesco at the Farmer's Market today! Yum!
