10 slices bacon, chopped

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Cook the bacon until crisp in a large skillet. Remove the bacon using a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels. Reserve 1/4 cup drippings in the skillet.

My wife claimed to have hated brussels sprouts for so long. But the minute she ate these--which was a month ago--she's made me make them EIGHT times. She sneaks brussels sprouts into the grocery cart while we're shopping now as a hint for me to make them.
