  1. Can I use cranberries instead?

  2. I don’t care much for Brussel sprouts, but eating them this way I looks great!

  3. My children would never eat brussel sprouts until I started roasting them. They now fight over who gets the last one in the dish.

    • Roasting them does make such a difference in the flavor, doesn’t it! I hope you enjoy this dish if you give it a try – it’s delicious! Thanks, Margaret!

  4. Brussels sprouts are my FAVE, and now that you’ve added pomegranate and bacon??? SOLD!

  5. i made this for lunch for the week and will be finishing off my last bits today. It was so good! normally i’d attribute that to the bacon but the pomegranate seeds were especially delicious in this.

  6. Could you use pomegranate molasses instead of balsamic vinegar?

  7. This roasted brussels sprouts with pomegranate and bacon looks really yummy! Will try it definitely! I found your post from Pinterest! I’m also gonna pin this post on my Pinterest board my followers will love it. Thanks for sharing!

    • I’m glad you found it and are giving it a try, Jill! It is definitely a special, delicious dish and a great way to enjoy brussels sprouts! Thanks so much for pinning and sharing! Enjoy! xo

  8. If I make this ahead of time (and will have to double the recipe for our Thanksgiving feast), won’t the bacon get soggy when stored in the fridge? When I reheat it in the oven, will it crisp back up again? Or is it really best to make this dish just before serving it? Thanks for your advice!

    • I love this dish made right before serving, but you can also make it ahead of time, if you need to. If you do need to make them ahead, I would roast the brussels sprouts with olive oil and then store the cooked brussels sprouts tightly wrapped in an oven-safe dish. About 30 minutes before serving, reheat them at 350º F until they are warmed throughout. Meanwhile, brown diced bacon and when the brussels sprouts have reheated give them a quick toss and stir in bacon and pomegranate seeds.
