Brussel Sprouts with Brown Sugar and Bacon

The title alone is enough to make you hungry, right?

I went to a new restaurant in the area, The St. James, in Suburban Square. They had an amazing brussel sprout dish that I had to recreate at home. I tried to make this a little less indulgent by cutting some of the fat- while still keeping the bacon.

1 container brussel sprouts, halved
3 strips bacon, chopped
3 T brown sugar
2 T balsamic vinegar
2T olive oil
1/2 t garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Pre-heat the oven to 400. In a bowl, toss together all ingredients except the bacon, and let them marinate for at least a half hour. After everything is marinated, toss in the chopped bacon. Spray a tin foil lined baking sheet with olive oil pam. Spread the mixture in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes and then stir/flip everything. Bake for another 15-20 until the brussels and bacon look browned and crispy.
