Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Blue Cheese

Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Blue Cheese | www.notenoughcinnamon.com

To me, Brussels sprouts, just like broccoli, belong into a very specific category. The love/hate one. When I was a kid I used to hate these veggies – like badly. Then I grew up and finally realized they were not that disgusting. Actually, they’re even pretty good! That being said, if I really want to enjoy them, they have to be cooked in a very specific way. Don’t even mention steamed-cooked or boiled brussels sprouts or I’ll turn into a fussy kid again. But oven-roasted with balsamic vinegar? Now that’s yummy! Add crispy pancetta and crumbled blue cheese and I’m a happy camper!

Now, does this brussels sprouts + blue cheese combo sounds weird to you? I’m never quite sure where to stop in terms of food weirdness. My brain comes up with uncommon food combination all the time and even if most of them turn out to be quite delicious, I’m trying not to go too far on the blog and scare you guys off! If you ask me, I think this little touch of blue cheese is exactly the kick this recipe needs to go from good to really, really good. But hey, no hard feelings if you decide to leave it out!
