Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us. Be a hero with this delicious side dish when you gather with friends and family 'round the table to give thanks.

 

 

 

Pancetta is our choice for this dish, but feel free to sub out bacon or prosciutto. The important part is that you leave the fat to get the brussels sprouts started, before adding in the shallots, garlic, previously-cooked pancetta, lemon juice, and salt & pepper. That's when the party really starts!
