Halloween is over and fall is marching on, which means Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! Are you hosting dinner? Bringing a dish to share? Either way, Caramelized Brussels Sprouts Sweet Potato Medley is your dish.

I know, the name is a mouthful. I struggled with the name because I wanted you know all the really tasty stuff it has in it. There’s more than brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes. Much more.

Brussels sprouts because if you haven’t noticed, are the jam these days. So trendy, so in vogue, so. . . delicious, because that’s the most important thing. They’re no longer that vegetable people make faces upon hearing the name. I’m pretty sure there was once a conspiracy theory about brussels sprouts.

Sweet potatoes, which have also taken on a new-found popularity the last few years both for taste and health benefits are included in this dish and when you caramelize these simple vegetables, magic happens. The flavors practically explode in your mouth and with just a few other ingredients, Caramelized Brussels Sprouts Sweet Potato Medley is your must-have side dish for the holidays.

The combination of crispy, salty bacon and tender, browned potatoes can’t be beat ~ diners across America swear by it, but this dish also includes sweet potatoes along with russets, Applewood smoked bacon, onions and peppers and a hint of tang from apple cider vinegar for a rustic, hearty dish that’s so simple you could probably make it with your eyes closed, but because we’re using a sharp knife, that could be dangerous so I don’t recommend it.
