BALSAMIC-ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

"We all know boiled brussels sprouts are mushy and horrible," says Garten. "But these roasted ones are more like French fries." Cut them the day before, then pop the dish into a 400°F oven while the turkey rests. A balsamicvinegar glaze adds a sweet, acidic edge.

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 2. Place brussels sprouts on a sheet pan, including some of the loose leaves, which get crisp when they're roasted. 3. Cut pancetta into 1/2-inch dice and add to the pan. Add olive oil, 1 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper; toss with your hands. Spread out the mixture in a single layer. 4.
