Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
Salty, crispy bacon makes everything better, especially these Brussels sprouts served warm as a holiday side dish. Dovetailing Tip: Cook an additional 1/2 pound of bacon, to use in Green Beans and Bacon on day 5. Remove some bacon grease before adding the brussels sprouts.

3 pounds medium brussels sprouts
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
8 thick slices bacon (about 8 ounces), cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed
freshly ground black pepper
Meanwhile, put the oil and bacon in a very large skillet or stewpot, and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the bacon is crispy. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the Brussels sprouts and cook, stirring occasionally, until they brown and the edges get crisp, about 10 minutes. Stir in the vinegar, salt, pepper, and bacon. Serve warm.
