Brussels sprouts have been on our family Thanksgiving table as long as I can remember. This healthy thanksgiving side is made extra delicious with the addition of salty bacon (yes, bacon can be a part of a healthy balanced life!), sweet dried cranberries- and, if you want a little extra crunch, some walnuts, as well.

It’s easy enough to make or prep ahead and pop in the oven when the turkey is resting, as it only takes around 30 minutes in the oven. Warning: your kids might come begging for bacon (maybe speaking from experience, over here!).

I love tossing the sprouts in garlic powder, cumin and a hint of chili powder before roasting, but if you want a sweeter flavor profile, swap the chili powder for cinnamon (cumin-cinnamon is one of my favorite flavor combinations!). Enjoy!
