Supper Club: Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta

We finally got back to our Supper Club this month for the first time since our baby arrived. The theme was Bobby Flay recipes. I chose one that turned out really well, but it didn't make a whole lot. Everything in this recipe cooks down, so it feels like you start out with enough, but it shrinks a lot. The crispy pancetta and the tang of the lemon juice at the end really make this dish special. I'd definitely make this again!

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Heat oil over medium heat in a roasting pan or large skillet. Add the pancetta and cook until golden brown and crisp. Remove the pancetta to a plate lined with paper towels. Add the shallots to the pan and cook until soft. Add the Brussels sprouts and potatoes and toss to combine.

Transfer to a platter and top with the reserved pancetta.
