I love the fall. It's my absolute favorite season. I love the cooler temperatures, the deep, rich autumnal colors, and I especially love all the fall flavors that become available in the market.

Brussels Sprouts are some of my favorite vegetables, and when they come back in season during late summer and into fall I'm always looking for new ways, and new recipes, to use them in. This recipe is pretty much a no-brainer in that everything is roasted together on baking sheets, including the bacon.

As a special tip to get out of the kitchen fast, I like to line my baking sheets with foil. When dinner is over, and it's time for clean-up, it's as easy as removing the foil, balling it up, and tossing it away.

Another tip for making sure all the ingredients in this dish cook in same amount of time (so your potatoes aren't still hard while your apples are shriveled and dry), is to cut all the ingredients approximately the same size as all the others. I like to halve the Brussels sprouts and cut the sweet potatoes, apple, red onion and bacon in approximately 1" - 1½" pieces.

Also, keep in mind that as the ingredients roast, they will shrink in volume. You'll start with two large baking sheets full of raw ingredients, and after completion you'll end up with approximately (in volume) one full baking sheet full of tender, delicious roasted vegetables.
