Honey-Sriracha Brussels Sprouts

The Moonshine BBQ (Lynnwood, WA) has Sriracha-Honey Brussels Sprouts on their Happy Hour menu. They're a nice balance of sweet and spicy. I was inspired to do something similar, although...I added a couple strips of bacon tossed into the mix, but you could leave that out and they'd still be sweet & spicy!

4 C very thinly sliced Brussels sprouts
2 T olive oil
s & p
1/3 C honey
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp Sriracha (more or less...I'm kind of a wuss when it comes to hot spices)
Optional: 2-3 slices of bacon

Preheat oven to 400 F.
If I remember right, The Moonshine just quarters their Brussels sprouts; I like mine thinly sliced. You can buy shaved Brussels sprouts, if not...that's your first step. (I crisped my bacon at the same time.) Toss with olive oil. Spread the Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet; season with salt & pepper.

Roast Brussels sprouts for 20-25 minutes until starting to brown. (It may take longer if they're just quartered.) While they're in the oven...

(Crumble or chop the bacon, if you're adding bacon.)
In a small bowl, combine honey, lemon juice and Sriracha.

When Brussels sprouts are done roasting, toss with bacon, drizzle with honey-Sriracha and toss to coat. Season with additional salt & pepper if needed.
