Preheat oven to 400° F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Rinse brussels sprouts and pat them dry. Trim the base of each sprout, and cut each sprout in half lengthwise. Lay on parchment-lined baking sheet and drizzle olive oil on top, followed by a good sprinkle of kosher salt and a few cranks of fresh cracked pepper. Use hands or two spoons to toss everything together. Sprinkle bacon on top and bake in oven for 20 minutes.
Using a small bowl and fork, whisk together the honey and balsamic vinegar until combined. Remove brussels sprouts from oven, drizzle the honey and balsamic mixture over the sprouts, and toss until evenly coated. Return to oven for an additional 20-25 minutes, until brussels sprouts and bacon are crispy. Serve immediately.
