Lockert Roasted Veggies

 

This is by far the most popular dish I make. There is someone that requests this every week. It has all the veggies our family loves. This idea came from a friend of mine, Jake Lockert.

It has morphed over the years and this is the combination we feel like is the best. You can use any combo of veggies you want.

You will need:

8 Slices of Bacon
3 Sweet Potatoes
2 Beets
1 lb of Broccoli Florets
2 Squash
2 Zucchini
1 Tbsp of Garlic Salt
1 Tbsp Garlic and Sriracha Seasoning
1 tsp of Salt
1½ tsp Pepper
¼ cup of Olive Oil

Begin by pre-heating your oven to 450º.
Cover a sheet pan with aluminum foil and place half of the bacon on the foil so that you cover as much of the pan as possible. Then, put this in the oven for about 7-8 minutes while you cut up the veggies.
