Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Total Time:
58 min
Prep:
8 min
Cook:
50 min

Yield:
4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 (10-ounce) packages Brussels sprouts
  • 2 ounce piece slab bacon cut into 3/4 inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Wash and then peel off any loose or damaged leaves from the sprouts. Trim the root end and cut each sprout in half.

Cook the bacon and walnuts in a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat until bacon just begins to crisp and walnuts are toasted, about 4 minutes. Transfer the bacon and walnuts with a slotted spoon to a bowl and set aside. Add the Brussels sprouts to the skillet and season with salt and pepper.

Put the pan in the oven and roast the Brussels sprouts for about 30 minutes, add the bacon and walnuts and continue to roast until the sprouts are cooked through and golden, about 10 to 15 minutes more.

HOLY WOW!!!! These were delicious!!!! I do recommend not cooking them quite as long. Since I was just cooking for two, I used one pound of Brussels sprouts and cooked them for about 15 minutes before adding the bacon. Then cooked them for about 15 more minutes and they were perfection! Did I mention perfection???? item not reviewed by moderator and published
In what universe can you bake Brussels sprouts at 375 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes and not burn them? Sorry, it ruined my whole meal they were burned to a crisp! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love the addition of the bacon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this dish for Thanksgiving 3 yrs in a row and people ask me every year to make it no matter whose house we eat dinner. I've also used panchetta instead of bacon and since I'm allergic to walnuts, I use chestnuts instead....absolutely delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Too bad mom didn't have this recipe back in the 70's! I did as one reviewer suggested and added crumbled gorganzola before serving. WOW! This was "ultimate" roasted brussels sprouts. My husband made it known he was having seconds! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I have never been fans of Brussel Sprouts, but we really liked this recipe. Next time, I will use a slice of maple bacon, and top it off with a sprinkle of feta, or blue cheese. I think that would make this AMAZING! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I doubled this recipe and yet this was the one dish that was scraped clean at the dinner table for thanksgiving. I did not have walnuts handy so i used roasted hazelnuts. excellent. item not reviewed by moderator and published
added some shallots to this and it was gone almost as soon as it was served item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is great just the way it is, but we often use half Brussels Sprouts and half Cauliflower. This is the only way I eat Cauliflower - bacon makes it better! item not reviewed by moderator and published
One of my favorite recipes of all time. You can leave out the nuts and they are still wonderful. Try a tiny, tiny drizzle of maple syrup and toss before serving. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We'll never think badly of brussel sprouts again. I made these last year (adding baby carrots as well) ... double or triple the amount of brussel sprouts. They go unexpectedly fast! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Bacon is the key to great Brussel Sprouts. My kids and husband even like it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The bacon is the 'secret' to the flavoring. A good, smoky "country-style" bacon makes this dish extra-flavorful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving, and the whole table was impressed with it. It didn't have the strong intrusive taste that brussels sprouts can sometimes have. The only thing I would change is to not add the chicken broth. It made the brussels sprouts watery and the pancetta soggy. Otherwise, it was great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have always loved Brussel Sprouts. My family likes them as well. We have even grown them in our garden in the past. When deceiding to make this receipe, all I had was frozen Brussel Sprouts at the time, and they worked great. Just slightly thawed them in the microwave first, and sliced in two. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did this dish 2 ways. By the numbers and one with Dijon. Both great, according to Ginger. Only person on earth that really likes this veg. Actually, it worked for me too. If you like BS, do this one. Shawn item not reviewed by moderator and published

We made this for thanksgiving dinner the first time-I know usually we never ever make a new recipie for the first time for a holiday dinner-but this looked easy-not only was it easy-it was excellent!!!! We doubled the recipie and there wasn't a bit left. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It is very good for me to try cooking brussels. I haven't ever tasted it before and I wanted to taste it. I couldn't find good recipe for that. HOwever, it has a lot of fat because of bacon. I wipe fat with paper towel. Overall I like this and easy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sprouts needed to cook longer than recommended---still a little too firm and bitter. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I gave this recipe the highest rating even though I believe the roasting time was a little too long; I'm glad I checked mine ten minutes early. Absolutely delicious recipe.
