Description

Brussels sprouts with maple syrup, bacon and hazelnuts make the perfect side dish during the holidays or anytime.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Brussels Sprouts
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 3 slices Thick Cut Bacon, Cut Into 1/2 Inch Cubes
  • ¼ cups Chopped Hazelnuts
  • ¼ cups Pure Maple Syrup
  • Sea Salt, to taste
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Wash Brussels sprouts, cut off ends (root) and discard the ends. Then cut each sprout in half. Place Brussels sprouts in a large bowl, drizzle with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper, and toss to evenly coat. Set aside.

Cook the bacon and hazelnuts in a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat until the bacon starts to become crisp and hazelnuts become slightly toasted, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer the bacon and hazelnuts to a medium bowl and set aside.

Keep the skillet on the heat and add the Brussels sprouts to the skillet. Drizzle maple syrup all over the Brussels spouts and stir in the pan to evenly distribute the syrup over the sprouts. Cook Brussels sprouts in the pan for about 5 minutes or until they become a bit caramelized and get a tiny bit golden brown.

Put the skillet in the preheated oven and roast the Brussels sprouts for about 30 minutes, then add the bacon and hazelnuts to the pan and roast for another 10 minutes or until sprouts are caramelized and golden. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Served as a Thanksgiving side dish and it was a huge hit! I had requests to serve it again at Christmas, which I did, and three people asked for the recipe. A wonderful combo of flavors!

Delicious! Crunch! Sweetness! Converted some of our Thanksgiving guests to become Brussels sprouts lovers! I couldn’t find shelled hazelnuts, and of course didn’t have a nutcracker, so the sight of me using a hammer on the hazelnuts, I’m sure was very funny! So worth the effort!
