I have made Brussels Sprouts with bacon before and really liked it. But this time I wanted to roast the Brussels to give them that extra flavour and crispy texture I love. Brussels sprouts and bacon are natural friends and adding the walnuts gives this dish a nice crunchy texture contrast. This would be a happy addition to any Thanksgiving table, plus don’t we all love recipes that only dirty one pan?
Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Walnuts and Balsamic Vinegar(serves 2-4)
Preheat oven to 400F. Trim the Brussels sprouts ends off and cut any large ones in half. Heat a large oven proof skillet to medium. Add bacon and walnuts and saute until bacon is crispy. Remove bacon and walnuts to a dish and add sprouts as well as a few grinds of salt and pepper. Put pan in the oven for 20-30 minutes depending on size of sprouts. Toss half way through. Remove from oven, toss with bacon and walnuts and put back in oven and roast for 10 more minutes. Drizzle with balsamic, toss and serve.
