Roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon and walnuts

See also

Many people get turned off by the words 'Brussels sprouts', but they are missing out on one of the culinary world's secret power foods.

Brussels sprouts have a delicious flavor of their own, an almost sweet aftertaste; not at all like cabbage. This recipe is sure to convert a sprout hater to a sprout lover.


  • 1 bag of Brussels sprouts
  • 1 8oz bag of chopped walnuts
  • 1 lb of bacon (thickness, your preference)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Soy sauce

Cut the Brussels sprouts in half, and give them a rinse. Rough chop raw bacon, and cook bacon in a pan until half way cooked (the bacon will finish in the oven).

Place sprouts, bacon, and 1/2 the bag of walnuts in a baking dish. Drizzle on olive oil, and mix together until everything is evenly coated. Then add salt and pepper to taste.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees, and back 15-20 minutes, depending on level of 'done-ness'. Halfway through, mix ingredients again so that everything is evenly roasted. Sprouts should have a little char on them, and be tender, not crunchy.

Remove from oven, and place in a serving dish. Add a pinch more salt and pepper, and a kiss of soy sauce on top. You don't want the soy sauce to dominate the flavor pool already happening.

Serve and enjoy!

This recipe serves 4-5, and is a great side meal.
