Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 4-6
  • 2 pounds brussels sprouts
  • 3 slices of thick cut bacon cut diced into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Wash brussel sprouts, cut off ends (root) and discard, then cut each sprout in half. Place brussel sprouts in large bowl, drizzle with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper, and toss to evenly coat. Set aside.
  3. 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 heat and add the brussel sprouts to the skillet. Drizzle maple syrup all over brussel spouts and stir in pan to evenly distribute on the sprouts. Cook brussel sprouts in pan for about 5 minutes or until they become a bit caramelized and get a tiny golden brown.
  4. Put pan in the oven and roast the brussel sprouts for about 30 minutes, the add the bacon and hazelnuts to the pan with the brussel sprouts and roast about 10 minutes longer or until sprouts are caramelized and golden. Add salt and pepper to taste.
