Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Pecans, and Cranberries Recipes

Ingredients

Scale

12 oz Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed & yellow leaves removed

2 TBS Bacon Flavored Olive Oil

1 TBS Everything Bagel Seasoning

¼ tsp Salt

4 Slices Bacon, cooked and chopped

1 Cup Pecans

½ Cup Dried Cranberries

Instructions

  1. Line the separate baking sheet with foil. If possible, place a rack over the sheet pan to allow the bacon to render the fat.  Add the bacon slices in one layer. Place pan with bacon into a cold oven. Preheat to 400˚F. As the oven heats the bacon will render the fat and become much crispier. Once oven is at temperature set timer for 20 minutes. Once bacon is about 90% done take out of oven and let cool while the sprouts finish roasting.
  2. Brussel sprouts should be trimmed at the stem to just barely remove all the stem and the leaves stay intact. A SHARP knife will make this much easier and safer. (This will reduce the bitterness of the sprouts significantly.) Slice all Brussels sprouts in half.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine halved Brussels sprouts, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, and toss to combine.
  4. Place Brussels sprouts on the baking sheet, cut side down.
  5. Roast in the oven at 400˚F for about 25 minutes. During the last 5-10 minutes of roasting, turn them over for even browning, the cut sides should be partially charred but not blackened.
  6. Drain bacon of fat and slice the bacon into small bites.
  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add pecans in one layer.
  8. Toast the pecans for about 5 minutes (maybe a bit longer) in the preheated oven at 350˚F until they get darker in color.
  9. For best results, briefly soak the dried cranberries in hot water. Bring a small pot of water to boil.
  10. Add dried cranberries to a medium bowl. Pour hot water over the cranberries and soak them for about 10 minutes. Drain.
  11. In a large bowl, combine roasted Brussels sprouts, warm chopped cooked bacon, toasted pecans, and soaked dried cranberries. Toss everything together. The olive oil from Brussels sprouts and fats from bacon should be enough to coat the ingredients. Top with Everything Bagel Seasoning.
  12. Enjoy!
