Bacon Pecan Brussel Sprouts

5 from 10 reviews


  • 1/2 lb brussel sprouts
  • 6 oz bacon, diced up
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut off the end of the brussel sprouts then cut each one in half.
  3. Throw your diced bacon in a large skillet under medium heat and cook until it begins to brown.
  4. Then add your pecans to roast with the bacon in the bacon fat.
  5. Once bacon is fully cooked, remove bacon and pecans with a slotted spoon and put in a bowl.
  6. Now add brussel sprouts directly to your bacon fat pan, add some salt and pepper, and cover to let cook for a bit. About 6 minutes of so.
  7. Once the brussel sprouts are browned a bit on the outside, either add that pan directly to the oven or transfer the sprouts to a baking dish then put in the oven for roasting.
  8. Leave in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, adding the bacon and pecans back to the brussel sprouts after about 15 minutes to finish cooking all together.
  9. Let cool a bit, then eat.
