Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Toasted Pecans is one of my all-time favorite sides for fall. The flavors are everything you love about the season. Sweet and savory… and crunchy too.
1–2 lbs brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
4 strips center cut bacon, chopped
2 large cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup toasted pecans for garnish
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment or foil for easy cleanup.
Prepare the brussels sprouts by removing any yellow or brown outer leaves, cut off the stems and slice in half. In a large bowl, toss the brussels sprouts, bacon, garlic, and olive oil together. Once everything is coated, spread them onto the prepared baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Roast in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and with a spoon stir to oven out the browning. Return to the oven and bake for another 20 to 25 minutes, or until the brussels sprouts are fork tender. Toss with toasted pecans before serving.
