Brussels sprouts are a subject of debate that divides people every Christmas. But add some extra flavour and texture with this recipe, and you could convert even the fussiest sprout haters.

These sprouts are tossed in a sweet balsamic and maple glaze, and then roasted until tender and caramelised. Finally, they’re tossed with crispy bacon and crunchy pecans for extra flavour and bite.

And these fellas are certainly worth learning to love – They’re rich in many valuable nutrients. They’re an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K and a very good source of folate, manganese, potassium, iron and dietary fiber.

Steps

1
Done

Preheat oven to 180°C.

2
Done

 Place pecans on a prepared baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes (Keep a close eye on them, as they can burn fast). Transfer nuts to cutting board and chop coarsely. Set aside.

3
Done

 Chop off the stems of the Brussels sprouts and cut them in half. Place in a roasting tray and drizzle over the balsamic vinegar and maple syrup. Season well with salt and pepper.

4
Done

Toss so that all the sprouts are evenly coated and either dot butter around the pan, or drizzle over some olive oil. Transfer to the oven and roast until the sprouts are tender and caramelized, about 20-30 minutes.

5
Done

 During the last 5-10 minutes of roasting, place bacon strips in a hot pan or skillet and fry until crispy, about 5 minutes. Remove the bacon from the pan, trim off the fat and cut into small strips.

6
Done

When brussels sprouts are roasted, remove from the oven and toss together with the toasted pecans and crispy bacon.
Serve warm alongside your Christmas turkey or roast dinner.
