This dish will make you wonder why you don’t serve Brussels Sprouts more often. The combination of Fisher® Walnut Halves and Pieces with bacon is as close to heaven as you can get in a side dish.
3 slices bacon
1 pound Brussels sprouts
dash freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cupFisher® Chef's Naturals Walnut Halves and Pieces
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Cook bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crispy. Remove bacon to a paper towel lined plate; reserve bacon fat. Crumble bacon; set aside.
Cut off the ends of the brussels sprouts and pull off any outer leaves. Cut sprouts in half lengthwise. Mix them in a bowl with pepper and 2 Tbsp. of the reserved bacon fat. Place sprouts on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes stirring occasionally until nearly tender. Add walnuts to the pan and cook for an additional 5 to 10 minutes or until sprouts are fully cooked. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon and serve immediately.
