Calories 228 kcal


  • 1 1/2 lb Brussels sprouts cut in half through the core
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup pecan coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup walnut coarsely chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1 shallot finely chopped
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • bacon bits optional
  • capers optional
  • parmesan shredded, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Clean and trim Brussels sprouts.

  3. Finely chop 1 shallot.

  4. In a medium-sized bowl add Brussels sprouts, olive oil, salt, pepper and shallot. Mix together.

  5. Pour onto a baking sheet and spread evenly.

  6. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Then rotate and flip the sprouts and bake for another 10-15 minutes. * Rotating and flipping helps them brown evenly so they are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

  7. Take out the pan and put the brussels sprouts into a medium-sized bowl.

  8. In your Brussels sprouts bowl, add the aged balsamic vinegar and chopped nuts. Mix.

  9. Check for seasoning and serve!
