Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Candied Pecans and Cranberries



  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 ½ lbs. of Brussels sprouts, cut in half
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cups pecans
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries
  • Balsamic glaze
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Add the olive oil to a large frying pan or rondeau pot over high heat and cook the Brussels sprouts for 7-8 minutes moving them around occasionally using a spoon until well caramelized.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and bake in the oven at 400°F for 20 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, add some butter to a medium-size saucepan over low heat and stir in the pecans until coated in the melted butter.
  5. Next, stir in the brown sugar and cook for 6-8 minutes or until it caramelizes and coats the pecans.
  6. Transfer them to a parchment-lined sheet tray and spread out.
  7. Once the Brussels sprouts are finished cooking, toss them with the cranberries and candied pecans and drizzle on balsamic glaze, if desired.
