Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans

Would you like to know the easiest way to change up your meals? So that having another meatloaf or pork chop dish does not seem repetitive? Well, let me tell you, the answer is vegetables! Yes, vegetables! 

Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans is just the sort of dish that is super easy to throw together. Oven roasting is the perfect way to achieve a "new" vegetable dish to serve your family. Even the simple carrot takes on a new dimension when paired with oven roasting...

The flavor combination of these three ingredients is pleasing and can easily be assembled from a well-stocked pantry. Brussels Sprouts have good keeping qualities and can be found in the marketplace from late fall through winter. 

Easy to assemble, then just bake! How to make Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans

Brussels Sprouts have gotten a bad reputation in previous years from their strong flavor and if I am honest, their distinct smell! But I assure you this was largely due to overcooking. Vegetables only need to be cooked until tender, to preserve flavor and nutrition... 

Give Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans a try. This is one delicious vegetable side dish that will pair nicely with many of your family's favorites that show up regularly on the table. Plus, everyone can always use another delicious vegetable recipe...

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • brussels sprouts
  • apples
  • pecans
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
You will also need the following:
  • large jelly roll pan
  • small knife
  • large mixing bowl
Now we are ready to begin!

by the seat of my pants!
400-degree oven 

1 pound Brussels Sprouts
2 medium-sized apples, peeled if desired
1/2 c whole pecans
2 T oil
salt and pepper to taste

Prepare Brussels Sprouts by peeling off outer leaves, trimming stem end, and cutting in half. 

Peel apples if desired, cut into quarters, remove the core, then cut into large chunks.

Place sprouts, apple chunks, and pecans in a large bowl toss with the oil.

Spread onto a large rimmed pan, you will want a large enough pan so that each piece is not touching one another. Season with salt and pepper. 

Bake 12 minutes, toss to turn over for browning on all sides, continue baking additional 10 to 12 minutes, or until done to your liking. Serve.

  2. sounds so super yummy thanks for sharing I never thought about roasting these all together thanks for sharing come see us at

  3. I love Brussels sprouts, especially raw in a slaw. - Margy

    1. I have yet to make a slaw, but we have a bag of fresh sprouts in the fridge...

  4. Sounds good. I was always one of those people who didn't like brussel sprouts but by reputation rather than actually giving them a proper go. Once I did them one Christmas without overcooking them I realised they are actually pretty tasty!

    1. I agree, as a kid I loved them because of their name my mom gave them, baby cabbages. Now I love them because they are delicious, when over cooked!
