Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans

Would you like to know the easiest way to change up your meals? A change so easy that having another dinner of meatloaf, fried chicken, or pork chops does not seem repetitive? Well, let me tell you, the answer is vegetables! Specifically, oven-roasted vegetables. 


Yes, creative ways to cook your favorite vegetables guarantee a fresh take on tonight's dinner offering. Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans is just the sort of dish that is delicious and easy to throw together, even last minute from a well-stocked pantry. Oven roasting is the perfect way to achieve a "new" and delicious vegetable side dish to serve your family. Even a simple carrot takes on a new flavor dimension when paired with oven roasting. 

I can only begin to tell you how wonderful Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans taste when roasted...Well OK, I can tell you, better than you ever thought possible!


The flavor combination of Brussels sprouts, apples, and pecans is pleasing and can easily be assembled in about 10 minutes. Brussels Sprouts have good keeping qualities and can be found in the marketplace from late fall through winter. Making them the perfect vegetable to grace your table for family meals and even holidays. I encourage you to pick up a stalk of sprouts the next time you see them in your marketplace. It is great fun to pop them off the stem, and a good kitchen task to offer your little helpers when spending time in the kitchen with you. 


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 is largely due to overcooking. Vegetables need only to be cooked until tender, to preserve flavor and nutrition...overcooking is where the strong odor and smell can come from. Brussels sprouts are naturally mild in flavor. So much so, we also enjoy them raw in this wonderful Shaved Brussels Sprouts Apple and Pecan Salad. 

I hope you 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. 

Some thoughts on this recipe:

The Brussels sprouts can be trimmed and cut in half the day before if desired. Store covered in the refrigerator until ready to assemble and roast. 

You may peel or not as desired, any apple you choose. Red apples are particularly pretty in this dish. 

Pecan halves are preferred, if you have chopped pecans, add them in the last 7 minutes or so to avoid over-browning. 

Remember to use a large baking sheet to allow roasting heat to circulate around each piece of food. 


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!

Updated and posted: 11.17.2022

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. Set aside. 

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

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

Spread onto a large rimmed baking sheet pan, you will want a large enough pan so that each piece is not terribly overlapping. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

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

Serve.

Storage options for Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Pecans. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to three days. I do not recommend freezing this dish due to lack of flavor and texture when thawed and reheated.

  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!
