Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Toss the Brussels sprouts with 2 tablespoons of the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Spread the Brussels sprouts out on the baking sheet and roast, stirring once or twice during the cooking process, until tender and charred in spots, 35 to 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, add the bacon to a medium saute pan and render over medium heat, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, the walnuts, garlic, shallots and a pinch of salt. Cook until the bacon is crispy, being careful not to burn the walnuts. Stir in the vinegar, honey and mustard with a fork. Whisk into the bacon fat until emulsified. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the Brussels sprouts to a large mixing bowl, add the bacon mixture and toss well. Serve.

Notes

Cook's Note: The Brussels sprouts and bacon mixture can be made up to 4 hours ahead and kept at room temperature. Rewarm the Brussels sprouts before serving.

    I'm going to rate this without having made it. Simply put, if you halve the sprouts and then cook them for 35-40 minutes at 450 degrees you will get burnt, dried out, blackened husks. It's absurd! I roast whole sprouts at 400 degrees for twenty minutes and they are perfect.

    I was just looking for something new to serve for Thanksgiving and since I've never eaten brussells before (had always heard they didn't taste good, smelled bad when cooking, ect.) thought I would finally try them. I'm so glad I did, this was absolutely delicious and will be made for the upcoming holidays...definately a fan of brussel sprouts now =)
