How to Make ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS AND PEARS -- BONNIE'S

Step-by-Step

  1. Select two large pears for this dish. Note: This is a good vegetarian dish if you omit the bacon.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease the baking pan with olive oil.
  3. DO THIS FIRST
    Remove loose outer leaves and stem ends of the Brussels sprouts and cut them in half lengthwise. Wash and core the unpeeled pears and cut into 1-inch chunks. Peel and slice the onion.
  4. THEN
    In a large bowl, combine the prepared Brussels sprouts, pears, and onion. Drizzle all with the 3 tablespoons of olive oil and gently mix with your hands until thoroughly coated. (Don't add the nuts, dried cranberries, honey, or red wine vinegar until you are ready to serve)
  5. FINALLY
    Spread the sprouts and pear mixture out on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle lightly with kosher salt and coarse ground pepper to taste.
  6. BAKE IT!
    Bake for about 50 minutes or more until brown. Turn as it browns.
  7. Measure cranberries and nuts.. Mix about 1 teaspoon of water to the cranberries.
  8. TOAST YOUR NUTS
    Place a dry skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped walnuts and cook and stir until lightly browned. Cool slightly then add the cranberries and cover the pan. (This will soften the cranberries just right) Set aside.
  9. COOK BACON
    Dice the bacon and cook in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Cool and chop, set aside..
  10. SERVE
    You may serve from a bowl or directly from the pan. Add the cooked bacon, cranberries, and toasted walnuts and gently toss. Now, drizzle 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar and 2 teaspoons of honey over the pan and toss again. Season to your taste by adding more red wine vinegar or honey if you desire. Serve immediately.
