I’m one of those people who loves Brussels sprouts. Just plain with a bit of salt, and I’m good! I don’t need mine dressed up, but I’ll make an exception for these.

I’ve been holding onto this recipe for a while now. Something about posting a recipe like this at the beginning of August seemed a little odd.

Even now it still seems a bit early, but that’s ok. The Brussels sprouts in the store looked so good that I couldn’t pass them up!

File this recipe away for later. This would make a wonderful easy Thanksgiving side dish or even a good easy Christmas side dish. As a food blogger I start thinking about these types of recipes earlier than your average sane person, so forgive me. 😛

I don’t have a whole lot of side dishes on S&L, and that will soon change. I plan on sharing a whole schwack of fall/winter side dishes in the coming few months, so stay tuned.

These Brussels sprouts with pecans and maple syrup really hit the spot. This recipe is not complicated, and it doesn’t have a huge number of ingredients – perfect for a side dish. I don’t like sides to be too time-consuming or difficult because multi-tasking is hard, and I always worry about burning the main dish if I have too many things on the go.

Lightly browning the Brussels sprouts gives this dish a lot of flavor. And that maple syrup nicely glazes everything. So good.

If you just want the nuts on their own, try my roasted maple pecans. Soo good.

    Okay… I have always known that maple and pecan are a great duo. But I just recently learned how nutritious brussels sprouts are and have been searching the internet on how to flavor them up for consumption. Well… since pecans are my favorite, it only makes sense to give this a go. Thank you for sharing.
