JEM Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts with Walnuts

It's mid-October in Vermont and farm shares are brimming with Brussel sprouts!

Our friends over at Let's Pretend Catering have achieved Brussel sprout perfection with this recipe that includes bacon, walnuts, and of course, JEM Maple Syrup.


No longer a simple side dish, let your brussel sprouts take center stage tonight!


Yield: 4 servings


4 cups of brussels sprouts, ends trimmed

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

pinch of salt

pinch of black pepper

4 strips of thick cut bacon

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup JEM Reserve Select Maple Syrup

1 cup toasted walnut halves


Preheat oven to 375°F

Place brussels sprouts on a sheet pan in a single layer and toss with oil, salt, and pepper

Lay strips of bacon over the tops of the brussels sprouts and roast for 15-20 minutes or until sprouts are tender and bacon is crisp

Remove from oven and set aside. Once bacon is cool enough to handle, roughly chop it.

In a small sauce pan, bring the butter and maple syrup to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer until liquid is reduced by half.

Pour maple mixture over the roasted sprouts, add in the walnut halves, and stir to evenly distribute. Roast all together for another 6-8 minutes. Adjust seasonings and serve.
