Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Chestnuts

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Chestnuts

Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 6
Use either fresh or jarred chestnuts to prepare this autumnal dish, which is the perfect accompaniment to roast turkey or pork. Bits of bacon lend a crispy texture and pleasingly salty flavor.


  • 6 oz. bacon, diced
  • 5 shallots, minced
  • 4 lb. brussels sprouts, halved lengthwise
  • 1 cup roughly chopped roasted and peeled
      chestnuts (fresh or jarred)
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Preheat an oven to 425ºF.

In a large roasting pan or ovenproof sauté pan over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp, 5 to 8 minutes. Add the shallots and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the brussels sprouts, chestnuts, thyme, salt and pepper and stir well.

Transfer the pan to the oven and roast for 15 minutes, then stir the ingredients. Continue roasting until the brussels sprouts are tender, about 10 minutes more. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately. Serves 6.
