Maple Brussel Sprouts with Hazelnuts

Makes 2-3 servings

Ingredients

  • About 10-12 Brussels sprouts
  • 3 tbsp of chopped hazelnuts or walnuts
  • 3 tbsp of maple syrup
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder

Directions

  1. Preheat to 400°F.
  2. In a bowl, toss nuts with 3 tablespoons of maple syrup, about 1/2 teaspoon of salt and some black pepper. Set aside
  3. Slice off very bottom dirty portion of stem and remove any damaged outer leaves. Cut in half. Place in bowl and toss with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Place cut side up on a well greased baking sheet. Bake covered for about 5-7 minutes or until they start to just soften.
  4. Leave oven on, but remove partially cooked sprouts and toss in bowl with maple and nut mixture. Spread maple coated sprouts and nuts across baking sheet again and continue to bake uncovered until crispy brown (about 5-7 minutes). You can broil a couple minutes if they aren’t browning enough on bake, but keep an eye on them to make sure the nuts don’t burn.
