- 15-10 Brussels sprouts
- olive oil
- a few slices bacon or pancetta (optional) cut in pieces
- Grenoble nuts, pecans, walnuts or pine nuts (optional)
- salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
Trim stems and cut the brussels sprouts in half, lengthwise. In a bowl or on a plate, drizzle the brussels sprouts with oil and season, mixing well to coat.
Place the brussels sprouts cut-side down on the baking sheet or in a roasting pan.
Bake 15 minutes, turning mid-way through. If desired, add the bacon or pieces of pancetta. Return the brussels sprouts to the oven and continue cooking for 5 to 10 minutes.
If desired, add nuts for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
