Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Hazelnut Brown Butter

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Hazelnut Brown Butter

Here’s a way of cooking Brussels sprouts that, in my experience, takes the prize for converting those who are Brussels-sprouts averse into loving fans. Browning butter brings out a mellow nuttiness that complements the flavor of the sprouts, and the hazelnuts add a nice and savory crunch.

1 tablespoon butter
1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
3 tablespoons water

1. Position rack in bottom third of oven; preheat to 450 F.

2. Place butter on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast until the butter is melted, browned and fragrant, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven; toss Brussels sprouts and hazelnuts with the browned butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

3. Return to the oven and roast for 7 minutes. Sprinkle with water; toss and continue roasting until the sprouts are tender and lightly browned, 7 to 9 minutes more.

We get some sprouts that are quite large. They seem milder and we just cut them in half, sauté with onions, and mushrooms and add red or green pesto.
