"Brussels sprouts are simply roasted with pecans and a light olive oil and garlic glaze."

Let me preface by saying I combined this and the Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Apple recipe because I like apples and pecans :). I started the process on the stove with my cast iron skillet to ensure a caramelized brussels sprout and then moved to my oven for 15-20 minutes. Absolutely delicious, no bitter taste either. Note: next time I will toast the pecans on the stove top because they slightly burned in the oven.
I found this recipe when trying to replicate a restaurant dish. It was a disappointment - bland result not worth the effort or ingredients. I think perhaps a generous sprinkling of brown sugar may help tremendously but I'll look first for another recipe.
Bland-- Not worth the trouble
I made these tonight and substituted slivered almonds. Loved this recipe. I haven't had brussels sprouts in 40 years and was pleasantly surprised that I like them!
Although I overcooked it, Ann said it was excellent.
Hubs liked this; I thought it just tasted like cabbage, but I'm not a brussels sprouts fan by any means. I used a lot less pecans and added in bacon and some chicken flavored seasoning. I thought it was still a tad bland, but again, I don't like brussels sprouts so I don't think my opinion should count all that much. The sprouts didn't really carmelize so maybe a hotter temp or a longer time baking and more seasoning? Either way, hubs liked it and he will eat the leftovers so it's not all that bad, just not my taste. Thanks for the recipe!
Threw it out. No real taste and called for way too much pecans. Never browned on the split bottoms because pecan pieces were everywhere.
Made it tonight. Fantastic If you can't improvise stop cooking.. add a little butter and adjust the oil. Add Seasoning to your choice and enjoy.. Very tasty. Great review with my friends.. a keeper. Add a couple tablespoons of bacon bits unless you prefer to take time out to cook bacon, if you're diet is willing.. if not, alittle bacon grease added for extra flavor instead of oil goes a long way and as always adds extra good flavor.
