Roasted Brussels sprouts with Spiced Walnuts, Blue Cheese and Bacon
I love roasting Brussels sprouts. They really can stand alone with simple salt, pepper and olive oil. But every now and then it’s fun to dress them up. I had some blue cheese, walnuts and bacon and decided to make them special.

The sweet but spicy walnuts with the bacon and blue cheese compliment the tender brussels.

Ingredients:
2 strips of bacon
Brussels Sprouts (I am using enough for two)
1 tbs of Red Wine Vinegar
Peanut oil
Blue cheese
Green onion

Spiced Walnuts

Handful of Walnuts
Molasses
Cumin
Slap Ya Mama season
Curry Powder
Cardamom
Fresh Thyme
Peanut oil

Directions:
1. Mix your walnuts in a small bowl with the oil and spices and put them in a 325 degree oven for about 15 mins. Remove and cool.

2. In a skillet on medium low heat cook your bacon until crispy. Save some of the bacon grease and deglaze your pan with the red wine vinegar. Turn up the heat to medium and add your quartered Brussels sprouts and cook until tender. You may have to add more vinegar or a shot of water. When ready to serve mix the walnuts, blue cheese and top with crispy bacon on a few green onions.
