  • Put the Brussels sprouts in a bowl and gently toss with olive oil, salt & pepper. Mix or toss gently so the leaves don't all come off.
  • Place the Brussels sprouts inside side flat down on a sheet pan. Make sure all Brussels sprouts have their own area to be flat down. Any good leaves that fell off you can add on the sheet overtop.
    If adding bacon or pecans, sprinkle those overtop of the Brussels sprouts.
