This recipe hits all the flavor points and makes a fantastic Thanksgiving or Christmas side. Plus, you've got to love a dish that requires minimal effort and doesn't take up oven space. Omit the bacon if you need a vegetarian option. —Lauren Knoelke, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh Brussels sprouts, sliced
  • 2 large apples (Fuji or Braeburn), chopped
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled, divided
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup chopped hazelnuts or pecans, toasted

Directions

Combine Brussels sprouts, apples, cranberries and 1/4 cup bacon. In a small bowl, whisk vinegar, syrup, oil, salt and pepper; pour over Brussels sprouts mixture, tossing to coat. Transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker. Cook, covered, on low, stirring once, until sprouts reach desired tenderness, 2-4 hours. To serve, sprinkle with hazelnuts and remaining bacon. Yield: 10 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • To shave Brussels sprouts, trim off the ends and put them in your food processor or slice with a mandoline. Or trim, halve and slice using a very sharp knife.
  • Agave or honey works well in place of maple syrup.
  • We recommend Fuji or Braeburn apples because they have a crisp texture that will hold up to the heat.
