Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

I love Brussels sprouts. I can eat them raw or cooked. But, I also know that many people don't like them. I am always looking for new ways to cook them. Here is one that most won't be able to resist. After all, what doesn't taste good with bacon??

2 ounces slab bacon, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
1/2 cup walnut pieces
2 (10 ounce) packages fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 - Preheat oven to 375F
2 - Cook bacon and walnuts in a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat until bacon begins to crisp and walnuts are toasted, about 4 minutes. Transfer bacon and walnuts to a bowl using a slotted spoon; set aside.
3 - Add Brussels sprouts to skillet and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Transfer pan to oven and roast for 30 minutes. Add bacon and walnuts and continue to roast until sprouts are cooked through and golden, about 10 to 15 minutes more.
