Creamy Pecan Brussels Sprouts


These cooler days definitely call for comfort foods, and what better way to say comfort food than a little heavy cream? 😉 I love that when I add it to anything, the dish immediately becomes that much more decadent. This dish is so savory and delicious, I couldn’t stop sneaking bites while it was cooking and after before serving it to my family!

We have used this as a warm side salad, and even topped a pizza with it along with some sliced up sausages and cheese. I happen to think it would make an excellent side to your holiday dinners as well! Who’s excited about Thanksgiving?!


If you’re into eating seasonally, which you totally should be, this dish is perfect for this time of year, with brussels sprouts in season during the fall.


Creamy Pecan Brussels Sprouts


  • 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 2 cups brussels sprouts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 pint heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped


  1. Heat up butter or oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Slice a small onion thinly and throw pieces into the pan, cooking slowly until they become golden.
  3. While the onions are cooking, chop the ends off of the brussels sprouts and discard.
  4. Slice the brussels sprouts thinly. Throw them into the pan along with some salt and pepper and cook down for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Pour in heavy cream and stir to combine.
  6. Once the cream starts to bubble, turn off the heat and add pecans right before serving.
