Brussels Sprouts Panzanella With Pecan Dressing

Invite your friends and family over to kick off the holiday season with this delicious dish.

We Coloradans got our fair share of October snow last week, which has ushered us into November and the glow of the holiday season with an even stronger desire to stay warm and cozy. We’re ready to snuggle up by the fireplace, enjoy a mug of hot cocoa, and invite our favorite people to gather around the dinner table for comforting holiday meals.

Spending quality time with friends and family is the reason for the season, but sometimes more hours are spent preparing holiday dishes than enjoying them with our loved ones. This winter, cut down on meal-prep time with a speed-cooking oven—and use it to whip up this recipe for Brussels Sprouts Panzanella with Pecan Dressing, a scrumptious way to kick off the next couple of months’ worth of savoring.
