Prepare the brussels sprouts by cutting off the stem ends and slicing in half lengthwise. Remove any dark, outer leaves. Put them into a 9″ x 13″ baking pan and spread evenly. Add the bacon pieces and cashews to the pan, then shake to combine and evenly spread the ingredients. Squeeze lemon juice over top and season with freshly cracked black pepper.
Cover with foil and place into an oven preheated to 375ºF. Cook for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove from oven, and take off the foil. Stir the ingredients and cook for another 10 minutes, until the sprouts are tender and bacon crispy.
Remove from oven and serve warm. Enjoy!
