How to make bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts

  • Prepare the baking sheet: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and set aside. Trim the stem ends off the Brussels sprouts and put into a medium bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Wrap bacon around Brussel sprouts: Cut the bacon in half and wrap each Brussels sprout with bacon and secure with a toothpick. Lay them onto the baking sheet.
  • Making the glaze: In a small bowl whisk together the maple syrup and brown sugar. Brush on top of the Brussels sprouts.
  • Bake bacon wrapped Brussel sprouts: Bake for 30 minutes tossing them half way through until the bacon is crisp and Brussels sprouts are tender. Remove immediately from the baking sheet and place them on a serving dish.

Tips for making bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts

  • How to pick Brussel sprouts: when purchasing Brussel spouts, look for tightly packed ones. Look for bright green and avoid any yellow leaves. The smaller Brussels sprouts are known to have a sweeter flavoring and cook thoroughly better.
  • How do you prep Brussels sprouts: first cut off the rough edges of the Brussels sprouts and remove any rough edges or damaged leaves. Wash your Brussels sprouts throughly.
  • Do you cut the Brussels sprouts in half: for this recipe there is no need to cut the Brussels sprouts in a half. It is best to bake them whole.
  • Add a toothpick: I find it easier wrapping the bacon over the Brussels sprouts then using a toothpick to hold it together while baking.

    I love the idea that I can use this recipe for many more wrappable foods such as shrimp.
    I’m looking forward to making these and others during the Christmas Holidays.

  2. These look amazing! I notice that you picture shows serving these appetizers with a dip. Any suggestions on the best dip for this appetizer?

    1. Yes, these taste best served out of the oven but you can make them ahead of time. Once they are cooked, let cool then store in the refrigerator for 24 hours in an airtight container. When ready to heat up use the oven at 350*F to warm them until they are hot and ready to serve.
