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.
