Ingredients for Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts – If the brussels are large, cut them in half, if they are small, they can be left whole. This recipe works best with fresh Brussels sprouts because frozen can release a lot of water.

Bacon – Use regular strips of bacon (not thick) and cut them into thirds. Thicker-cut bacon will take longer to crisp, which overcooks the brussels sprouts.

Glaze – Maple syrup makes this recipe super easy, but the Brussels sprouts can be sprinkled with brown sugar (as we do for bacon-wrapped mini smokies). Feel free to mix in your favorite ingredients, including balsamic vinegar, sriracha, cayenne, or honey.
