Recipe Tips:

The biggest step to this recipe is how you cut the bacon. You want to cut the bacon strips in half but lonways. You want the bacon to be long and thin because it shrinks in the oven. So just make sure you keep the bacon strips long and you’ll be good to go!

Bacon Wrapped Maple Brussel Sprouts

I’ve made this recipe with and without soaking the toothpicks. It worked fine both ways! I was worried about they getting burnt to a crisp in the oven haha.

You can sub honey for maple syrup if that’s all you have on hand!

Hope you guys enjoy these bacon wrapped maple brussel sprouts!

1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper

  5. In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup and balsamic
  6. Pour over the brussels
  7. Bake for an additional 20-25 mins
