Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts

SERVES 20  |  PREP TIME 15 Min  |  COOK TIME 30 Min

20 Brussels sprouts fresh or thawed, trim & cut
10 slices maple bacon, each slice cut in half
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 pinch salt to taste
1 pinch black pepper to taste
dipping sauce of your choice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then set aside.

On a flat work surface, lay out halved bacon slices. Using a pastry brush, generously brush each slice with maple syrup.

Place a Brussels spout in the center a slice of bacon, then lift up the sides of the bacon to wrap it around the sprout. Use a toothpick to secure the two ends to the sprout. Transfer prepared bacon wrapped Brussels sprout to prepared baking sheet. Repeat this step until all sprouts have been wrapped.

Bake bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts for 30-40 minutes or until bacon is crisp and the sprouts are tender.

Let bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts rest for 5 minutes, then transfer to a serving plate. Serve with a dipping sauce of your choice.
