These are such an easy and tasty side dish! I was first exposed to these at a get together late last year made by my lovely friend Devon. Super tender and creamy in the middle and perfectly seasoned with a little pepper and the flavor infused by the bacon these are addictive and easy to pop as an appetizer or a side dish.
Brussels sprouts have become a favorite around our house as a side dish - we only recently discovered them and there's just something about the combination of brussels sprouts with bacon - they seem to belong together!
I use large thick cut strips of bacon cut into thirds and just use enough bacon to wrap completely around each brussels sprouts without too much overlap. For us that is a good ratio of bacon to vegetable.
