Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts


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.

3 - 6 large thick cut strips of bacon, cut into halves or thirds as needed to fit around the brussels

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with tin foil.
  2. Prep brussels sprouts by washing and patting dry with a paper towel.
  3. Place a brussels sprouts at the top of a piece of bacon. Roll the bacon around the brussels sprout and secure with a toothpick. Arrange all on the baking tray and sprinkle generously with black pepper (to taste).
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until bacon reaches desired crispiness level.
