Tip for Making Bacon Wrapped Brussel Sprouts:

  • Trimming Brussel Sprouts – We recommend trimming the brussel sprouts by cutting off the ends. Also, Remove any yellow or damaged outer leaves then cut sides lengthwise to from tip to bottom.
  • Keep Brussel Sprouts whole – Just trim off the ends but keep the Brussel Sprouts whole to wrap them in bacon.
  • Wash Brussel Sprouts – We recommend washing and drying Brussel Sprouts before wrapping them in bacon.
  • Cut Bacon – Cut bacon in halves or thirds to evenly wrap around the Brussel Sprouts.
  • Wrapping the Brussel Sprouts – When we wrap the brussel sprouts with bacon, we like to wrap it one time around. This allows for the bacon to get completely cook and get crispy.
  • Secure with Toothpick – Secure the bacon with a toothpick inserted both into the bacon and Brussel Sprouts.
  • Baking Sheet – Line the baking sheet with foil for easy clean up and to prevent the bacon from sticking.
  • Brown Sugar – Completely cover the bacon in the brown sugar.
  • Flip the Brussel Sprouts – We recommend flipping the Brussel Sprouts half way through the cooking time. This makes sure that the bacon is cooked and is crispy.

Variations:

  • Brussel Sprouts – Cut the Brussel Sprouts in half and wrap them in bacon if you prefer.
  • Change the Seasoning – Use different types of seasoning. We only used salt and black pepper, but you can season with garlic salt, Italian seasoning or Season Salt.
  • Brown Sugar – If you would like your bundles a little sweeter, mix in some brown sugar. We recommend mixing with the maple syrup in a small bowl. Crispy Bacon wrapped brussel sprouts with maple syrup has amazing flavor.
  • Bacon – You can use different flavors of bacon if you prefer. We used a classic bacon, but you can use a thick cut bacon or a peppered bacon for added flavor.
  • Turkey Bacon – You can use turkey bacon instead of regular bacon if you prefer.
  • Drizzle Sauce – Top the bacon wrapped roasted brussel sprouts with BBQ sauce or honey for a differently flavor.
  • Air Fryer – Instead of making these brussel sprouts in the oven, place them in the air fryer basket. We love using the air fryer and allows the bacon to get extra crispy.
