This Appetizer Won’t Break The Bank But It Might Blow Your Hair Back

Instead of serving these as appetizers you could just double or even triple the recipe, and serve these as a scrumptious side dish.

I bet these would pair amazingly with chicken and good ol’ mashed potatoes! But I have to say I have no problem enjoying these on their own, and you could even dip these into your favorite sauce to create the ultimate party food experience! Whether that would be a sour cream sauce, ranch dip or something else, that’s up to you.



1 package pastured / grass-fed / organic bacon {approx. 12 pieces}

24 medium to large Brussels sprouts

Sea salt, optional

1 – 2 tablespoons organic maple syrup, optional



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prep a large baking sheet with edges {like a jellyroll pan, I used a stoneware large bar pan} – line it with unbleached parchment paper. Set aside.

Wash and prep the Brussels sprouts, dry them with a clean dish towel. Cut stems off Brussels sprouts if they are long and woody. Set aside.

Cut a package of bacon strips in half. Roll a half strip of bacon around each Brussels sprout. Insert a toothpick through the bacon half way into the Brussels sprout to secure the bacon. Place on lined baking sheet and repeat until all Brussels sprouts are wrapped with bacon.

Season with optional sea salt.

Bake at 400 degrees F for about 25-35 minutes until bacon is crispy and golden brown. Depending on how thick your bacon is, they could take more or less time to bake. Keep an eye on them around 20 minutes so you don’t burn the bacon.

Remove from oven and lightly drizzle with optional maple syrup. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes.

Serve immediately.




Quick tip: Serve with your favorite dipping sauce!
