Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts (With Video)

When it comes to creative appetizers, these Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts with maple syrup are sure to steal the show. Get the instant appeal of bacon, the savory greens of the sprout, and a dash of maple syrup all in one easy finger food recipe.

If you're searching for a new finger food to serve at your next party, then look no further than these bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts.

Now, I can probably guess what you're thinking:

Brussels sprouts? Really? That vegetable that so many of us weaved and dodged as a kid, you want us to serve it at a party? A party everyone is trying to have fun?

Yes, that is the vegetable and I am 100% endorsing you to feed it to all your friends. And, better yet, I am certain that it will be the hit of the party.

Because not only is this appetizer easy to whip up, but it will also blow your taste expectations out of the water.

What dipping sauce should you use?

This appetizer works the sweet and savory angle, and because of that, I recommend using a dipping sauce that does the same.

Or, better yet, serve both a sweet and savory dip and let your guests decide!

Try any (or many!) of the following and see which one is gone first.

BBQ sauce (any flavor, but I recommend honey)
Mustard (any flavor, but I recommend honey)
All flavors of ranch (classic, spicy, buttermilk, etc)
Maple syrup
Balsamic reduction
Sweet chili sauce
Sweet and sour sauce


  • Depending on which Brussels sprouts you buy, you may need to cut the stems and remove the leaves. If you’ve never done this before, check out this guide on How to Trim and Cut Brussels Sprouts.
  • As you're cutting the bacon, keep an eye on the fat. If needed, trim away excess fat to keep the width of the bacon to about one inch.

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.

  1. They look delicious, could I halve the sprouts just to make eating a little easier or would they burn before bacon is done? Plan to try tonight with Sunday supper!
