Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts (With Video)

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.

  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!
