TIPS FOR MAKING BACON WRAPPED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

  • used to smallest to medium Brussels sprouts about the size of this recipe. They have a sweeter flavor and are easier to wrap with bacon, cooking evenly all over. If you can only find larger brussels sprouts, you may need to increase the cooking time, especially if you feel the need to add extra bacon to cover them.
  • Don’t skip using the parchment paper. Or you’ll have to do some scrubbing afterward, as the sticky syrup will be hard to remove.
  • Don’t cut your buds in half but bake them whole.
  • You may find it easier to use one toothpick per sprout to hold the bacon in place while it bakes.
  • Baking time can vary depending on the thickness of the bacon you choose to use. I’ve used thin bacon for this recipe, so if you’re using thick bacon, adjust the cook time accordingly. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.

WHAT TYPE OF BACON IS BEST TO USE?

  • There are different opinions on this, so it really depends on your preference. Thin bacon tends to cook faster and get nice and crispy in less time, while thicker bacon will provide a heartier flavor and roasts beautifully alongside the Brussels sprouts.
  • If you’re not sure, try a batch with thin bacon and then a batch with thick bacon and see which you enjoy the most.

DO I NEED TO PREPARE MY BRUSSELS SPROUTS?

Depending on what you buy, namely Brussels sprouts that are still clumped in a row on their long stems versus loose Brussels sprouts, you may find the preparation slightly different, although the following tips are good to apply anyway:

  • Remove clumps of brussels sprouts from their stems or check loose brussels sprouts for stem debris.
  • Remove discolored or spotted outer leaves from each shoot.
  • Wash the Brussels sprouts well in a liquid salt solution that will remove any remaining dirt.
  • Rinse the Brussels sprouts under running water in a colander.
  • Dry them and then assemble them according to the recipe.
