Ingredients and Variations
BRUSSELS SPROUTS: If your Brussels are large, cut them in half, if they’re smaller they can be left whole. For best results, try to get them uniform in size. Create a medley of glazed veggies by using brussels sprouts, thick chunks of zucchini, or potatoes (adjust cooking time as needed).
GLAZE: Maple syrup makes this recipe super easy. But they can be sprinkled with brown sugar (like we do for bacon wrapped mini smokies). Feel free to mix in your faves including balsamic vinegar, sriracha, cayenne pepper, or honey.

Clean brussels sprouts & cut them in half vertically if they are large. Cut slices of bacon.
Wrap bacon around brussels sprouts.
Brush with maple syrup & bake. (As per recipe below).
These can be served warm or room temperature. They pair great with aioli for dipping.
Place bacon-wrapped brussels sprouts with the seam side down so they don’t come apart during baking.
Make sure the Brussels are all uniform in size so they cook at the same rate.
Any type of glaze can be used in this recipe, ensure it’s not too salty as the bacon as a lot of salt.
These can be oven baked or cooked in the air fryer (see recipe notes).
Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat in the air fryer, microwave or stovectop.

Optional additions to the maple syrup include cayenne pepper or sriracha. These can be prepared up to 48 hours in advance and refrigerated. Bake just before serving. Ensure Brussels sprouts are about the same size so they cook at the same rate. Additional vegetables or water chestnuts can also be wrapped in bacon and added to the pan. (Cook time may need to be adjusted to ensure other vegetables do not overcook). To cook in the air fryer preheat to 400°F and cook Brussels 10-13 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Smaller Brussels may cook quicker, check them early to ensure they don’t overcook.
