So here they are babes, the epitome of sweet and savory snacks, the sure to be favorite of your table of hors’ doeuvres and the one veggie appetizer that will make any meat eater salivate like no other… And all you need is 30 minutes and 3 ingredients.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Brussels sprouts are low in calories but high in many nutrients, especially fiber, vitamin K and vitamin C. Brussels sprouts contain kaempferol, an antioxidant that may reduce cancer growth, decrease inflammation and promote heart health. Brussels sprouts are also high in fiber, which can promote regularity, support digestive health and reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Maple Bacon Wrapped Brussel Sprouts

  • Prep Time:10 Minutes
  • Cook Time:30 Minutes
  • Servings: 20 pieces

Ingredients

20 brussel sprouts

7 bacon strips, cut into thirds

Pure maple syrup

Salt & pepper, to taste

Avocado oil spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prep brussel sprouts cut trimming the ends off (still leave most of the end intact). Spray with avocado oil & sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Cut bacon strips into thirds. Lay out each smaller bacon strip. Take a brussel sprout and place it on one end of the strip. Then begin rolling until the entire brussel is covered. (It helps to stretch the bacon as you go so the bacon will be tighter around the brussel.) Place bacon wrapped brussel on a prepared cookie sheet lined with parchment.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes. When done, brush some maple syrup over the bacon and put back in the oven for 5 more minutes. Take them out of the oven and brush with more syrup just before serving. (You can also serve them with syrup too instead of brushing them with it.)
