Bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts

I love my veggies but I love meat too and the combination of two is great, for instance, bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts. Roasted Brussels sprouts are delicious, but wrap them in bacon and they become heavenly good as the fat from the bacon seeps into the layers of the sprouts. Pop one of these into your mouth and the sprouts melt away perfectly complemented with the crispy bacon.

This is a no-fail, simplest recipe ever. You need Brussel sprouts, of course! Remove the outer leaves and halve them.

Next is bacon. I used thick cut. Cut each slice of bacon into two.

Now start wrapping one half of Brussels sprout in one half slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Arrange them nicely on a foil wrapped baking tray and sprinkle ground black pepper on them. Put them in a preheated oven at 375° for 30 min.

And Voila!! You have no idea how difficult it was for me to wait to take these pics before I could start devouring them.

This can be made so easily and so quickly for guests at home or bring them to a potluck.


1 lb pack of thick cut bacon

1 lb Brussels sprouts. [I had lined the extra sprouts with a little salt and pepper along with the wrapped ones on my tray and they got soaked in bacon fat too and turned out yummy!]

1 tb ground black pepper.


Preheat oven to 375°.

Cut each Brussels sprouts in halves.

Cut each slice of bacon in half.

Wrap each piece of sprout with bacon and secure ends of bacon with toothpick.

Sprinkle the black pepper on the wrapped sprouts.

Arrange them nicely (without crowding) on a foil wrapped tray.

Put them in the oven for 30 min.

Drain excess fat by lining them on paper towel.

Enjoy hot but be careful!!
