Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts

Last Saturday, I was walking along in the market and came across a bushel of brussel sprouts. I’ve only ever seen brussel sprouts in the grocery store before, taken off the stem and bagged. I had no idea that they grow on a long tree-like stem, right out of the ground. Well, that sounded like a culinary adventure to me!DSCN0500

These are brussel sprouts, still on the vine. I just had to pick one up when I saw how cool they looked!DSCN0502

Close up, they look like mini cabbages! They were so cute!DSCN0504

This recipe was incredibly easy. It only had three ingredients: Bacon, maple syrup, and brussel sprouts!DSCN0505

You roast them all together in the oven, until the bacon is crispy. DSCN0506Here they are, ready to be devoured!

Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts

You will need:

1 large stem of Brussel Sprouts

1/2 pound of bacon, cut into small, bite sized pieces

1/4 cup maple syrup

Pre-heat oven to 375. Clean and remove brussel sprouts from the stem. Add them to a large baking dish. Slice up your bacon and sprinkle on top. Drizzle bacon and sprouts with maple syrup. Bake at 375 for 25-30 mins, stirring once, until bacon is crispy. Serve as a side.
