Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts

Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts are an addicting side dish! Fresh brussel sprouts are tossed together with chopped bacon, seasonings and a good maple syrup. Baked until golden brown and crispy, each bite is loaded full of flavor! You have to try this dang good way to make brussel sprouts!

When we went out to visit our best friends in Grand Rapids, MI (read more about that trip here!), my bestie Haley whipped up some brussel sprouts that made me do a double-take. They were SO good! I just had to steal this idea from her and she was more than happy to share it with all of us :).

Ingredients Needed

Since this brussel sprouts recipe doesn’t have very many ingredients, you want to make sure you are using quality ingredients. It really is a game-changer! Here is what’s needed:

  • Brussel sprouts – I quarter the larger ones and halve the smaller ones
  • Bacon – The applewood smoked bacon from Trader Joe’s is pretty hard to resist!
  • Maple Syrup – this is really where quality comes in. You can use a standard syrup you would use for pancakes, but I highly recommend snagging a true, pure maple syrup. SO good! You can find it at Target and most grocery stores!
  • Seasoned Salt – this is ALWAYS in my pantry.

The result: a sweet, salty, smoky, crispy brussel sprout. Yum!

Serving Ideas

Man oh man, if you’re able to resist eating these straight off the sheet pan, then you are a true champ! Not only are these sprouts scrumptious, but they can be served for so many different occasions. From a weekday dinner side to the holiday table, they won’t disappoint!

    I think 50 min is too long. Even at 45 min mine burnt for the most part. I’d lower the heat to 375 if doing 50 min. Otherwise at 425 you should be good at 30 min

    I found the same thing Sabrina. Mine were done at about 20 to 25 minutes at 425 degrees. Ended up overcooked even though I took them out at about 30 minutes.
    Will watch them closer next time so they don’t over cook.
