These Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon are… just… I’m having trouble using words. I’m a food blogger. HOW AM I GOING TO DO THIS? I need to try and put this euphoria into sentences that make sense. Here goes.
First, they’re smoky and salty from the bacon. Second, they’re crispy from roasting in a hot skillet in a hot oven. And third, they’re coated in sticky, sweet, pure maple syrup (but not too much) to give it a slight sweetness that balances out the natural bitterness of the sprouts.
Soooooo yummmmyyyyyy and gooooooooood. (best sentence yet- I’m on a roll!)
This is definitely my favorite way I’ve ever made (or eaten) Brussels sprouts, and they are absolutely perfect for Thanksgiving….
