Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Maple Syrup

May 11, 2016

My brother-in-law makes the best bacon with sugar and garlic, and it inspired me to try brussel sprouts with bacon and maple syrup.  It turned out pretty darn good if I don’t say so myself.  My husband loved it as well.  This is a very easy recipe and can go with just about anything.



  • 1 pound of brussel sprouts cut in half
  • 1 package of bacon
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts (optional)


  1. Cook the bacon either in the oven or stove top and make on the crispy side.
  2. Place cooked bacon on a paper towel to soak up the grease and let it cool down.
  3. Crumble bacon and set aside.
  4. Saute the brussel sprouts in the olive oil over medium heat for approximately 10-15 minutes.
  5. Add the bacon, pine nuts and maple syrup and simmer at a lower heat for about 5 to 10 minutes and serve!
