Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts

Ok, I know you guys all LOVE your brussels, and I love that because I do too and all the recipes I’ve made are pretty goood, but this one, WOW I DID IT! So much flavor, so balanced and basically taste like candy!! If you make these, make more than expected because they will be gone!!

These make the most perfect Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving or just an every day dinner side!! We’ve got sweet, salty, bacony (is that a thing), bitter! I mean all the things! The maple syrup gives it the best caramelization, the bacon balances out all the sweet and its finished with the perfect bite of the brussels! It really is the quickest side dish and I think you are all going to fall in love!
