Bacon-Wrapped Brussels Sprouts with Maple Dijon Glaze Recipe

When it comes to appetizers, my little boy really said it best when he was just five years old. There is so much wisdom in this statement!

Are there appetizers? Because I like eating before I eat.

I have to agree with young Evan on this one. Appetizers are THE BEST, and I have a new favorite party passer thanks to this delicious bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts with maple Dijon glaze! These were made with Hatfield Maple Brown Sugar Extra Thick Cut Triple Smoked Bacon, and wow, are they ever tasty!

I’ve actually been making bacon-wrapped bites for our annual Christmas gathering for years, but, this is the first time I’ve ever done Brussels sprouts! I’m so happy with the way these bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts came out.

Because we’re all about bacon in my family, I am always sure to choose a flavorful, premium bacon for my holiday appetizers. When you’re wrapping something with bacon, you need a bacon that is nice and thick to do the job.

Hatfield Maple Brown Sugar Extra Thick Cut Triple Smoked Bacon is perfect for creating holiday appetizers thanks to the thickness of each slice and also the incredible flavor!

Truly, this is going to be your new favorite bacon. We’ve been buying this for about a year now.

Of course, you can’t have a bacon wrapped appetizer without a tasty glaze!

This glaze is made from maple syrup, brown sugar and Dijon mustard. It’s a wonderfully sweet glaze with just a touch of tang thanks to the mustard. It pairs really well with the thick cut bacon and tender Brussels sprouts.

Having delicious foods that can be grabbed while moving from room to room is key in my book and these tasty bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts are perfect for that!

These scrumptious bacon-wrapped Brussels sprouts are a tasty holiday appetizer. You can't possibly stop at just one!


  • 10 slices Hatfield Maple Brown Sugar Extra Thick Cut Bacon
  • 30 brussels sprouts, cleaned and stems trimmed
