Sweet & Savory Brussels Sprouts


Sweet & Savory Brussels Sprouts

25 Min

Whether you enjoy them as an anytime appetizer or serve these as a show-stopping side dish, we promise you can’t miss. That’s because we wrapped the Brussels sprouts in bacon, sprinkled on some brown sugar, and finished them off with our sweet & tangy fig sauce. Sounds pretty tempting, huh?

What You'll Need

  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen Brussels sprouts, thawed
  • 9 to 10 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • Coarse black pepper for sprinkling
  • 1/3 cup fig jam
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Gently squeeze Brussels sprouts with a paper towel to dry. Place one sprout at one end of bacon. Roll up and place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining Brussels sprouts. Sprinkle with brown sugar and pepper.
  2. Bake 28 to 30 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine jam and mustard; mix well. Drizzle the fig mixture over Brussels sprouts or, set out a bowl of it as a to-die-for dipping sauce.

Test Kitchen Tip

Frozen Brussel sprouts work best for this as they are tender enough once thawed without having to steam them before wrapping each one.
