Brussels in Blankets

These super sprouts are so cute, they’re irresistible. The recipe can be a side dish or an appetizer, and it’s a cinch to make — only three ingredients. The best way to get a picky eater to eat their vegetables? Wrap ’em in bacon!


One 9-ounce container fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half lengthwise
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12-14 slices turkey bacon, cut in half


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss Brussels sprouts with olive oil and sprinkle on salt and pepper.
  2. One at a time, pick up each sprout and wrap with half a slice of turkey bacon (tuck edges of bacon underneath cut side of sprout so it stays put). Place sprout cut side down on baking sheet. Repeat until all sprouts have been wrapped in bacon. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
