Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts have the perfect balance of sweet, salt and crunch! These brussels sprouts are so good, you can eat them on their own, or serve them with most any dinner recipe!



  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half, larger sprouts can be cut into quarters
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place the Brussels sprouts on a 13 inch by 18 inch sheet pan in a single layer. Drizzle on the olive and and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. If you don’t have a large enough sheet pan, use two instead of crowding the pan.
  3. Roast for 10 minutes and then remove the sprouts from the oven. Drizzle on the maple syrup and then add the crumbled bacon and walnuts and toss to coat the ingredients.
  4. Roast the Brussels sprouts for another 7-8 minutes until the sprouts are tender and caramelized. The cooking time will depend on the size of your Brussels sprouts, larger sprouts will need more time in the oven at the first step, before adding the maple syrup and bacon.
  5. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Store: Cool the brussels sprouts to room temperature before storing in an air tight container. The brussels sprouts will keep in the refrigerator for 4 days.

Reheat: Reheat leftover sprouts in the microwave.

Freeze: Freeze cooled brussels sprouts in a resealable freezer bag for up to 6 months. To reheat frozen sprouts, warm in a 350 degrees oven or add to a skillet with a drizzle of olive oil. Microwaving will make the spouts softer in texture.
