Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts
I started this blog after I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. After struggling to adjust to a mandatory gluten free diet, I wanted to create a resource for others trying to learn their way around this gluten filled world.
I have been seeing a lot of bacon wrapped Brussels Sprouts lately, so I thought I would give them a try! This is the yin and yang of snacks, half healthy and half guilty pleasure, perfectly in harmony.
It is crispy and crunchy when you first bite in, but then you’re welcomed by a perfectly al dente Brussels Sprouts. I paired mine with oven-baked salmon. Have a go at it for yourself, read on below!
10 Brussels Sprouts, cut in half
10 bacon, cut in half
2 tablespoon butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Everyday Seasoning from Trader Joe’s
Pasta that's delicious and healthy - made from 100% vegetables and gluten-free!
1. Preheat oven to 425° Fahrenheit. Line a cooking sheet with foil.
2. In a small, microwave safe bowl, heat butter for 30 seconds until melted. Cut Brussel sprouts in half and add to butter. Sprinkle with salt and everyday seasoning from Trader Joe’s. Mix until covered evenly.
3. Cut bacon in half. Wrap Brussel sprouts in bacon covering the entire Brussel sprout and place on baking sheet with foil. Cover Brussel sprouts with another sheet of foil and fold the two sheets of foil together to make a tight seal. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and remove top foil and return to the over. Bake for an additional 6-8 minutes until bacon is fully cooked.
4. Serve warm and enjoy.
