We love Brussels sprouts so it came as no surprise that we loved this recipe. I will definitely make this again and again.

I served these for Thanksgiving Dinner last year for the first time and they’re sooo good! Our dinner guests left with the recipe and even my husband (who doesn’t like Brussels Sprouts) came back for seconds. The bacon and maple syrup is a winning combination! They’re on the menu again for today’s dinner!

This is a very delicious side dish! I used real bacon bits rather than chopping and cooking bacon slices, and it turned out beautifully. My husband is not a fan of Brussels sprouts, but he said they actually tasted good in this recipe.

Our son-in-law loves brussel sprouts, so once in awhile I make him some. These were so good, that the rest of the family enjoyed them. This is a keeper!

I loved the sweetness of the maple syrup paired with the saltiness of the bacon

We just didn't like the maple syrup. It was overwhelming.

I've made theses a different way and they were amazing , I cut the Brussels sprouts in half and roasted them at 400 until tender and slightly crispy. Sprinkled them with olive oil before roasting. And sprinkled with salt and pepper. Them after they were done I just drizzled them with regular maple syrup. We have had these sprinkled with crisp bacon and without bacon at all. Both ways are amazing!

This was good, but I was hoping for more of a glaze like it's made at one of our favorite restaurants. Next time I would cook in the broth then completely drain then saut? in the maple syrup until caramelized.
