Variations Ideas

  • Seasoning – You can easily change or substitute the seasoning if you prefer. You can add garlic powder, onion powder or more.
  • Bacon – When choosing the strips of bacon, you can use any kind. If you prefer you can also use turkey bacon. Just make sure to cut into smaller pieces.
  • Serving – I like to serve this appetizer during the holiday season. It is a perfect to serve at Christmas or New Years Eve. Serve with BBQ Sauce, Maple Syrup or Ranch as dipping sauces.
  • Skewers – We have even made this appetizer on skewers. I usually choose smaller brussel sprouts to add to skewers.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1 – Soak Toothpicks – Soak toothpicks in water for a few hours before using them. This is to keep them from burning on the grill. 
  • Step 2 – Heat Grill – Preheat the grill over medium heat (approximately 300 degrees Fahrenheit).

Recipe Tips

  • Toothpick – We recommend soak toothpick in water to prevent easy appetizer bacon wrapped brussels sprouts from burning.
  • Prepare Brussel Sprouts – Trim and cut the yellow leaves from the brussel sprouts. When buying brussel sprouts I look for ones that are not damaged and are firm.
  • Cut Bacon – Cut bacon in halves or thirds to evenly wrap around the Brussel Sprouts.
  • Wrapping the Brussel Sprouts – When we wrap the brussel sprouts with bacon, we like to wrap it one time around. This allows for the bacon to get completely cook and get crispy.
  • Grilling – While grilling the brussel sprouts make to sure to rotate. This allows all sides to cook crispy and tender.
