Crispy Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts | 3 Ingredients | 30 minutes | Easy Thanksgiving Side Dish

The only way to make brussels sprouts taste good is to make them not taste like brussels sprouts. This recipe combines two of the best ingredients- bacon and maple syrup to create the best sweet and smoky sprouts you have ever had! If you would have asked me a year ago if I liked brussels sprouts- I would have told you absolutely not, they're gross. That is until I bought them on a whim one day and created this gorgeous creature. The maple syrup creates a delicious crispy caramelization on the sprouts, and the bacon adds a savory depth of flavor that is unmatched. This recipe requires almost zero prep and is a great quick and easy, set it and forget it recipe that's packed with flavor!
