Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts

Whoever thinks that brussel sprouts aren’t delicious is just cookin’ them up all wrong. Our Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts recipe will knock those metaphorical socks off your holiday dinner. 

A mixture of shallots and plant based Bacon set the stage for the main attraction, brussel sprouts. The brussel sprouts are carried to another level through a combination of maple syrup (we are Canadian, eh) and the bright flavours from the rosemary and parsley. A flavourful mixture that will have you coming back for seconds (or maybe even thirds).

So do up the brussel sprouts the right way - even young Jack will be eatin’ his greens.

Maple Bacon Brussel Sprouts


1kg brussel sprouts, cleaned and halved 
1 cup sliced shallots
½ package Very Good Bacon, cut into small pieces 
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup olive oil
2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary 
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley 
Coarse salt 
Freshly cracked peppercorns 


In a large saucepan place 3 litres of water and 1 tbsp of salt, and bring to the boil. 

In the meantime, in a large pan heat oil over medium-high heat and then add shallots and bacon. Cook for 6-7 minutes or until the shallots are tender. 

Once the water is boiling, place the brussel sprouts in boiling water and blanch for 3-5 minutes. After blanching, drain brussel sprouts before putting in the pan to sauté with shallots and bacon.

After a couple of minutes of sauteing add maple syrup to the pan and bring it to a boil. Once brought to a boil, add chopped herbs toss and serve.
