  • 1 pound of brussels sprouts
  • 2 strips of thick-cut Applewood Smoked Bacon
  • 1/2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Cut the bacon into about 1/2" cubes and cook in a large skillet until crispy.
  • Remove the bacon and the grease from the skillet, leaving about 1 tablespoon of grease behind.
  • Cut the blunt end off each of the brussels sprouts then cut them in half lengthwise, peeling off a layer or two from them, like you would with cabbage.
  • Transfer them to the skillet facedown, season with salt and pepper and cook over medium heat about 5-7 minutes per side or until they're fork tender.
  • Whisk the maple syrup, Dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar together.
  • When the brussels sprouts are completely cooked, pour the glaze and the bacon pieces over the top, blending. Simmer over low heat 3-4 minutes then serve right away.
