Honey Mustard-Glazed, Bacon-Wrapped Brussel SproutsCarmen Sturdy
- 28 small brussel sprouts
- 14 slices bacon
Honey Dijon Glaze
- 1/2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
- 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
Creamy Mustard Dip
- 2 tbsp Maille Dijon Mustard Originale
- 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- pinch cayenne pepper
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and place a wire rack onto a baking tray.
- To prepare the glaze, whisk the dijon mustard and honey together in a bowl until smooth.
- Prep the brussel sprouts by washing them and cutting off any of the tough outter leaves.
- Wrap a strip of bacon around each brussel sprout ensuring that it slightly overlaps (the bacon will shrink when baked). One strip of bacon should be enough for 2 brussel sprouts. Place the bacon wrapped brussel sprouts on the wire rack.
- Brush each of the brussel sprouts with the dijon glaze and then place the tray in the oven to bake. They should take approximately 30 minutes to bake and are done when the bacon is crisp and the brussel sprouts are tender. Half way through baking remove from the oven and brush with more glaze before continuing to bake.
- To make the dipping sauce, in a bowl whisk together the dijon mustard, mayonnaise, honey and cayenne.
- To serve, place the brussel sprouts on a plate, brush with more sauce and serve with toothpicks and the creamy mustard sauce for dipping.
