Bacon-Wrapped Brussels Bites

Bacon-Wrapped Brussels Bites

Bacon-wrapped Brussels Bites

Course Appetizer, Snack

Ingredients
  

  • 18 Brussels sprouts washed and trimmed
  • 9 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 4 oz herbed cream cheese or herbed creamy goat cheese

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place wet sprouts in loosely covered microwave-safe bowl or bag and microwave on high for two minutes to blanch. Remove from microwave and allow to cool.
  • Line a microwave-safe plate with four paper towels. Cut bacon strips in half, crosswise, and place in a single layer on top of paper towels on plate. Depending on size of plate/microwave, you may have to do this in two batches. Cover with another paper towel. Microwave on high for approximately three minutes or until bacon is partially cooked yet still very pliable and  far from crispy (exact time depends of your microwave and the thickness of your bacon).
  • Using a small paring knife, cut an “X” in the top of each sprout, cutting two-thirds of the way down through the sprout so that the stem end is still intact.
  • Stir herbed cheese to soften and put in resealable plastic bag. Seal bag and snip off the tip of one of the bottom corners of the bag to create a disposable pastry bag.
  • Insert tip of bag down into the “X” in sprout and gently squeeze to fill sprout with a bit of the cheese. Repeat with all sprouts.
  • Wrap spouts with bacon, covering cheese-filled “X” and secure with toothpicks.
  • Arrange sprouts scored side up (stem-side down) on wire rack on rimmed cookie sheet. Bake until bacon is crisp, about 25 minutes.

  • 1 stalk Brussels sprouts washed, dried, outer leaves removed
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • cup olive oil
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Trim down stalk to fit your largest roasting pan, keeping the fullest, most uniform portion of the stalk intact. Remove sprouts from trimmed part of the stalk.
  • Heat stock to a simmer in small sauce pan. Place stalk on rack in roasting pan. Add sprouts that have been removed from trimmed part of the stalk by placing them in between attached sprouts. Pour stock into pan, cover, and place in oven, allowing stalk to steam for twenty minutes. If your roasting pan does not have a lid, tent with heavy-weight aluminum foil.
  • Place maple syrup and olive oil in mason jar with tight-fitting lid. Shake to emulsify.

Brush syrup mixture over sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and return to oven to roast uncovered for about 45 minutes, basting every fifteen minutes with pan drippings, until slightly brown and fully cooked. If you notice that the pan drippings are starting to dry up or burn, add a little more water to the pan 1/2 cup at a time.

Set roasting pan on stove top over low heat and simmer for five minutes, allowing drippings to reduce and cranberries to plump.
