I always re-hydrate my sprouts overnite in cool water in the fridge, after slightly trimming the base. I was quite pleased with these appetizers which I cooked in my Turbo Convection oven on the counter top. I chose a different sauce to serve them with. They were GREAT. I'd bet they would be even greater if smoked.
These were OK, nothing special or over the top. I was expecting to be wowed based on the reviews. Did not care for the dip especially. The bacon and brussels sprouts were OK, and it really does make the whole house smell, so if you can, open the windows!
Found this recipe in Southern Living a year or so again - glad to see it here on Recipezaar! These are SO delicious!! I made them on Christmas day when we had a casual get together - playing darts with friends after everyone had had enough family time. :) I made everything according to recipe and they were delightful! One word of advice - they smell up the house something fierce! So make them on a nice day so you can have your windows open to air it out! LOL They are worth smelling up the house like brussels sprouts though! We had NO leftovers.
We love brussels sprouts and bacon but found these to be just okay. The creamy mustard sauce made way too much and I don't know what to do with what's left.
DH raved about these. What a great recipe. I didn't use as much bacon as called for since my sprouts were so small (I used frozen). The flavor was excellent. I served this with the mustard sauce and also some ranch dressing. I also used metal skewers instead of the tooth picks and placed them over a foiled rimmed pan since I didn't have a wire rack turning them over half way through cooking time. Worked like a charm Thanks so much for sharing. Made for I Recommend
That much maligned vegetable, the humble Brussel sprout, is an absolute star in this yummy recipe, thanks no doubt to the delicious bacon and the wonderfully flavoursome creamy mustard sauce. ;) These would make fantastic appetisers that I can well imagine would disappear in a flash! On this occasion, I made half the quantity for three of us and we enjoyed them with a - nearly - vegetarian meal with Ina's Herbed Basmati Rice and Baked Caramelized Parmesan Tomatoes. I enjoy a lot of vegetarian dishes but bacon is something I would be reluctant to give up and this recipe was yet another reminder of why! Although I made only a half quantity of the bacon wrapped sprouts, I made a full serve of the creamy mustard sauce and was so glad that I had done so as we all enjoyed it and the rice was great served with it for mopping up every last drop. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, mary. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
I love brussel sprouts and I love bacon so how could I have gone wrong here? I didn't precook the bacon and adjusted the baking time to coordinate with the lower temp I had been using to cook my holiday ham. The creamy mustard sauce was like icing on the cake - it just made me smile :) Thanks for posting!
I made these little delights for Thanks Giving Dinner and although I HATED brussels sprouts; these things were amazing and were scooped up so fast I could not believe it!!! it is a definite regular on my buffet table from now on.
Mary - these are great little appetizers!! Everyone at Thanksgiving was very skeptical but once they dipped this little goodies into the mustard sauce they were won over! I used a garlic pepper grinder for the pepper in your recipe. They baked up perfectly in 20 minutes. Thanks for adding to my Thanksgiving day with a terrific appy. Made for Newest Zaar Tag Game.
