bacon blanketed brussels sprouts

Posted on October 25th, 2011  |  5 Comments

I swear I don’t mean to follow meatless Monday with meatfull Tuesday, but with last week’s carnitas and this week’s bacon wrapped brussels sprouts, I might be sending you subliminal messages. (jk I promise I don’t even know how to do that.)

But I did bring you bacon. Yes, bacon.


I tried cutting bacon out of my diet completely, it not being Kosher and all, but I just couldn’t. Not all the way. Not yet.

So, in celebration of this awesomely rad brussels sprout branch I proudly carried around in my grocery cart all Sunday afternoon, and in honor of NOT GIVING UP bacon… I bring you these cute little blanketed babies.

A perfect remedy for those picky eaters who hate all that is green.


Just hide it in bacon! Problem solved.

I think they were pretty tasty on their own, but they were even better dunked in the best ever mustard BBQ sauce courtesy of Beachwood BBQ here in Long Beach.

Lui took me there for he first time last weekend and we have already gone back! It may or may not have to do with this flavor explosion in your mouth mustard sauce. I’m in love. With a sauce. Yep.

So in love, I asked the waiter where I can get my fix if they sold any and, lo and behold, they did. In a cool bottle too!

If you aren’t in the Long Beach area and can’t get your hands on this, I’m super sorry, but here’s another really good mustard sauce recipe for dunking these crisp cabbage balls.

Or come by. Let’s have lunch. At Beachwood BBQ!

Ridiculous Pulled Chicken Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries

Best Ever Fried Green Tomatoes

Did I mention it’s a Brewery?

Happy Tuesday!

    Oh. my. god.
    I always chop up a little bacon and throw it in the pan while roasting sprouts- but this takes it to a whole other dimension! This looks like a really good idea for an appetizer for a party – one I might have to make for our “ugly Christmas sweater party” this year!

  3. Thanks! I think it would be an all star app at any party, you could even cut them in half for easier eating… and perhaps more bacon:brussels ratio going on. super easy to make too!
