Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C), rack in the middle and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Soak toothpicks in a bowl of water.

2. Blanch Brussels sprouts in boiling water for 2 or 3 minutes, then drain and transfer to iced water to stop cooking.

3. Coat each side of bacon with the brown sugar and then wrap tightly around the Brussels sprout ensuring the ends overlap by half a inch. Depending on the size of the Brussels sprouts you can cut your bacon strips in half or thirds.

4. Secure the bacon with a toothpick and lay the sprout in the baking pan. Place in the oven and roast for 10 minutes.

5. In the meantime, whisk together the Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, maple syrup, salt and black pepper.

6. Remove the pan from the oven and gently brush the Brussels sprouts with the glaze. Roast for another 10 minutes or until the bacon has crisped up and the sprouts are cooked through (they will pierce easily with a knife). Remove from oven and drizzle with remaining glazer. Enjoy!

Note: If you prefer skipping the blanching step, just roast 10 to 15 minutes more in the oven.
