Helpful Tips and FAQs

What if I can’t find baby Brussel Sprouts?

Sometimes it can be hard to find baby Brussel Sprouts, so there is an easy alternative. If you are buying larger sprouts, choose similar-sized sprouts and slice them in half. You will likely find during cooking that a few leaves break free, but not to worry, they will still have a lovely maple bacon taste.

Things to look for when choosing Brussel Sprouts.

When choosing Brussel Sprouts, baby or regular size, look for firm sprouts that have tightly packed leaves, It is common to have a couple of loose other leaves but a good tight sprout is a good sign that it has not dried out.

Choose sprouts that are similar in size, they will cook more evenly and look nicer in the final dish.

How to prep the Brussel Sprouts.

Wash and trim off the bottom stem area of the Brussel Sprouts, using a paring knife. Remove any blemished outer leaves.

How much bacon should I use if I can’t find thick-sliced bacon?

If the bacon that you have is very thin, use 4 slices in place of the 2 pieces of thickly sliced. If the bacon is a regular slice, use three slices in place

Can I use a different Sugar-Free Syrup?

I chose Walden Farms Maple bacon syrup as it is zero calories, has zero carbs, and is fat-free. If you choose to substitute with another brand of sugar-free syrup, be aware that the nutritional information will change.
