Party Panache, Bacon Wrapped Brussels with Cranberry Orange Glaze

I know I post a LOT of Brussels sprouts recipes

{ one of my very favorite foods }

BUT WAIT!

This recipe also includes a delicious Maple- Orange Cranberry Sauce from French Gardner Dishes that will go perfectly with your holiday meats!

 

 

 

 

I made this for Thanksgiving and used the leftover sauce to glaze the bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts we noshed on for the Iron Bowl game that Saturday

 

 

 

 

This recipe is very easy, and very holiday festive!

 

 

 

 

The 3 ingredient sauce takes no time to put together, just simmer the berries in the orange juice and maple syrup until the berries burst

 

 

 

 

Transfer sauce to a jar, let cool and refrigerate.  It will thicken up as it cools

 

 

 

 

Have you ever seen Baby Purple Brussels Sprouts?  They are a hybrid of Brussels Sprouts and red cabbage, and supposed to taste a little sweeter

 

 

 

 

Trim sprouts and wrap in a piece of bacon.  These sprouts are small so I only need about 1/4 of a piece.  If some of your sprouts are larger than the others, cut them in half so cooking time will be the same as the smaller ones

 

 

 

 

Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or until bacon and sprouts are cooked through

 

 

 

Drain on paper towels then transfer into a baking dish

 

 

 

Pour the cranberry sauce over all

 

 

 

 

Serve with cocktail forks or tooth picks

The Cranberry Orange Sauce is adapted from French Gardner Dishes

fresh Brussel Sprouts {plan on 3-4 per person}

bacon strips {1 slice for 3-4 sprouts}

Cranberry Orange Glaze

Trim sprouts and cut in half if necessary so all the sprouts are roughly the same size.  Wrap each sprout in bacon and place on a parchment lined baking sheet with bacon ends tucked under sprouts.  Roast at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until bacon and sprouts are done.  Drain well on paper towels.  Transfer to a shallow baking dish.  Pour enough sauce over sprouts to coat them well.  Place dish in a 350 oven until sauce and sprouts are heating through.  Serve with toothpicks or cocktail forks

Cranberry Orange Glaze

12 oz fresh cranberries

1 cup orange juice

1 cup real maple syrup

zest from 1 orange

Put cranberries, zest, juice and syrup into a large sauce pan.  Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer.  Cook until berries burst open and soften.  Remove pan from heat and let sauce cool.  Once cool put sauce into a large jar and refrigerate for up to a week.  Makes about 1 pint.

 

Fa la la!
