  • 1/4 cup Wholesome Yum Keto Maple Syrup (or regular syrup if you don’t need these low carb)
  • 1/8 tsp Cayenne pepper (or more if you want more heat)
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C). Place an oven-safe rack over a baking sheet.
    Lay out the short (halved) bacon pieces in a single layer. Brush with maple syrup. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper.
    Flip the bacon pieces over, so that the maple syrup is on the bottom. Place a brussels sprout at the end of a bacon slice and roll up. Place onto the baking sheet, seam side down. Repeat with the remaining sprouts. Brush remaining maple syrup over the top of the brussels and bacon.
    Bake for about 25 minutes, until bacon is crispy and brussels sprouts are tender.
    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, make the dipping sauce. Stir together the mayonnaise, maple syrup, mustard, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper, until smooth.
    Serve warm bacon wrapped brussels sprouts with dipping sauce.
