Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts

Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday and always has been! Love me the combination of food and family. #theresnothingbetter My lovely blogger friends and I are back with a Thanksgiving recipe collaboration. This month we focused on whole foods, sans gluten-dairy-grains-sugar. 

I got assigned the appetizer and my recipe includes bacon. Because why not. Scroll all the way down for that recipe. For now, let’s take a lookski at what everyone else made.

You could use any flavor of bacon you desire…like an Apple Maple Smoked Bacon, man that would have been delish! 

I prepared myself for a giant greasy mess, but the bacon didn’t actually produce as much grease as pan frying. Few.

If I were a piece of girl bacon, I’d totally hit on this boy bacon.

Yah, I didn’t get that joke either but I just went with it, okay.

    Love bacon + brussel sprouts paired together. Haha I’m with you, I’d much rather have a bacon pop 😉 The curry sweet potatoes from Taylor sound great too!

    Yummmm this all looks so good. Davida and I have something in common (yet another thing, actually!)… because I just started liking bacon as well after not eating it for about 15 years straight! What I was thinking, I don’t know… but bacon + brussels may as well be the best recipe of all time because those are two of my very favs combined!!!
