You need to let them cool down all the way and then store them in an airtight container. Keep them chilled in the fridge, and eat them within 2 days.

I would say that wrapped bacon sprouts pair well with just about anything! The crisp bacon gives that texture that we all love and crave, while the fresh Brussels sprouts offer a flavor and tenderness.
You could easily pair these crispy Brussel sprouts with any type of main entree. Add a little bit of Parmesan cheese on top, and you've got a simple meal on its own!
Yes! You can choose the dipping sauce of your choice! Dipping them into ranch dressing, hot sauce, or anything else that you are craving sounds delicious!
If you are not a fan of dipping, don't forget that you can drizzle. Putting a little bit of balsamic vinegar over the top would be a really unique flavor and taste.

VariationsChange up the flavor of bacon - You can use salty bacon, crispy bacon, thick cut bacon, or any piece of bacon or strip of bacon that you want. Maple bacon sounds like some pretty good strips of bacon to add to this easy recipe! Add toppings - Let's be truthful here and say that toppings are always a crowd-pleaser. Drizzling some olive oil with salt and black pepper on top of this delicious appetizer adds taste in an easy way. You can add soy sauce to these tender brussels sprouts after they are done cooking, or add some sweetness with a drizzle of maple syrup!
