Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Mini Kabobs

I don’t do a ton of meat, but I have to admit, I have been known to order bacon from time to time when I go out to breakfast. And I feel like it’s not really a party until you wrap something in bacon—or in this case, pair something with bacon.

Just double up on the Brussels sprouts, two per toothpick—they’re a great crunchy, salty snack all on their own. Enjoy!
