Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Two 16-ounce packages of bacon
2 tablespoons honey
Chopped chives, for serving
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Season the Brussels sprouts with salt and pepper.
2. Using a pair of kitchen shears, cut down the length of each piece of bacon to separate the darker half from the lighter, fattier half. Discard the lighter halves.
3. Securely wrap each sprout in a bacon strip and place it, seam side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet. Season with pepper.
4. Bake until the bacon is crisp and the Brussels sprouts are browning in places, 30 to 40 minutes. Drizzle the bacon-wrapped Brussels sprouts with honey and top with chives.
