*Use regular-cut, not thick-cut bacon for this recipe. Thick-cut bacon takes longer to cook and is more difficult to wrap around the Brussels. Your bacon should be at room temperature so it will mold around the Brussels sprouts halves. If your bacon is not at room temperature, you will likely need a toothpick to help keep it secure.
