slices bacon, diced
small onion, thinly sliced
cups fresh Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced
cup pure maple syrup
tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
tablespoon balsamic vinegar
tablespoons all-purpose flour
of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets(1 sheet), thawed
Heat the oven to 400°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cook the bacon in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove the bacon from the skillet.
Add the onion and salt to the skillet and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the onion is tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Stir in the Brussels sprouts and cook for 3 minutes.
Stir the maple syrup, mustard and vinegar in the skillet and heat to a boil. Cook and stir for 5 minutes until the Brussels sprouts are tender and the maple syrup mixture is reduced. Stir in the bacon. Remove the skillet from the heat.
Sprinkle the flour on the work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Using a round cutter, cut the pastry sheet into 15 (3-inch) circles. Place the pastry circles onto the baking sheets.
Spoon about 2 tablespoons Brussels sprout mixture on each pastry circle to within 1/2-inch of the edge.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Let the pastries cool on the baking sheets on wire racks for 10 minutes.
