2 tablespoons maple syrup

Add the brussels to the bacon grease still in the skillet and stir to coat. Cook until the sprouts begin to soften, about 5 minutes, then stir in the maple syrup. Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes, stirring, then season with the salt and the pepper. Add the bacon back into the skillet and add half of the cheese, stirring to combine.
