Creamy Brussel Sprouts With Bacon

 

Ingredients
 
  • 12 oz bacon, thick cut, cut into pieces
  • 2 lbs. Brussels Sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • Salt and Pepper , to taste
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream, or half and half
  • cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • ¾ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

 

Instructions
    • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    • Cook bacon in a large cast iron skillet until browned and crisp. Use a slotted spoon to remove bacon to a paper towel lined plate. Remove and discard all but 2 to 3 tbsp of bacon grease.
 
  • Add Brussels sprouts to bacon grease in pan and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until Brussels sprouts over medium-high heat until they are lightly charred, about 6 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant.
  • Remove Brussels Sprouts from pan to a plate (or baking dish if not using an oven safe pan). Melt the butter in the pan over medium heat and then whisk in the flour. Gradually whisk in the heavy cream until heated through, then stir in the parmesan cheese until melted and smooth.
  • Add the Brussels sprouts and bacon back to the pan and stir to coat (or if using a baking dish, pour cream mixture over Brussels sprouts and bacon and stir to coat). Finish off with the mozzarella cheese and give it a quick stir.
  • Bake in oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the center of dish is bubbly and Brussels sprouts are tender.

As a keto eater, I LOVE this dish!  My recipe is slightly different (no flour) and I think there might be a tiny bit of cream cheese in it - not sure off hand. I use HWC (no half & half).  I have to watch myself because the carbs in the sprouts add up quickly.  If they weren’t an issue, I could eat a plateful!  I have plans to make it next week, probably Thursday.

This looks amazing!  I sure wish I could use frozen brussel sprouts since I have a huge bag of them in the freezer.  I'm thinking fresh would be the only way to go with this one.

@Reconnaissant   You’re welcome.  Normally I’m not a big brussel sprout lover, but SO is, and he loved it too!
