  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • Bacon and Brussels Sprouts
  • 6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large shallot, sliced
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning, or oregano, or thyme
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 pounds Brussels Sprouts, rinsed and halved
  • Salt, to taste
  • Creamy sauce:
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup Gruere Cheese (or white cheddar), shredded
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp butter, cut into pieces


Heat 6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces, over medium-high heat in a large cast iron pan or Dutch oven. Cook, stirring frequently, until well browned, about 8 minutes. Remove from pan.
Add shallots and 1 tsp Italian seasoning and cook, stirring, until shallots are softened and fragrant, about 1 minute.
Brussels Sprouts
Move shallots all the way to the side (to avoid overlooking them when browning the sprouts) and add 2 tbsp butter. Once melted, fill the pan with Brussels sprouts and cook on medium high heat until nicely browned, about 4 minutes. Now you can mix those shallots with the sprouts.
Heavy cream
Add 1.5 cups heavy cream and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a simmer.
Adding bacon, cheese and bread crumbs.
Add cooked bacon to the pan. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste. Top with 1 cup Gruyere cheese, then 1 cup bread crumbs and dot with 2 tbsp butter pieces.
Bake at 425 F until bubbly and golden brown, about 15 minutes.
