Intro: Cheesy Bacon Brussel Sprouts
In this instructable I will give you a step by step guide to making these delicious cheesy bacon brussel sprouts. I know for many people like me, just mention "cheese" and that's enough, let alone adding bacon and Brussel sprouts. Hope you enjoy!
Step 1: Ingredients
5 Slices of Bacon (cut into pieces)
2 T Butter
4 C Brussels Sprouts (washed, bottoms cut and sliced in half)
Salt and pepper to your taste
5 Cloves of Garlic minced
1 ½ C Cream
1 ½ t Cornstarch mixed with
1 Tablespoon Water
½ C Shredded Mozzarella
¼ C Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Step 2: Preheat Oven and Cook the Bacon
Start off by preheating your oven to 375 F.
In an oven safe sauce pan add in your bacon and cook unto it becomes crispy. Once crispy, take your bacon out of the pot and put in a bowl, take out the fat in the pan and discard properly.
Step 3: Butter, Brussel Sprouts & Seasonings
Add in your butter to your pot and your Brussel sprouts and season it with salt and pepper.
Cook for about 7 minute and lower your heat to low.
Add in your garlic and cream and cook for another 5 minutes.
Step 4: Add Bacon & Mix
Add in your cornstarch and water and mix until it is all combined.
Add in your bacon and mix till combined.
Step 5: Into the Oven We Go!
Top your mixture with your mozzarella and parmesan cheese and bake for 15 minutes or until your mixture is bubbly and golden brown (you can also broil this)
Step 6: Cool & Enjoy!
Take it out of the oven, remember to let it cool (I always have a hard time with that) sprinkle it with fresh parsley if you want and serve as a side dish.
