Our family really likes brussels sprouts, and adding cheese and bacon makes this an irresistable side vegetable.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Remove any discolored outer leaves and trim stem portion of brussels sprouts. In a 3-quart saucepan, place brussels sprouts; add enough water just to cover. Heat to boiling; boil 6-8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and return to saucepan; set aside.

  3. Add butter to bacon fat in skillet. Heat over medium-high heat until butter is melted. Add onion; cook 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender. Add flour, thyme and pepper; cook and stir until well-blended. Gradually stir in half-and-half and bouillon granules. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly; boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese.
  4. Pour sauce over brussels sprouts in saucepan; mix gently. Spoon into 2-quart casserole. Bake uncovered 25-30 minutes, sprinkling with crumbled bacon and Cheddar cheese for last 10 minutes of baking, until hot and bubbly. Serve right away.

Oh, my! These are great! I lightened this a bit by using turkey bacon and fat free half and half. Still very yummy! I love my Brussels sprouts, so I'm always looking for great ways to fix them. Thanx for posting.
