I created this tasty veggie dish for people like me, quite frankly, who are NOT very fond of this vegetable. It will make a lovely addition to your holiday table. I love smoked Gouda cheese and this rendition of this nutritious vegetable even I like! I just don’t say that very often about Brussels sprouts. We both thoroughly enjoyed this and make it often now. This veggie dish is suitable for all phases of Atkins, Keto diets and Primal Blueprint as well.
14 oz. frozen Brussels sprouts (cut in halves)
4 slices coarsely chopped bacon
2 oz. yellow onion, chopped
4 oz. smoked Gouda cheese, shredded/grated
VARIATION: Omit the bacon for the cheese flavor to be more dominant.
DIRECTIONS: Boil Brussels sprouts for 3 minutes. Cut them in halves or smaller if you prefer. In skillet, brown bacon. Add chopped onion and saute together until onion caramelized. Toss in the Brussels sprouts and stir, cooking for just a few minutes. Transfer to baking dish if you prefer. Top with grated cheese and bake at 350º for 15-20 minutes.
