Take-out Tuesday, Brussels Sprouts & Bacon Gratin

Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes about hurricane Nate.  I am happy to report that we were very lucky and had no damage, no power loss, and things are back to normal  😅  It was very windy, lots of tornado warnings, and scary stuff, but thankfully it was over quickly~

Stressful times call for comfort food!

I know some people have a severe aversion to Brussels Sprouts,

HH is one of them…

 

 

But, he’s in the minority, and they are my very favorite, so I cook them all the time

 

 

Even HH will eat them when they are roasted and paired with bacon

 

 

And covered with cheese?

 

 

Yes Please!

 

 

Add some cream and it’s a dream

 

 

Part creamy, part crispy, with savory little charred edges…

 

 

See all the textures and colors, layers and flavors???

 

 

So easy!

Brussel Sprouts & Bacon Gratin

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

30 Brussels Sprouts

8 slices bacon

olive oil

salt and pepper

1/2 cup half and half

2 oz. shaved Parmesan cheese

3 oz. crumbled bleu cheese, optional

Place bacon on a parchment lined baking sheet, leaving spaces between the strips.  Wash sprouts, cut off ends and cut in half.  Place sprouts evenly between the strips of bacon.  Drizzle sprouts lightly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Roast at 400 degrees until bacon and sprouts are done, 20-25 minutes.  Drain bacon on paper towels and tear or cut into 1 inch pieces.  Place sprouts and bacon in a lightly greased or sprayed 1 1/2 quart baking dish.  Pour cream over all and sprinkle with cheeses.  Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes until golden and set.

 

Pin this for Thanksgiving feasting!

    Glad you came through Nate unscathed Jenna! We were fortunate to miss the tornadic activity from Nate passing through here unlike those in western NC and upstate SC. We love sprouts and your gratin sounds delicious! I bet it would be good with the addition of some dried cranberries too. 🙂

    I’m so glad you “weathered” Nate. When I saw its track on the weather channel, I thought about you and expressed concern. Whew!! There is absolutely nothing that could make your dish sound yummier!!! It is now in my recipe file and a major contender for a Thanksgiving side!! Thanks for sharing!

  11. So happy you weathered this latest hurricane Jenna. Oh your nerves! HH is onto to something. I never thought I liked brussel sprouts either until they met pancetta/bacon! Marriage made in heaven. Don’t you love when you find them on those stalks?
