Cheesy Bacon Brussels Sprouts Recipe
We added some cheese and other delicious ingredients to these Brussels Sprouts and they are amazing!
- 2 pounds Brussels Sprouts
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 2 Tablespoons flour
- 1 ½ cups milk
- ½ cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
- ½ cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 10 strips bacon cooked and crumbled
Cut off the stem of the brussels sprouts and remove any yellow leaves. Chop brussels sprouts in half length wise.
Bring a pot of water to a boil and boil brussels sprouts for about 5 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse brussels sprouts in cold water so the cooking stops. Set aside.
In a pan over medium heat melt butter. Add in flour and whisk to make roux. (If you are using uncooked bacon, you can substitute the butter for the leftover bacon grease in the pan).
Add milk and whisk until completely incorporated. Cook on medium heat, stirring, until mixture thickens.
Remove from heat and stir in cheeses, salt, and pepper until cheese is completely melted.
Add Brussels sprouts and crumbled bacon to cheese sauce and mix until combined.
Move Brussels sprouts to a small 8 x 8 inch pan and top with more Mozzarella cheese.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 25 minutes or until cheese begins to golden on top.
