This Cheesy Bacon Brussel Sprouts dish is a real gem of a recipe.
Pretty enough to grace a plate at any gathering and yummy and satisfying enough to complement your favorite main meat dish on a weeknight.
I was raised on brussel sprouts country cousin, cabbage, but the flavors are so similar and for ease of serving and a pretty presentation these little sprouts can’t be beat!
This veggie/cheese side dish shines because the earthy flavor of the brussel sprouts is complemented and not covered by the mild cheeses chosen.
