  • pounds fresh Brussels sprouts trimmed
  • 4 slices bacon diced
  • 1 shallot diced
  • kosher salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup grated sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter divided


  • Lightly grease a 2-quart oven-safe baking dish.
  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add in the trimmed sprouts and cook for 8 minutes. Drain and cut in half.
  • Wipe out the skillet and add in the bacon and shallots. Cook until the bacon is the crispy and the shallots are soft with golden edges. Use a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate.
  • Place the halved Brussels sprouts in the buttered baking dish, sprinkle with salt and pepper and scatter the bacon and shallots over top.
  • Next, pour in the cream, top with the grated cheddar and breadcrumbs. Dot with remaining tablespoon and a half of butter and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes, or until bubbly and golden.
