British Brussel Sprouts Recipe

Ingredients:
2 cups Brussels sprouts, boiled cut off bottoms and trim off extra leaves
1 cup Gruyere cheese, shredded
4 slices bacon

Instructions:

Cook the bacon in a large frying pan–brown it well so it will crumble easily.

In the same pan, brown the brussels sprouts in the bacon fat. Don’t actually get them brown, but sort of glaze them so they are tender and have acquired some of the bacon drippings.

Put them into a baking dish. Put 3/4 cup of the gruyere and the crumbled bacon on top. Stir gently so the sprouts don’t come apart. Top with the rest of the cheese. Serve hot.

Serves 4, 1/2 cup each.

Carb Count: 6.1 per serving.
