How to Make Creamy Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a small baking dish with cooking spray.

Cook the bacon bits in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy and golden brown; remove from the skillet and place on paper towels to drain until needed.

Discard all but 2 teaspoons of bacon grease from the large skillet and add the butter. Once melted, add the brussels sprouts and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 6 minutes until the edges are crisping and lightly charring.

Add the sliced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add the heavy cream and the cornstarch slurry and stir until brussels sprouts are evenly coated in the sauce. Reduce the heat and add the parmesan cheese and stir until mixed thoroughly.

Stir in most of the bacon bits then taste and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with mozzarella cheese and remaining bacon bits.

Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the brussels sprouts are tender.  Side Note: If you want your cheese browned, turn the oven to broil and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, watching carefully. 

Remove from the oven and serve. Enjoy.
