Cheesy Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Brussels Sprouts made more delicious with a creamy cheese sauce and bacon!

Cheesy Brussels Sprouts with Bacon | #side #recipe

Side dishes can be a little boring.  I put so much focus on the main dish that sides are often an afterthought.  Both of my boys happen to love salads so that’s what I frequently serve with dinner.  I’ve been trying to introduce new vegetables to them each week and also continually offering those veggies that they don’t L.O.V.E. at first bite.  Brussels sprouts are definitely one of those veggies.   I think you either love them or hate them.  I happen to really love them, my husband – not so much.  I think serving up Brussels sprouts with creamy cheese sauce and topping them with bacon is a great way to introduce Brussels sprouts and man are they good!

    I absolutely love Mom On Time Out ! I get happy when I see an email from you in In my inbox.. though I may not use your recipe or creation at that moment I do keep it in mind for next time…. Thank you!

    PS I subscribed my daughter to your email… she is raising a 5 year old, my grandson AJ…. she loves to cook as well so I know Holly will love your ideas. Between AJ who is particular in what he eats and her bf who is a finicky eater she definitely has her hands full while working full time.
