Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and place rack at the highest level.
  2. Toss Brussels sprouts with melted butter, bacon, salt and pepper.
  3. *My suggestion, spray selected baking dish with non stick spray, for easier cleanup.
  4. Arrange in a shallow baking dish just large enough for a generous single layer with a little overlap (sprouts will shrink some during cooking). Roast for 25 minutes, stirring 2 or 3 times during cooking.
  5. Meanwhile: While sprouts are roasting, in a medium bowl mix together all of the topping ingredients. Set aside.
  6. When sprouts are ready (after 25 mins), toss with cream.
  7. Return to the original baking dish and arrange in a single layer.
  8. Sprinkle the topping evenly over all.
  9. Return to oven and roast until gratin is bubbling and breadcrumbs are golden brown, 20-25 minutes.
  10. Let rest 15 minutes before serving.
