Cheesy Brussels Sprouts

Cheesy Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. I never liked them growing up but now that I have found more interesting ways to prepare them I’ve grown to love them. The first time I ever used the food processor to prepare brussels sprouts was with the Brussels Sprout Burgers.  It was so successful that I decided to try it again!

Cooking BaconAs with most good keto recipes, this one starts with cooking bacon.  Make sure to use a bacon press to get nice flat bacon.

Food ProcessorFor this version, we’re going to use the food processor with the slicing attachment. Wash Brussels SproutsMake sure to wash the brussels sprouts.  Rather than wash each one, I just put them in a large bowl and fill it with water.

Sliced Brussels SproutsHere are the resulting brussels sprouts.  The effect was really cool!  It pretty much made chips out of them.  Way faster than cutting them by hand …

Shredded CheeseWhile I had the food processor out, I shredded some cheddar cheese.

Finished BaconBy now, the bacon should be done.  Let it drain and save for later.

  1. So, just thought I take a second to share a tidbit I recently myself learned. They’re not brussel sprouts. They’re brussels sprouts, like the city in Belgium.

    I know. Blew my mind too.

  2. Leftover Cheesy Brussels Sprouts make an amazing omelette filling. I used the same shredder disk on the cheese and the sprouts and it worked really well.
