Hey there fellow brussel sprouts lovers! Prepare yourself to fall in love with this epic vegetable side dish! Bonus: it’s LOW CARB!
It’s a favorite in our house, from kids to adults. Lyla can be hard to get to eat vegetables, but even she loves these baked brussel sprouts.
They are baked in a creamy sauce made with garlic, italian seasoning, heavy cream and two types of cheeses.
While that sounds like it might be a little bit of work, it is not!
This amazing brussel sprouts recipe only takes 5 minutes of work. #MomWin
All you have to do is stir all the ingredients together and dump it into a casserole dish (or cast iron skillet) and bake it! SO EASY!
This Creamy Baked Brussels Sprouts Recipe was a very happy accident that happened on a lazy Wednesday night.
I had previously made a roasted brussels sprouts gratin a few times and loved it.
However, it was a lot of work to make and was really high in carbs. I had to precook the brussels and make a roux.
Jorge and I try to eat low carb most days and that was not working out for us as a weekly side dish!
SO, I tossed together some brussel sprouts, heavy cream, fresh garlic, seasonings and lots of cheese.
I threw it into my cast iron skillet and stuck it in the oven and let it bake.
I was hoping for the best and preparing myself for a potentially very bad result.
I even warned Jorge we might not have a vegetable that night! Ha!
But as it baked, I saw the top turning a perfect brown on the edges and the bubbling of the cheesy sauce.
And the smell, oh man, it smelled so dang good. We were both standing over it waiting for it to cool enough for us to try a bite!
To say it was good would be the ultimate understatement. It was DIVINE.
Even the girls gobbled it up, which was shocking! They hate baked brussel sprouts normally!
The sauce reminded me of an alfredo sauce, but with so much more flavor.
And the best part? It only took about 5 minutes of effort on my part. Who wouldn’t love that?
Easy low carb vegetable side dish that tastes amazing and takes almost no work? YES, PLEASE!
For the cheeses, I use a combination of mozzarella and parmesan. These two cheeses combine to be both creamy AND flavorful.
Plus, we add a very healthy helping of heavy cream and fresh minced garlic.
If you happen to not be low carb, you can swap the heavy cream for half and half with no issues.Check out the video to see just how easy this recipe really is to make. I promise the prep work only takes 5 minutes!
