CooK a Brussels sprouts in creamy cheesy Alfredo sauce


Brussels sprouts in creamy cheesy Alfredo sauce


Hi everyone,today we are cooking up Brussels sprouts in creamy cheesy Alfredo sauce.This is an easy, excellent side dish.Start by preparing two pounds of fresh Brussels sprouts. Cut off the ends then slice them in half and peel off any rough or dry outer leaves.
Now place a deep saute pan or a Dutch oven over medium heat and add six ounces of chopped bacon. Stir that for three to five minutes or until the bacon is browned and the fat has been released.
Transfer the crispy bacon to a separate dish and set it aside,keeping about three tablespoons of oil in the pan. Now add all of your prepared Brussels sprouts and season with half a teaspoon of salt and a quarter teaspoon of black pepper. Cover and cook over medium heat for eight to nine minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook until the Brussels sprouts are tender and lightly browned. Add one large, minced garlic clove and stir for about a minute,until fragrant then add one and a half cups of heavy whipping cream and bring it to a simmer.Add one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice,then stir in 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese.Now season to taste and I added another quarter teaspoon of salt. Then bring it just to a simmer and remove it from the heat. You don't want it to boil or the cheese can clump together. Who else is really excited right now!? Hot, bubbly, creamy! The only thing left to do, is garnish it with that crisp bacon that we made earlier. I'm so excited right now because I get to eat this all!Right, this is such an easy side dish and it is absolutely holiday worthy and my son loves these, which is awesome, because it's Brussels sprouts and even people who don't love Brussels sprouts will love this because - Alfredo. Okay, let's dig in. I am so hungry for this. Oh, look at that! So creamy and then a little bit more bacon because, why not. You can tell I like bacon. Okay, on to the taste test. A big fork full so I look really awkward when I'm chewing. Okay, that's not the goal.
This is so flavorful. The sauce is really easy. You can taste that little hint of lemon and then the Parmesan cheese makesit so creamy. The Brussels sprouts are perfectly tender and I love the crunchy
salty bites of bacon in there. Oh man, it just makes this irresistible. This is creamy, decadent and oh so delicious and it reheats really well, if you're lucky enough to have leftovers.
