Brussels Sprouts Au Gratin

“Au Gratin” (pronounced oh-GRAH-tan) is a fancy way to describe a baked dish that’s smothered in cheese and breadcrumbs. Instead of breadcrumbs, we use crushed pork rinds, which gives you the same tasty crunch without the carbs.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 8 slices bacon (diced)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 5-6 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups shredded Gruyere cheese (divided)
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese (divided)
  • 2 ounces crushed pork rinds*

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the ends off the Brussels sprouts and cut them in half length-wise. In a large bowl, toss the Brussels sprouts with olive oil, butter, garlic, onion powder, and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Spread the bacon on a sheet pan and bake for 5 minutes. Pour the Brussels sprouts evenly onto the pan and bake until they begin to caramelize and the bacon gets crisp (about 10 to 15 minutes; more time may be required depending on your oven).
  • Remove the pan from the oven and put the Brussels sprouts back into a bowl. Add the heavy cream and half of each cheese (Gruyere and Parmesan).
  • Pour the mixture into a greased/sprayed baking dish and sprinkle the rest of both cheeses and the crushed pork rinds evenly on top.
  • Reduce oven to 375 degrees and bake for about 15-20 minutes until the top is golden brown.
