Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Ingredients

12
brussel sprouts
4 oz
cracker barrel cracked black pepper cheese, or any cheese you wish to use.
1 pt
bacon
6
green onions or shallots
1 clove
garlic
2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Par boil brussel sprouts for 5 minutes.
Remove and let cool so you can handle them.
2
Use knife to split brussel sprouts down the middle starting at the hard stem part to half them.
Use a paring knife to take out the middle of the brussel sprout. Save what you remove..you will use it later.
3
Fry bacon just enough to render it to pliable ..remove and let cool. I always fry the bacon while I am cutting up my Brussel sprouts.
4
Cut green onions into small pieces about 1/8 inch..I use my kitchen scissors for this, works quite well.
5
In a small nonstick skillet saute the insides of your sprouts and green onions in bacon grease until tender.
6
After the sprouts and onions are tender and cooled down a bit.. mix the cheese into the frying pan with them..It will bind everything together so its easier to stuff sprouts.
7
Use a small spoon to fill each sprout..cut bacon in half and wrap each sprout.
