Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Everyone will love Brussels sprouts after they take a bite of this yummy recipe. The Gruyere cheese sauce is super creamy and tangy. Bacon adds a wonderful crunch and a bit of smokiness. Rich and delicious, this is a great holiday side dish. But, it's so good you're not going to just want to have it at the holidays.

2 medium
shallots, sliced
1 Tbsp
butter
2 Tbsp
