These are a great side dish and a really good way to encourage people to enjoy Brussels sprouts. The Brussels sprouts were tender and the bacon and cheese was delicious. Adding cheese and bacon to anything always makes it good! I can't wait to take this to a party. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Baked Stuffed Brussels Sprouts w/Bacon & Cheeses

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut Brussels sprouts length wise & bring a pot of water to a boil. Boil Brussels sprouts cut side down for about 2 minutes remove from water let them cool this will help when coring them out.
    Once cooled, core out the middle of the sprout using a pairing knife, once all are cored, chop up the cored out pieces of brussel sprout very tiny and saute with garlic in fry pan w/olive oil on Med high heat (if making w Bacon I add bacon pieces at this time also)~ saute until brussel sprout is tender & bacon crisp-
  2. In a separate bowl Mix all other ingredients together~once all mixed~ then combine cooked Brussels sprout pieces, garlic (bacon) mixture to the bowl of cheese & breadcrumb mixture ~ toss and mix all well to create your stuffing.
    You may need to add more Panko use your judgement.
  3. With a spoon stuff the Brussels Sprout 1/2's w/stuffing mixture~ Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or so (I like them crispier so I cook a little longer) or put on broil last 2-3 minutes to crisp up the tops. (just watch carefully)

    Serve & Enjoy (I love watching my family eat Brussels sprouts)
