How To Make brussel sprouts wrapped in bacon

  • 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 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.
