This creamy brussels sprouts dish is the ultimate cozy side dish to make on repeat. It is super flavorful and there is really nothing not to crave about bacon, cheese and brussels sprouts together.

We love making this to have with roasted chicken, for Thanksgiving, or any family-style meal especially. And it is ready in just 30 minutes and doesn’t require a ton of prep work or effort to make too. Making this a great holiday dish to prep for dinner and serve. And guests absolutely love it!

Tip: make the bacon in the oven then add it to a paper towel lined- plate to absorb any of the excess oil/fat. Plus you can use turkey or pork bacon for this

What ingredients you need to make creamy brussels sprouts bake:

  • Bacon – cooked and diced. I usually cook mine in the oven and you can use turkey bacon or pork bacon for this
  • Olive oil or avocado oil – either oil works for this recipe. You can also use butter if you prefer to make it creamier too
  • Shallots – I love adding shallots into this dish instead of garlic and onion – shallots and brussels sprouts go so well together
  • Brussels sprouts – washed and cut in halves. I like to cut the bottom rim off as well
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • Heavy cream or any milk of choice – the heavy cream makes it creamier but another milk or a non-dairy milk also works well and lightens it up a bit
  • Shredded sharp white cheddar – I usually buy a block and shred it since there are less additives in the cheese then
  • Shredded Gruyère – this cheese gives the dish that dreamy cheese pull we all know and crave

How to make creamed brussels sprouts bake:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  2. Warm a large cast iron skillet (12-15 inches) with oil and add the shallots and brussels sprouts, salt and pepper and cover and cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally
  3. Remove from heat and pour in heavy cream or milk, then top with both cheeses and bacon
  4. Bake in oven for 12 to 15 minutes (if your cheese isn’t golden, switch oven to broil and broil 1 minute)
  5. Serve while warm!

Tips for success:

  • When I’m preparing this side dish for a dinner, I cut the brussels sprouts ahead of time then keep them in the fridge until we are going to cook them!
  • If you don’t have a cast iron skillet – you can transfer the mixture to a baking dish after cooking in a skillet
  • If you want to lighten up the recipe a bit, sub heavy cream for milk and you can use turkey bacon instead of pork bacon
  • When you reheat this dish, cover it in foil and warm in oven at 350 degrees F or microwave it if you want
