We’re calling this The Best Brussels Sprouts Casserole for good reason. One bite of this cheesy brussels sprouts recipe and you’ll be hooked!

The Best Brussels Sprouts Casserole is a brussel sprout recipe that is baked with bacon and cream

Another thing I never used to be a big fan of is brussels sprouts. Also I’m confused, brussel sprouts casserole or brussels sprouts casserole?

I see it spelled both ways and I’m not sure which one is correct so I’ll go with both versions.

Brussels do sort of get a bad rap as far as vegetables go. Kids don’t usually like them and I’d say maybe 50/50 adults are going to say they like them or hate them.

Used to be a hater. Now I’m a lover.

The trick to making this recipe the best brussel sprouts recipe is all in the way the sprouts are cut. They are sliced into thin pieces, or shaved, so that you’re not biting into a big giant sprout.

Too much sprout that way…

And of course bacon. Because an easy brussel sprouts recipe with bacon is always going to be a home run.

I might not be as big of a fan if they were in my casserole in big old pieces.

But the way these brussel sprouts recipe uses shaved sprouts mixed all together with the bacon and cream…you really can’t beat it.

Next you mix those sprouts together with bacon bits (or crumbled bacon) cream and shredded cheese. Top it off with panko bread crumbs and bake.

    I’ve been looking for a recipe to make me like Brussels sprouts. This sounds good but I am vegetarian. How important is the bacon? Could I substitute something in lieu of the bacon?

  2. I just know IT’S going to be a 5 star dish and i can’t wait to try it. I adore brussel sprouts anyway so this is right up my ally, especially with bacon, cream and cheese !!! Sounds like the perfect side dish or main meal…..maybe even for dessert !! Thanks so much for this recipe, I’ll be back when give made it to let you know what i think 😍

    My mom told us she wants us to steer clear of our traditional side dishes for Thanksgiving this year. This recipe for the win! Can’t wait to make it!

    1. If you have whole milk I’d say that’s ok. It will be a little thinner but if it’s anything less than whole milk I’d use the evaporated milk instead. And the regular cheddar cheese will work just fine!

    Yum! A big hit at family thanksgiving today. I used a 1/2 cup light cream & 1/2 cup sour cream along with cheese & bacon. I put the che se on top, added French fried onions instead of panko.

    I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. Making it again for Christmas Eve dinner. My nephew saud definitely yes bring it!! I doubled the ingredients except the sprouts, used a pound of bacon because it’s bacon and it was fine. I do Keto so I used crushed pork rinds. Funny thing is…I thought I didn’t like Brussels sprouts!!
    Merry Christmas

    I made this casserole and it is certainly delicious. The only thing I changed was how I prepped the Brussel Sprouts. I halved them but steamed them rather than boil. I am not a fan of boiling veggies. The rest of the recipe I followed exactly. My husband siad “this is a keeper”
