Baby Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Craisins, Panko and Cheese - Last Minute Vegetable Idea!
I made a mini portion with one of my new 8 inch cast iron pans...
Baby Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Craisins, Panko and Cheese
Preheat oven to 375.
Spray pan with cooking spray. Cut your baby Brussels Sprouts in half vertically. Place the sprouts in the pan mostly face side down, covering the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle on top with Craisins and crunchy bacon pieces (not store bought bacon bits - real bacon!!!)
Top with a mixture of Parmesan, panko, goat cheese and mozzarella (or cheeses of your choice.) Lightly mix it all together in the pan to incorporate ingredients and then top with more cheese. Top with a few tiny dabs of butter if you wish (optional but nice).
Bake in the oven 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and Brussels Sprouts are soft and caramelized.
