Brussel Sprouts, Shallots, Bacon and Manchego Cheese Side

This Brussel sprout side is a healthy and filling dish with amazing flavors developed from cooking the veggies in light butter and wine and adding in just enough bacon and cheese to make you almost forget you are actually eating Brussel sprouts ;)

If you ever find yourself with 7 bags worth of Brussel sprouts, this would be a great recipe to make.

Oh, what’s that? I’m the only person who ever randomly has seven bags of Brussel sprouts in her fridge at one time? Dang it.  I knew my love for Brussel sprouts was just a tad bit abnormal…

Heh. Ok, I really do loveeeeee Brussel sprouts and I did have 7 bags of them at once, but it happened by accident I PROMISE. Late this summer when I went away on vacation with my boyfriend’s family I planned to cook dinner one night and my recipe included Brussel sprouts.  There were a good amount of people staying at the house during vacation so I made sure to stock up at Wegmans at home before I left for vacation since you can buy bags of shaved Brussel sprouts pretty cheap there.  Great plan…until I left for vacation and left all four bags of Brussel sprouts sitting in my fridge in PA…very very far away from Chincoteague Virginia.  Dang it! Luckily I remembered I forgot them on the ride down so when we stopped at the grocery store before heading into the island for the week I bought three more bags as replacement.  Then, long story short, vacation was cut short early due to a medical situation with a family member and so I never had a chance to cook my dinner for everyone before leaving so three large bags of Brussel sprouts came right back home to PA with me. And then I just hadddd to eat all the Brussel sprouts before they went bad which wouldn’t seem too bad since I love them so much but guys…seven bags is really a lot of sprouts hahaha.

Luckily this side dish uses a bunch of brussels but also includes some other fabulous players to switch up the flavor profile like WINE and BACON and CHEESE!  Love ‘um or hate ‘um, these little veggies make a great healthy side and even if you are skeptical about trying them still this is a great recipe to start with. Do it for the bacon guys, do it for the bacon :)   
Here’s how you make it!
