Bacon Brussels sprouts au gratin

I like to prepare the bacon ahead of time and then hide it from family members who take a piece here and there. Making the bacon in the oven seems to make less of a mess of the kitchen. Click here to see my bacon making method. Make sure to reserve some of the bacon grease for roasting the Brussels sprouts.

One of this issues I have had with roasting Brussels sprouts is that the time it takes to roast them is different depending on the size. I think the smaller ones are more tender and have more flavor, plus they don’t take as long to cook.

This recipe is versatile in that you can use any type of cheese that you’d like. My favorite cheesemaker is Tillamook and their Sharp White Cheddar is amazing in this dish, but I suspect it would be great with Mild Cheddar or even Pepper Jack!
