Cheesy Brussels Sprout

I bet even the Brussels Sprout haters will love this recipe! No one can resist this creamy, cheesy and ultra silky sauce that smothers the soft, tender Brussels Sprout. It was a hit on our family’s dinner table.

Thanksgiving is coming up and this recipe makes the perfect side dish to accompany your turkey. It’s easy to make and the taste is top notch. I don’t need a special occasion to make this recipe. Anytime of year is good in my books.

The only thing I wish is that Brussels Sprout were a little bit cheaper. I paid almost $7 at the grocery store to buy them. They aren’t the most affordable vegetable in the store, but they are one of the most delicious, in my opinion.

It’s crazy to think I used to despise them. I really was missing out! I’m glad I changed my ways and became more adventurous when it comes to veggies.
