Why haven’t I eaten Brussels sprouts in forever? Forever being 2 months. I went through a phase where I was eating bacon-fat Brussels every day and loving life. Apparently I over-did them though, until I saw a recipe similar to this one and thought “I NEED to try these.” So paleo creamy bacon Brussels sprouts it was, and what a day.
I’m willing to bet a 6 month supply of coconut oil that this recipe will convert even the most vehement Brussels sprouts haters.
Probably because this rich and creamy bacon-mushroom sauce would even make roadkill taste phenomenal, but at least I love my vegetables. Roasting the Brussels first in the oven adds a nutty flavor that compliments the coconut milk. And of course nothing can beat the sherry and shallots combo, one of my favorites.
Note: Diluted apple cider vinegar can substitute the cooking sherry if need be.
I’m plotting to bring this as a covered dish my next big pot luck. So watch out.
