Creamy garlic parmesan Brussels sprouts with bacon are a delicious and indulgent side dish that combines the earthy flavors of Brussels sprouts with creamy garlic sauce, savory bacon, and tangy Parmesan cheese. Here’s a simple recipe for you to try:


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Cook the Bacon: In a large skillet or pan over medium heat, cook the chopped bacon until crispy. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess grease. Leave about 1 tablespoon of bacon fat in the pan.
  2. Cook the Brussels Sprouts: In the same skillet with the bacon fat, add the halved Brussels sprouts in a single layer, and cut side down. Cook for about 5-6 minutes until they are golden brown and slightly crispy. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  3. Prepare the Creamy Garlic Parmesan Sauce: Push the Brussels sprouts to one side of the skillet and add the butter to the space. Once melted, add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  4. Combine and Simmer: Pour in the heavy cream, stirring to combine with the garlic and butter. Let the mixture come to a gentle simmer.
  5. Add Cheese and Seasoning: Gradually sprinkle in the grated Parmesan cheese, stirring continuously until the sauce is smooth and the cheese is melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Finish and Serve: Add the cooked bacon back into the skillet with the creamy sauce and Brussels sprouts. Stir everything together until well coated in the sauce.
  7. Garnish and Serve: Garnish the creamy garlic parmesan Brussels sprouts with chopped fresh parsley for a pop of color and freshness (optional). Serve hot as a delicious side dish alongside your favorite main course.

Enjoy the creamy, savory, and satisfying flavors of these Brussels sprouts enhanced with garlic, Parmesan cheese, and crispy bacon. It’s a perfect dish for special occasions or any time you want to elevate your meal! Adjust the seasoning and cheese amount according to your taste preferences.
