Brussels Sprouts and Hamburger Gratin : LCHF
I have to admit when I was growing up I was never a fan of Brussels Sprouts … but tastes do change and now I really enjoy them in my menu plans. If you are not too keen on Brussels Sprouts I'm sure this recipe would work with alternatives such as courgettes (zucchini) or aubergines (egg-plant). The joy of any recipe idea/suggestion is that it can be tweaked to suit the individual taste. We have so many great tasting foods - it's a delicious world out there!
Anyway, on to the recipe... here is what you need for a super delicious combination of hearty Brussels sprouts and cheese-covered ground/minced beef.
Ingredients: Serves Four
15 oz. (450g) ground/minced beef 8 oz. (225g) bacon, diced 15 oz. (450g) Brussels sprouts, cut in halves 4 tbsp. sour cream 2 oz. (50g) butter 5 1⁄3 oz. (150g) shredded/grated cheese 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
Brussels sprouts are rich in many valuable nutrients, and not just to be enjoyed at Christmas. These 'mini cabbages' have a nutty, distinct flavour but they are seen as "The quintessential Christmas dinner veg. Brussels sprouts are thought to have been cultivated in Belgium in the 16th century - hence the name. Although they're related to cabbage - they even look like a miniature, compact version - they have a sweet, nutty flavour, which some people can find bitter. They grow in multiple rows along a thick, central stalk.
