Bacon Blue Cheese Brussel Sprouts

1 lbs. Brussel sprouts (organic if you can get them)

1 package of bacon (If you can get something from a butcher that’s thick cut that works best)

4 oz. gorgonzola cheese crumbles (or other mild blue cheese)

2 medium cloves of garlic

1 Shallot (optional but I like the flavor it adds)


  • Cut the stems off the sprouts and peel off the outer layers, when peeled cut in half
  • Mince the garlic
  • Dice the shallot as small as you can get it
  • Chop the bacon into 1/2” bits


  • In a saute pan, cook the bacon until it’s almost done (not crispy) I use a medium low heat to time the cooking of the bacon with the cooking of the sprouts
  • While the bacon is cooking, In a large pot boil the sprouts / garlic / shallots until tender (5 to 10 minutes depending on the amount of sprouts)
  • Once the sprouts are cooked, douse them in cold water to stop them from cooking, drain them well and completely
  • Put the sprouts into the pan with the bacon and stir until heated up and flavored with the bacon grease
  • Remove from heat and stir in the gorgonzola
  • Move the whole mixture to a serving dish
