Ingredients Related Tips

  • 12-15 large Brussels sprouts
  • 1 c Parmesan Cheese
  • 3/4 c mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/4 c Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/2 c panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp basil, dried
  • 2 tsp thyme, dried
  • 3-5 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2-3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4-6 slice bacon (cooked & crumbled) or as much as you like
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Cut Brussels sprouts length wise & bring a pot of water to a boil. Boil Brussels sprouts cut side down for about 2 minutes remove from water let them cool this will help when coring them out.
  2. Once cooled, core out the middle of the sprout using a pairing knife
  3. Once all are cored, chop up the cored out pieces of brussels sprout very tiny and saute with garlic in fry pan w/olive oil on Med high heat (if making w Bacon I add bacon pieces at this time also)
  4. Saute until brussel sprout is tender & bacon crisp
  5. In a separate bowl Mix the Parmesan, Mozzarella, Bread Crumbs, Basil, Thyme, and Pepper.
  6. Once all mixed, combine cooked Brussels sprout pieces, garlic (bacon) mixture to the bowl of cheese & breadcrumb mixture
  7. Toss and mix all well to create your stuffing. You may need to add more Panko use your judgement.
  8. With a spoon stuff the Brussels Sprout 1/2's w/stuffing mixture
  9. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or so (I like them crispier so I cook a little longer) or put on broil last 2-3 minutes to crisp up the tops. (just watch carefully)
