Make brussels sprouts a fan-favourite at your next family dinner with this Brussels Sprouts Gratin. A combination of brussels sprouts, gruyere and bacon in a creamy sauce, with a hint of thyme, then baked with a crispy topping. This is a perfect side-dish to accompany your turkey or ham dinner.


2 lbs brussels sprouts, cut into halves

3 slices of bacon, chopped into 1 inch pieces

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp flour

1 1/4 cup whole milk

1 tsp fresh thyme

1 cup + 1/2 cup gruyere cheese, shredded

1/2 tsp kosher salt

Pinch pepper

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400F.
  2. Turn your frying pan to medium heat and add chopped bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally until the bacon is crispy and brown, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Remove the bacon from the pan onto a paper towel to drain. Drain the fat from the frying pan, leaving 1 tbsp in the pan.
  4. Add the garlic and brussels sprouts to the pan, sautéeing for 6-8 minutes until the brussels sprouts are a little bit browned but still green.
  5. Add 1 tbsp flour to the pan and stir to combine well, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  6. Then add 1 cup of whole milk, 1 tsp thyme, salt and pepper and turn the heat up to medium-high. Stir for 2-3 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken.
  7. Stir in the bacon and 1 cup cheese until melted.
  8. Take the pan off the heat and pour into the baking dish. Top with 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs and the remaining 1/2 cup shredded gruyere cheese.
  9. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown on top and bubbling.
