I’m not going to lie; I adore Brussels Sprouts. My favourite way to eat them is a big bowl of new season sprouts, steamed and served with butter and salt. Perfect.

However, I totally understand that not everyone feels that way about these delicious little flavour bombs.

This casserole wraps your sprouts in a gentle blanket of creamy, cheesy goodness and is finished off with crispy, crunchy pancetta pieces. Sounds like the perfect low-carb side for this year's Thanksgiving table!

Keep a container of the crisped up pancetta or bacon in the fridge for sprinkling over eggs, avocados or on salads. Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 6 servings)

  • 1 kg fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved (2.2 lbs)
  • 2 tbsp ghee or butter (30 ml)
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (120 ml/ 4 fl oz)
  • 1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese such as Gruyere or similar melty cheese (60 g/ 2.1 oz)
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese (57 g/ 2 oz)
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese (60 g/ 2.1 oz)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6 slices of pancetta or bacon, crisped and crumbled (90 g/ 3.2 oz)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional: fresh parsley, to taste


  1. To crisp your pancetta, lay the strips out on an oven rack and cook at 180 °C/ 355 °F (fan assisted), or 200 °C/ 400 °F (conventional), for 10 minutes until crispy. They will crisp further as they cool, so don’t overcook them.
  2. Increase the heat to 190 °C/ 375 °F (fan assisted), or 210 °C/ 410 °F (conventional). Low-Carb Brussels Sprouts Casserole

  5. Add the cream mixture and toss to combine. (You may need to add 2 tablespoons of water so that the sprouts can soften without getting too dry.) Add half of the pancetta and stir through the casserole.
  6. Bake for a further 15 minutes, until the cheese has browned and the sprouts are softened.

Set the heat at 180 then reduce it to 190?
I had to add water to the pan to get the sprouts to soften.

Thank you for spotting that! I'll make sure to fix this typo 😊

Making this right now and it smells delicious! I didn’t see where to add the grated cheeses, so I added them with the pancetta. Recipe might need an edit for this. Thanks!

Hello again,
Found a Second mistake, the cheese not mentioned in the receipe, only in the ingredients list.

I think there are missing items in the ingredients list such as cream cheese and things like that

Hi Roman, I can see cream cheese in the list of ingredients and mentioned in step 3 - is that the ingredient you meant? Please let me know, maybe I'm missing something!
