Paleo Creamy Bacon Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
  • 2 tbsp grass-fed butter, melted 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 slices of bacon, chopped up
  • 6 crimini mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ cup full fat coconut milk
  • ¼ cup cooking sherry

Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the Brussels, butter, and salt & pepper in a bowl. Layer a baking sheet with tin foil and then spread out the Brussels evenly on it. Bake for 15 minutes, tossing once halfway through.

    1. Meanwhile… Over medium-high heat, cook the bacon in a deep skillet until slightly browned (about 7 minutes).

  1. Reduce the heat to medium and then throw in the mushrooms and shallots. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 5 minutes until the shallots are translucent, stirring occasionally. Throw in the garlic and stir, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the coconut milk and cooking sherry to the skillet, mixing thoroughly. Bring to a boil and simmer until reduced by half. Constantly stir.
  3. When the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, taste that sh*t and tell me you’re not in love. I mean, seriously.Stir in the Brussels to evenly coat them in the sauce, and consume.
