I love these things but I am sure I will get sick of them soon since we have been making them so often. HyVee had sprouts on special so we bought 2 pounds the other day. Get a nice white cheddar and some cream. A little bacon is great but really....there has to be a line somewhere.
If you are using bacon, fry it crisp and crumble it then add the sprouts to the pan and give them a tumble. I like to cut mine in half first.
Cook till just tender then place in a buttered casserole dish, single layer and sprinkle with bacon. Pour in the cream till a little more than half up the sprouts. Cover with a generous amount of shredded white cheddar. Bake till bubbly and golden.
