Roasted brussels sprouts in a creamy sauce topped with melted cheese and crispy bacon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon and set on a paper towel-lined plate.
In the same skillet (may leave bacon grease in the pan or remove it), melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 4 minutes, stirring often. Add brussels sprouts and cook for 8-10 minutes. If using garlic, add it now. Sprinkle with salt.
Remove from heat. If using a baking dish, transfer brussels sprouts to the dish. If using the ovenproof skillet, leave them in the pan. Add heavy cream and toss with brussels sprouts. Top with sharp cheddar cheese.
Cover and let bake for 13-15 minutes. Remove foil and let cook for 2-4 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly and brussels sprouts are cooked to your desired doneness.
Top with crumbled crispy bacon on top.
