Creamy Garlic Brussels Sprouts

Check out this side dish! I was not always a big lover of brussels sprouts, but it turns out, I just needed to add cheese! This recipe is one that I came up with when I needed to add greens to my diet and all I had on hand were brussels sprouts, so I did my best to create something worth eating. Now I make this recipe at least once a week with a simple chicken entrée.

Check out my personal recipe:

Creamy Garlic Brussels Sprouts

12 oz bag or 20 halved fresh Brussels Sprouts (Can also use frozen, just steam first)
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
½ cup water
2 oz white wine
¼ cup heavy cream
2 tbsp butter
½ cup grated parmesan
3 tbsp minced garlic
¼ cup shredded mozzarella


  • Pour olive oil in a skillet and heat on medium.
  • Add in brussels sprouts and stir, coating each one in olive oil. Heat and stir occasionally until browned slightly.
  • Add water and cover for 5 minutes
  • Pour in wine and mix gently, then cover for 2-3 minutes until wine is mostly absorbed.
  • Add cream and butter stirring constantly until thickened and to make sure they do not stick to the skillet.
  • Sprinkle in parmesan and garlic as you stir to keep from sticking, turn off heat once parmesan and garlic are fully integrated.
  • Pour mixture into baking dish and set broiler on high.
  • Top with mozzarella, evenly
  • Broil for 3-4 minutes or until mozzarella has browned.
  • Enjoy!
