This Recipe Serves 12


12 Large Brussels sprouts
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 pieces lean turkey bacon, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
3 ounces soft goat cheese
2 tablespoons skim milk
½ teaspoon salt (optional)
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 
  2. Trim the ends of the Brussels sprouts and cut them in half, lengthwise.  Bring a large pot of water to a boil and blanch the sprouts for 2 minutes, drain and set aside.
  3. Using a melon baller or teaspoon measure, core the sprouts, set aside the shells and roughly chop the scooped cores.
  4. Add olive oil to a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add bacon and sauté until almost crisp. Add the chopped sprouts and garlic and sauté for a 3-4 more minutes until the sprouts have softened.
  5. In a bowl, mix together the goat cheese, milk, salt (optional), black pepper and parmesan cheese.  Add the sautéed bacon and sprouts and mix thoroughly.
  6. Divide the filling mixture evenly among each sprout core (about a rounded teaspoon).  Lay sprouts on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until the filled sprouts are a golden brown.  Serve warm.
