Tip!

If you don't like Brussels sprouts, you can use broccoli and cauliflower.

    Please please please sort out the ML to Gram conversion on the recipes! the ratio is 1 to 1 yet most of the things I look at are wrong!

    It really affects the outcome of the recipes!

    I just love this dish! I substitute the Parmesan with freshly grated Asiago and I use Ghost pepper bacon. The Ghost pepper bacon makes the dish super spicy and a potluck favourite.

    Thanks.

    That depends on the total volume of your finished dish and how much it cooks down. This recipe makes 4 servings as written.
