Making low carb simple
- Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Fry the bacon and Brussels sprouts in butter for 5-10 minutes until the bacon is cooked and Brussels sprouts are slightly tender. They will cook a little more in the oven.
- Season with salt and pepper and stir in the sour cream. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish.
- In the same pan, fry the ground beef until it starts to brown, season with salt and pepper. Spoon it over the Brussels sprouts. Add cheese and herbs.
- Place on the middle rack and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling. Serve with a dollop of mayo and leafy salad greens of your choice.
Could DD consider listing the nutrition for the individual ingredients that the recipes have been based on? I'm thinking something like a reference list of the figures DD has used when calculating the nutrition of each recipe.
So then we could use those figures versus our local brand to see if its comparable at all? So if the brand we buy is drastically different we are aware and can source a better ingredient? or alter the recipe slightly OR at least be aware the carbs are much higher and account for them.
Would also help when folk are not sure which kind of coconut milk/cream etc a recipe is asking for, and other similarly confusing ingredients, if the numbers are far off it will become apparent something is very wrong.
Also would help make it easier if we need to use a substitution.
YAY!! I am so glad you loved this one!
You may not have done anything wrong. They won't likely brown up anymore but should become tender.
Thank you for your feedback. We have updated the recipe - it should be baked for 15 mins on 425°F (220°C).
Please see the updated recipe, it should be baked for 15 mins on 425°F (220°C) after frying. Hope you enjoy the food!
You can substitute any vegetable you prefer that meets your carbohydrate needs. Here's our substitution guide. Yes, broccoli would work well as a side item.
I used 500 grams pre cut kale. I first baked the bacon then added the butter. I let the butter melt an added the kale. I added a little bit of water and put on the lid to steam the cale on a low fire for 15 min.
It was dilicius. It is a good replacement for my favorit Dutch boerenkool stampot.
If you're British you need to use back bacon (not streaky bacon).
Same thing, different names :-)
This recipe was written using American bacon but Canadian bacon could be used instead.
