bacon + brussels all day

Holla! Burry me in these creamy brussels, bacon, and sauce when I die.

All week I’ve been thinking about making these creamy bacon brussels. ALL WEEK.

Finally, I found a day where I wasn’t at the dentist, meeting with the CPA, or stressing about the major hem job needed, for my bridesmaid dress.

But today, it was just me, brussels, bacon, and cauliflower in the kitchen all day with re-runs of gilmore girls the college years and a warm sunny 70 degree spring day.

The only interruption was a temporary moment of adrenaline when I rushed down to greet my new pretty white smeg fridge. I have been obsessing over for this smexy fridge for years and finally caved.😬

It arrived on a 28” trailer- conveniently, just as I was starting in on pictures of THIS.

….I still haven’t found a way to drag that beast up the hike of our driveway- sans truck.

Anyway, it’s all good, because shoveling spoonfuls of this was well worth it!

Also, dipping individual brussels sprouts in a pot of this magical creamed cauliflower sauce is heaven.

The creaminess from the cauliflower is just right. It keeps the dish ultra smooth and creamy, at the same time delivering a light and healthy feeling in your tummy.

Full of garlicy goodness, cream for the masses, and flavor for life.

You need. And it’s so simple to make!

It takes me like five minutes + my blender and I’m done!

Let the double dipping commence!!

    At first I didn’t like it because I could taste the coconut milk but as I ate the leftovers it got better and better. I will definitely be making it again. I addded a little sausage from trader joes and red pepper flakes. Yum! THANKS, Kaylie!

    Do you make this with fresh cauliflower? I’m wondering how it would turn out using frozen riced cauliflower from Trader Joe’s.

    This was great — thank you for the inspiration! So many things I can do with this amazing sauce! I added a lot of red pepper flakes and thyme to mine.

    I really want to try this but have been turned off by everything I try with coconut milk. It always taste like coconut even when people swear it doesn’t. Is there anything whole30 that you can sub it for?

      Hi Libby, sorry there isn’t, but I have had picky coconut eaters eat this dish and love it saying they couldn’t taste the coconut, so it might be worth a try. Hope that helps. Sorry there isn’t a good paleo/whole30 sub.
