🥘Ingredients:

You can use a half teaspoon of powdered garlic if you don’t have fresh garlic on hand.

  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts whole, quartered, halved or shredded

If your Brussels Sprouts are small you can leave them whole. But I like to at least cut them in half so that the cheese can infiltrate their layers.

I really like shredded sprouts but Thom ( the Keto Guy) loves them whole, so we compromise and half or quarter them.

You can skip this ingredient if you don’t love spicy…but red pepper flakes give this dish a kick.

I really love this one because it has built in handles, is GORGEOUS and comes with a lid so you can just pop it in the fridge after dinner.

📋Tips & FAQ’s:

Can I make this dish ahead of time?

Yes, it keeps well for 3-4 days in the fridge. I wouldn’t suggest freezing it because of the mayo and sour cream though. It’ll probably be watery.

Can I make this without the mayo?

Yes, you can just sub in cream cheese or more sour cream in it’s place. Although, the mayo makes this taste special and I encourage you to try it.

I know that it might sound weird to bake with mayonnaise but it’s delicious in this dish.
