Holy crap, this is a delicious recipe. Shaved Brussels sprouts and cheese? Two of my favorite foods baked together in one dish? Heaven. It’s also the simplest recipe ever. Please make it!



  • 10 ounces shaved Brussels sprouts
  • 2 leeks (or half a small onion), sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Breadcrumbs



Sautee Brussels sprouts and leeks with garlic and olive oil until bright green, but not soggy. Transfer to a large bowl.


In a separate pot, combine Gruyere, cheddar, milk, butter, mustard, salt, and pepper. Cook on medium heat and stir until cheese is completely melted.

Then, pour cheese sauce onto Brussels sprouts + leeks and mix well. Pour cheesy Brussels sprouts + leeks into a small baking pan. Top with breadcrumbs.

Bake on 400 degrees F for 20 minutes until top starts to lightly brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
