Mustard Pumpkin Seed Brussel Sprouts

This was my side dish for our family Christmas dinner this year and since the invention of this amazing side dish, I have decided I’m not going to wait a year to enjoy it again. So easy to make and just the right tang! The pumpkin seeds with cranberries really set the flavor.

Instructions
  1. Wash and cut the Brussel sprouts in half. Steam them in a large saucepan until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, fry your bacon and retain the grease. Don't forget you might have to add avocado oil if you're using organic bacon. Set it aside on a paper towel to drain.
  3. Place the diced green onions, balsamic vinegar, mustard, garlic, and honey in a small saucepan and simmer with salt and pepper.
  4. Place the steamed Brussel Sprouts in a large serving dish.
  5. Sprinkle the reserved bacon grease over the top of the Brussel sprouts. Give it a good toss.
  6. Add the cranberries and pumpkin seeds. Give it a tood toss.
  7. Add the drained diced bacon and toss it again!
  8. Drizzle the mustard sauce over the Brussel sprouts and incorporate all the goodies with another toss.
  9. I used a bit of parmesan on the top but this is definitely optional. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese if using. This is really not necessary. I served my portion without the cheese and it was AMAZING!
  10. Place under the broiler and cook until the dish is bubbling or the parmesan cheese is melted and bubbling, about 15 minutes. You can also place this dish in the oven at 350 degrees and bake slowly for 30 minutes.
