Gratin recipes are one of the most popular recipes online -- and for a reason. They're velvety-rich, with both heavy cream and cheese used in most recipes, and they deliver just as much in tender vegetables as they do in a crunchy top that gives them the needed texture. But with potato gratin being at the top of the list -- far above any other -- it can be difficult to enjoy these dishes when trying to follow a low-carb diet. But, as in the recipe that follows, you can have your gratin without any of the guilt.
Brussels sprouts take over the job of the potatoes here, and they do it perfectly. They're hearty and become just as soft as potatoes when roasted. And, because they only need to be halved, you save valuable time and effort. Instead of bread crumbs, bacon sits on top of this dish, which is a delicious substitute for texture and goes oh so well with Brussels sprouts, too!
