Brussels Sprouts with Pear and Blue Cheese are so delicious, even your kids will eat them.

It’s about time I found a Brussels Sprouts recipe I truly truly loved (also…when I first posted this recipe back in 2014 I totally thought it was Brussel Sprouts and not Brussels. I’m called The Cookie Rookie for a reason LOL!). I fought trying them for so long…I was never even forced to eat them as a child! But as I delve more and more into the food blogging world…these healthy little beauties are hard to ignore.  People just rave about them…I had to give them a try.

Of course, if I’m going to try something…I’m going to add cheese.  That’s a given.  Trying Brussels Sprouts for me meant mixing in blue cheese crumbles, freshly sliced pear, and toastedwalnuts.  I couldn’t just try them with salt and pepper.  I needed to dress them up.  I wasn’t disappointed.  This Brussels Sprouts Recipe has quickly become one of our favorite holiday side dishes for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter!

What’s the best way to cook Brussels Sprouts?

For me, I love to cook brussels in a skillet on the stovetop. You can roast them in the oven, fry them, steam them, or even boil them. But for me…they’re just so easy to cook on the stove over medium heat. They’re quick, easy, and SO delicious. I especially love the flavor combination in this simple side dish recipe. The crunch from the toasted walnuts pairs beautifully with the creamy blue cheese and bright fresh pear.

If you thought you didn’t love Brussels Sprouts, this recipe can make you change your mind. Give it a try.

There is so much to love about this vibrant veggie.  For one, this is quite possibly the easiest side dish I have ever made.  I LOVE easy recipes.  It’s kind of my thing.  I couldn’t believe that making these literally meant cutting them in half…and putting them in a pan.  That’s IT.  I mean…really? Well I guess you do have to chop up the pears and toast the walnuts…but those are simple steps as well. If I can make this recipe, you can too!

They’re also healthy.  Its never a bad thing when a delicious and easy recipe also just so happens to be good for you. Brussels Sprouts for the win! Who knew? I have a feeling you’re going to be making this often once you give it a try.
