Slow Cooker Brussels Sprouts Gratin

brussels sprouts in green bowlI am back at it with my favorite veggie, the brussels sprout!! Now this may not be quite as low-cal as say this recipe but it you have any doubters in your family this will be the way to have them eating these little green veggies in no time! This was one of those rare times in my house where the veggies went faster than the main dish! What more can you ask for?

I actually found this when I was looking at recipes that were compliant with The Wheat Belly Diet and once I saw it I knew I had to try to convert it to a slow cooker recipe!

    Can you print recipes in black? Mine print out blue and I can barely read them, love Brussels sprouts and this sounds like a great recipe, will make it in near future…….

    1. Hmmm. It should be printing in black. Try switching to black and white in your printer settings and see if that works.

      Let me know how they turn out when you make them!

        1. tried them and they were great. Kind of hard finding almond meal though. but my sister located some. will definitely make again…..

          1. I’m sure another kind of flour could be subbed for the almond meal… but I haven’t tried out any other options yet. Glad you liked them!!

      1. I tried black on my printer – same problem – can hardly read it.
        Also, how can I print the recipes without the image?

        1. Hi Connie! I’m not sure why it’s not printing in black for you. It is set up to do so and prints in black for me. Which browser are you using and I will look into it further? Unfortunately I only have the option of including photo or not, and can’t let each reader choose, which would be so much better 🙁
