Every Friday we spotlight low-carb recipes you might want to try and this week it's all about Low-Carb Brussels Sprouts for a Thanksgiving Side Dish. And these brussels sprouts recipes would be great for Christmas dinner as well! Use the Recipes-by-Diet-Type Index to find more recipes like these.
I am fully aware of the fact that some people don't like brussels sprouts, but if you do happen to be one of those brussels sprouts avoiders I hope at least one of these Low-Carb Brussels Sprouts for a Thanksgiving Side Dish will look good enough to entice you to try it. I promise you, brussels sprouts can be delicious when they're prepared well. I am partial to roasted brussels sprouts myself, but other high-heat methods like pan frying and sauteing can also produce good results.
And of course there is cheese. The combination of brussels sprouts + cheese is pretty epic, which is why cheese is included in everyone of these low-carb recipes with brussels sprouts. And personally I feel that a holiday like Thanksgiving is a time when you shouldn't apologize for a dish that might be more indulgent than usual, do you agree?
I didn't always have the appreciation for Brussels Sprouts that I do now, and one of these recipes is the very first brussels sprouts recipe to appear on Kalyn's Kitchen and it's the recipe that turned me into a brussels sprouts lover, so don't miss that one. And if you're a brussels sprouts fan like I am, look after the photos for even more ideas with brussels sprouts!

There's going to be a recurring theme here of brussels sprouts + cheese, starting with these Baked Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan Cheese from White on Rice Couple. And yum!
I'd say "Yes, please" to these Skillet Roasted Bacon Brussels Sprouts with Garlic Parmesan Cream Sauce from Peace Love and Low Carb. And yes, that's a lot of indulgent ingredients in the same recipe, but remember these are holiday dishes!
My friend Lydia from The Perfect Pantry is not the biggest brussels sprouts fan, but her husband Ted swooned over this Warm Brussels Sprouts, Almond, and Goat Cheese Salad with Maple Mustard Dressing. And it definitely sounds good to me.
Garlic Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts from Primavera Kitchen sounds amazing, and Olivia says this recipe is also super easy!
Please don't make me do it, but if I ever had to pick just one brussels sprouts recipe it would have to be this Easy Brussels Sprouts Gratin with Swiss and Parmesan from Kalyn's Kitchen. If you like brussels sprouts, this is a MUST-TRY!
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic, Parmesan, and Pine Nuts was the very first brussels sprouts recipe to ever appear on Kalyn's Kitchen (back in 2007!) and thousands and thousands of people have made this for Thanksgiving. It's even converted a few brussels sprouts avoiders to fans. For years I was scared to change out the original photo; check it out and see which you like best!
