Tips for making the best AIP Brussels Sprouts Gratin:
- Make sure the bacon is AIP friendly.
- Make sure that the plantain chips are AIP friendly (see link below). Some companies use unhealthy oils.
- Preheat broiler.
- Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp.
- Remove bacon from pan, reserving drippings; crumble.
- Increase heat to medium-high. Add onions to drippings in pan then sauté for 2 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
- Add Brussels sprouts and 1 cup water then bring to a boil. Cover pan loosely with aluminum foil or top and cook for 6-9 minutes or until Brussels sprouts are almost tender.
- While the sprouts are cooking, place plantain chips and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt in a food processor, and process until finely ground. Add cooked, crumbled bacon and maple syrup to plantain crumb mixture.
- When the sprouts are done, uncover and remove from heat. Sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt then toss to combine.
- Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over Brussels sprouts mixture. Broil 3 minutes or until golden and thoroughly heated.
