This 4-ingredient Creamy Braised Brussels Sprouts recipe is my favourite keto vegetable side dish! Cooking the sprouts in heavy cream with a pinch of salt and nutmeg converts Brussels sprout haters into lovers! Add some shredded mozzarella and a little Parmesan cheese for the most amazing recipe that will quickly become addicting.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 10 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 lbs small Brussels Sprouts
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pinch nutmeg
  • Optional - 1/2 cup freshly shredded mozzarella and 1/4 cup shelf-stable grated Parmesan


  1. Prepare the Brussels sprouts by trimming off their woody ends.
  2. In a large saute pan, bring the sprouts, cream, and salt to boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Lower heat, cover, and simmer (shaking pan once or twice to redistribute sprouts) until knife tip inserted into a brussels sprout center meets no resistance, 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Add in the cheese, if using and stir until melted.
  5. Season with nutmeg and pepper and serve
