Pan-Roasted Brussels Sprouts (Gluten-Free)

The decadent, borderline sinful combination of bacon and blue cheese is one I use sparingly, but with the season of dinner parties upon us, I can’t think of a better reason to break it out. On another night, try dressing up the sprouts with for toasted walnuts, cranberries, maple syrup and a touch of balsamic; think savory dessert…

1 pound Brussels sprouts, halved or chopped
4-5 strips thick-cut bacon

1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 ounce blue cheese crumbles
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Heat a large skillet over medium-high and cook bacon until crispy. Remove and let drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Reserve less than 1 tablespoon of the fat from the pan and add butter. Sauté the onions for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and Brussels sprouts. Cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sprouts are golden-brown.

Add the bacon and blue cheese and toss together. Season with salt and pepper if desired and serve immediately.

I had always been told to stay away from blue cheese since it is made from bread mold and therefore, has gluten in it. Wondering what your thoughts are.

Still new to this gluten free lifestyle for husband's celiac disease - I thought cheeses such as bleu cheese and Roquefort were off limits because the molds in them were grown on wheat.

No, most blue cheese uses laboratory produced cultures. The ancient form of deriving the cultures involved growing the mold on bread in caves, but that is no longer how it is done in most, if not all blue cheeses.

I was told that Blue Cheese is not gluten free as they grow the mold involved on gluten bread...am I wrong in this??

I usually hate Brussels sprouts, but find that the strong (delicious!) flavor of blue cheese masks their taste. Great recipe, & easier than the one I had that calls for roasting the sprouts. Thanks!

Thank you for taking the time for sharing that info. Don't we have the best disease ever! There's got to be a better way to cut down the scarring. Yes, I've scratched till it bleed. Can't help it. It's like having a bunch of mosquito bites. Yes, only gluten free now. Still have bursts, so probably am being exposed to gluten. Will need to stop dapsone soon. Good luck with your situation.

Best Foods or Hellman's on the East Oast is Gluten free. You can make your own too! Easy! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/mayonnaise-recipe I buy any brand of sugar.

Are you sure you do not have fractures? I fractured two vertebrae two months after my celiac disease diagnosis DOING NOTHING!!!! Turns out I have osteoporosis from untreated celiac disease. ? Consider a bone scan.

Be sure to let us know how it goes! Help keep them in business by writing a review on Find Me Gluten Free! Enjoy! ?

I'm a naturalist -- I don't use drugs, creams, etc. I do, however, scratch** the rash until I'm almost bleeding and then dump isopropyl alcohol in it -- that relieves the itch for quite some time. (Stings at first though.) I get the rashes on my legs. ANYWAY, I have found that a gluten-free diet is the only (or best) approach -- it's certainly the most natural, in my opinion. It took six months before I felt I was cleansed of gluten. I went nine months (or more) without a rash. Then, I mistakenly ate some soup with barley in it. Got the rash. I let it run its course while getting back to & staying on a gluten-free diet. My best advice is just to stay on a gluten-free diet. Be strong, brave. You can do it! ** I should clarify that when my rashes start itching, I can't help but scratch (excessively). I am not suggesting scratching yourself (with or without cause) as a means to an end. Don't scratch if you can.
