For the brussels sprouts

In a large cast iron skillet, over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan, crumble and set aside. Retain the drippings.
To the bacon drippings in the skillet, add butter. Once the butter has melted, add brussels sprouts and minced onion flakes.
Saute, tossing occasionally until the brussels sprouts are crisp-tender and golden brown. Add the crumbled bacon back to the pan and toss with the brussels sprouts.

For the sauce
In a small sauce pan, over medium-high heat, add heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, garlic, sea salt and cracked black pepper.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low. Stirring occasionally, let simmer and thicken.
Pour over top of the roasted brussels sprouts.
Serve and enjoy!
