Think you don’t like brussels sprouts? Think again! This Hot Cheesy Brussels Sprouts Dip recipe will quickly change your mind. Makes a great appetizer for parties and always disappears!

Now I have your attention, don’t I?! 
Roasting brussels sprouts is my favorite way to eat them, but this hot, cheesy dip is a close second. 
If you’re not a huge cabbage fan, don’t shy away from this dip. A quick sauté of the brussels sprouts takes the bite of their “cabbagey” flavor. 
Tip: If you have a mandoline, by all means use it to shred the sprouts for this recipe. I take the shortcut of buying pre-shredded brussels sprouts at the grocery store.

The sautéed and mellowed sprouts are mixed with some of the usual hot and cheesy dip suspects: mayonnaise, sour cream, Greek yogurt, two kinds of cheeses, garlic and a splash of fresh lemon juice to keep the flavor bright. I like to add a liberal dash of crushed red pepper flakes, too, for a bit of heat. The final bake in the oven brings all of the flavors together. 

Can I make this brussels sprouts dip ahead of time? 

Since this dip is almost always made for parties, I love that it can be prepped up to 8 hours ahead of time. Simply keep the unbaked dip covered in the refrigerator until ready to bake. Add a few extra minutes of baking time to ensure the dip heats through.

The sky is the limit here, but I usually serve this recipe with any number of dippers: fresh veggies, pita chips, crostini or toasted bagel chips. 
I’m pretty sure after one gooey, cheesy bite, even naysayers will be singing the praises of brussels sprouts.
