Cheesy Asiago Brussels Sprouts & Kale Dip

This Cheesy Asiago Brussels Sprouts & Kale Dip is going to become your next fave thing to eat on Thanksgiving.

I know, I’m saying this about brussels sprouts.

But seriously, with all the cheese and bacon, you won’t even notice you’re eating the greens that your mom had to practically shove down your throat when you were a kid.

Personally, I prefer to take the trick-you-into-eating them route. 😉

If you love the classic hot spinach and artichoke dip that you can order off the appetizer menu at practically any restaurant that specializes in pub food, then you’re gonna LOVE this fall-themed version.

I know that brussels sprouts have got a bad rap due to the many times people have steamed the crap out of them or over-roasted them, but when slightly cooked and left with quite a bit of crunch they are by far one of my favourite fall vegetables.

I mean, have you even had them sliced up in a ‘slaw? They’re just mini cabbages you know!!

As always, I tend to have a bit of a problem with leftovers in my house with all the food I’m creating on a regular basis, but this dip flew off the table when reheated and served on two separate occasions. I think I’ve got a winner for my next Thanksgiving dinner with friends, aka “Friendsgiving”.

But even beyond this amazing chance to fall in love with brussels sprouts and fall food again is that I’ll be hosting a SUPER EXCITING Friendsgiving-themed giveaway later this week with Vitamix and some of my favourite Canadian blogger friends.

*Drumroll please*

Cheesy Asiago Brussels Sprouts & Kale Dip

You’ll have a chance to win a Total Nutrition Center Vitamix blender of your own this Thursday, September 22 in celebration of the upcoming holiday.

Just promise me that the first thing you make will be this scrumptious, cheesy Brussels Sprouts & Kale Dip.

It’s a no-brainer, really.

Cheesy Asiago Brussels Sprouts & Kale Dip

Vitamix started off my Friendsgiving preparations early by sending me a blender of my own and I really can’t tell you how awesome it has been to make all of my fall favourites. It literally took just 5-10 seconds for me to blend this dip together – something my own blender would have taken a crazy amount of time and stopping and going to do. I really don’t want to talk up this blender too much, but it certainly lives up to the hype and has made my cooking and blending that much more of a breeze!

And that’s good news because I literally have too many soups and sauces to make in my meal prepping efforts this season!

    Oh daaaang this looks good! I love Brussels sprouts as is, but add 3 types of cheese into the mix and I’m in heaven.

    This sounds delicious! I actually made it through my entire childhood without once being served Brussels sprouts, so the first time I had them as an adult they were roasted with pancetta and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. I was hooked! This sounds like an excellent option too, though, so I’ll have to give it a try.

    I’ve also been coveting Vitamix blenders for ages, so I’ll keep my eye out for your giveaway on Thursday!

      Thank you Caralin!! I can’t believe you never had brussels sprouts as a kid! Honestly, I was more off-put by green beans (and surprisingly still don’t care for them as an adult but they are growing on me). And okay, I gotta try your version of brussels sprouts. That seriously sounds delicious!
