A Thanksgiving Treat

Happy Thanksgiving! 

Here's a simple recipe that tastes like you've been slaving over a hot stove for hours.  Don't like Brussels sprouts? You probably will after you taste these!  One taster called these "hot little balls of creamy yumminess"... who wouldn't love veggies when they taste like that?


Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Preheat oven to 425F.  Oil a 9x13 baking dish. 

Toss together:

2 lb Brussels sprouts, halved
2 Tbsp butter, melted
3/4 tsp salt
Pepper, to taste

Spread evenly in the baking dish (or to save on washing, mix them in the baking dish).
Bake 15 minutes, stir, and cook 15 minutes more.  They should now be tender and browning in spots.

Pour over the Brussels sprouts:

1 cup heavy cream

Bake 10 minutes.

While this bakes, mix together in a small bowl:

1 cup Panko
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup grated Gruyere cheese

Spread the mix over the Brussels sprouts.
Set the oven to broil (500 F)
Cook for about 3 minutes, until the topping is deep golden brown.  Watch it carefully, it can go from undercooked to burnt very quickly!

Serve warm. 

This recipe serves 5 as a hearty lunch, or 8 as a side.
