I got this next recipe from Chrissy Teigen’s book Cravings. Brussels sprouts are my favorite and writing this post has seriously got me craving to make this dish again. This classic roasted Brussels sprouts with a twist might be my new go to way of making these crispy greens.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 ½ pounds of Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
15 cloves of garlic, peeled
***I just used about a tablespoon of minced garlic
Salt and pepper
4 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
***I used turkey bacon because I don’t eat red meat
½ cup of chopped toasted walnuts
¼ cup of dried cranberries
¼ cup of crumbled blue cheese
For honey balsamic glaze
1 cup of balsamic vinegar
½ cup of honey
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
In a large bowl toss Brussels sprouts in garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper
Roast Brussels sprouts on baking sheet as you normally would until they are brown and crispy, about 20 mins
In a small saucepan combine ingredients for sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 mins
Cook bacon and set aside
I couldn’t find toasted walnuts in the store so I toasted my own in the same pan I cooked my bacon in
Transfer Brussels sprouts to platter, drizzle with glaze and top with bacon, walnuts, cranberries and blue cheese.
Be prepared for a little taste of heaven and a lot of “mms” and “aahs”
