Brussels Sprouts Gratin


Brussels Sprouts are one of my favorite veggies.  Usually I just eat them tossed with some butter, salt, and pepper.  Today, I made this delicious dish where the Brussels Sprouts were baked in a cheese sauce with pancetta.

This recipe comes from  the Simply Recipes website.  You start by blanching Brussels Sprout halves for a few minutes.  Drain and then toss them in a cheesy sauce flavored with nutmeg and fresh or dried thyme.  Place in an au gratin or casserole dish.  Top the sprouts with the remaining pancetta and cheese.  Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 25 minutes.  Let the dish rest before you serve.

Ready For Oven


The result is a delicious side dish where the Brussels Sprouts are coated in a delicious cheese sauce that compliments the nutty flavor of the sprouts.  The pancetta adds a flavor boost to this already delicious side dish.

  1. A great side dish, Geraldine. Brussels sprouts taste the best when roasted or baked.
