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.

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.
