Recipe type: Side Dish
Ingredients
  • 450 g Brussels sprouts
  • 60 g bacon
  • ¾ tablespoon unsalted butter for greasing gratin dish
  • ½ cup cream
  • ¾ tablespoon fresh bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter; in bits
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 190°C.
  2. Prepare the Brussels sprouts by cutting a thin slice off the root end of each and then cutting an X in that end so it cooks evenly inside and out.
  3. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, blanch sprouts until they are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, refresh in ice cold water, and drain again. (Do not let the sprouts sit in water for more than a minute.)
  4. Saute bacon until limp, not crisp. Drain and coarsely chop.
  5. Mix the sprouts and bacon together and spread the mixture in a buttered gratin dish.
  6. Pour cream over the sprouts-bacon mixture and dot with bread crumbs and butter.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until hot.
