It was a hit and what wasn't eaten was taken home by several guests. I was chuffed.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Here is the recipe....


https://www.kqed.org/bayareabites/10...ts-and-gruyere

Creamy Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Gratin
Ingredients:
  • 2 lbs small, tender Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 4 oz thick sliced bacon, chopped
  • 3 large shallots, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 packed cup shredded Gruyere cheese (about 6 oz)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
    • Preheat the oven to 400F.
    • Bring a large saucepan half filled with salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Blanch the sprouts until just tender, 3 to 7 minutes (depends on the freshness and size of the sprouts). Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking.
    • In a large heatproof frying pan over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to paper towels and add the shallots. Fry until tender, stirring, about 5 minutes.
    • Drain off all but 2 tbsp fat and add the bacon and butter to the pan (if you don’t have 2 tbsp bacon fat, use 2 tbsp butter).
o Sprinkle the flour over the butter and cook, stirring with a whisk, until smooth. Slowly add the chicken broth, then the milk, while whisking, until thickened and smooth. Add 1/2 cup of the cheese and stir until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
o Add the Brussels sprouts to the sauce and stir to combine. Spread into an even later. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
o Bake until bubbly and golden brown, about 30 minutes. (If you like, pop it under the broiler to brown the top a bit more.) Let sit for about 10 minutes before serving.

I will definitely make half of this recipe, in a cast iron skillet.

Looks and sounds amazing!

I bought a fresh stalk of brussels sprouts and used most of them in this dish. I drained in a colander after blanching and dried them as much as I could with a terry cloth tea towel to get as much water out as I could. The bacon, onions, and one chopped clove of garlic I sautéed in a cast iron chicken frier, added the sauce ingredients, then poured over the sprouts in the baking dish. I only had five ounces of gruyere so added three slice of swiss cheese.

I told the gal at Sterino's about this recipe when I bought my sprout tree and stopped by today to tell them how good the sprouts were - she made it on my say so and said her's were gone, gone, gone, as well.

I'll buy more sprout s next week. They are selling the trees for 2 for $4. I'll blanch some for freezing.
