Delicious Side Dishes: Cheesy Brussels Sprouts Gratin
[Editor's Note: Brussels Sprouts often make an appearance at my holiday table, usually roasted, and often tossed with crumbled bacon. But this recipe, which uses this seasonal vegetable in a rich and creamy preparation, is awfully tempting. It's a whole new spin on sprouts. --Genie]
Cheesy Brussels Sprouts Gratin
Warm melted cheese, gooey-salty-decadent-calorie-laden cheese on top of perfectly fresh and healthy vegetables should be illegal. I think of this often when a gorgeous bowl of green veggies gaze back at me with fresh, vibrant eyes. Instead of reaching for the steamer and ideas of a raw salad, I reach for the rind of parmesan cheese, cream and block of butter.
