THE RECIPE: ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH BACON, SHALLOTS AND PARMESAN CREAM

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: 

3 lbs fresh brussels sprouts (on the stalk if available)

6 slices thick cut bacon

4 medium shallots sliced

1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil

2 cups heavy cream

a few fresh sprigs of rosemary

4 garlic gloves

1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

sliced fresh chives for garnish

 kosher salt

fresh ground pepper

 

HOW TO MAKE IT:

Preheat oven to 425°. Remove and discard bottoms and discolored leaves from brussels sprouts, then cut into halves. Toss with olive oil, shallots, and kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste. Place in a single layer on baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until golden and fully tender, stirring halfway through. 

In large cast iron skillet, over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove from the pan, crumble, and set aside. 

Combine heavy cream, rosemary, and garlic in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, about 15 or 20 minutes or until reduced down to around 1 cup. Discard rosemary and garlic. Stir in grated parmesan cheese. Drizzle over brussels sprouts. Top with more grated parmesan cheese, bacon, chives, and black pepper if desire. Serve immediately.
