Christmas Sprouts

Bacon may be the best friend of the Brussels sprout and while I agree they are a wonderful pair...I decided to test drive a new recipe for my beloved sprout and it just so happened to work brilliantly with the colors of the Christmas. I judged my say success with this recipe based on the fact that there weren't any leftovers.

Ingredients

Stalk of Brussels Sprouts
1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries
1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts
1/4 Cup Blue Cheese Crumbles
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Pepper

Instructions

trim the sprouts from the stalk


rinse the sprouts of any dirt and towel dry



set aside your toppings for easy mixing after roasting


slice the sprouts in halves so they brown evenly while roasting


drizzle the sprouts with olive oil, salt & pepper and place in oven at 400 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes


toast the walnuts in a non stick pan for about a minute



remove sprouts from the oven and toss with cranberries, walnuts & blue cheese


voila!


the perfect bite
See you all after the Christmas Holiday!!!
