Wow, what an amazing Christmas! Our grandson was here – he’s almost 2 so it was really his first Christmas where he is starting to understand Santa and the tree, lights, ceremony, etc. What a gas! Fuzz and I really enjoyed our time with the kids, Col and baby. It was one of the best holidays ever.
Now on to the important stuff! Food! I’ve posted previously about brussel sprouts. Well, I got a little creative and whipped up a very easy recipe.
- 1 pkg of sprouts (got this from Costco, it was at least a lb)
- prosciutto, one package (you can alter this, really, if you like it, put more in, if not, put less)
- Feta – again, as much or as little. I used 1/4 of a cup, but would have loved more
- Grape seed oil or olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350.
Prep: I cut the bottom of the sprout off, then cut in half, rinsed off, put in big bowl, set aside. Crisped the prosciutto in a pan (similar to bacon, will take no time at all on medium heat. When it starts to “shrivel” turn over, then take off heat and put on plate to cool. While this is cooling, ‘fork’ off some feta (will make crumbles). Go back to the prosciutto, chop fine (see my knife pic, love this knife and made it very easy to chop…just something in my arsenal).
Take the grape seed oil and drizzle over the sprouts. You don’t need a ton here, just enough to coat. I take my hands and make sure the sprouts are evenly covered. Whipped in some salt and freshly ground black pepper, and place in one layer on lined cookie sheet. Cook at 350 for 25 minutes. Check with fork for tenderness.
When BS are finished, take out, put in serving bowl and sprinkle feta and prosciutto on top. When people take a spoonful, they will mix the ingredients all together. Viola!
