1/1 Photo of Brussels Sprouts Gratin
Since Brussels sprouts are considered by some a traditional Thanksgiving side dish, I decided to give this one I saw on prepared on Cookworks (FoodTV). Even though it is a pretty rich side dish, everyone loved the flavor of the sauce (besides it is a feast day!).
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 lbs Brussels sprouts
- 4 ounces prosciutto, julienned
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup half-and-half
- 1/4 cup sherry wine
- 1 cup finely grated parmesan cheese, plus
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1Preheat oven to 350°F.
- 2To roast garlic: Cut off the papery tip of the garlic head, exposing the top of each garlic clove. Brush the exposed cloves with olive oil. Place the garlic, root side down, on the center of a piece of aluminum foil. Bundle the garlic with the foil, leaving a small vent on top. Roast the garlic for 45 minutes or until the cloves turn beige and are fork tender. Remove from the oven and let stand until cool enough to handle. Squeeze the garlic head upside down over a small bowl and the cloves will pop out. Refrigerate for up to 1 week.
- 3Peel off any damaged outer layers of Brussels sprouts. Trim the stem to make it flush. Quarter each sprout and score the stem on each quarter with a 1/4-inch-deep "X.".
- 4Saute the prosciutto in the butter over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and Brussels sprouts and stir continuously for 2 to 3 minutes.
- 5Add the flour and continue stirring for 2 minutes.
- 6Add the cream, half-and-half, and sherry. Bring the liquid to a simmer, then reduce the heat and continue simmering for 7 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by 1/3.
- 7Stir in the 1 cup of Parmesan, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
- 8Transfer to an ovenproof casserole dish. Cover with remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan (I used only 1/4 cup as this seemed adequate). Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes. Serve immediately.
