DIRECTIONS

  • Microwave brussels sprouts in a covered dish on high, with two tablespoons of water, for 4-5 minutes or until just fork-tender. Make sure steam can vent during cooking.
  • Remove from microwave, drain and set aside.
  • In large skillet, fry bacon until crisp. Place on paper towel; drain most of the fat from pan.
  • Place walnuts in pan and toast over high heat for about 5 minutes or until they start to brown.
  • Add sliced shallot and cook, turning heat down to medium, stirring frequently, until translucent.
  • Add brussels sprouts; stir to coat with pan drippings. Add salt and pepper to taste at this time.
  • Add whipping cream and bleu cheese; stir all ingredients together until cheese is mostly melted and sprouts are well covered.
  • Simmer over low heat for another five to ten minutes, until cream is reduced and starts to thicken.
  • Pour all into serving bowl and crumble bacon over all to garnish. Be sure to use a scraper to get all that rich sauce.
  • Bring to table and accept compliments.
