Gratin of Brussels Sprouts

Gratin of Brussels Sprouts created by DianaEatingRichly

Always look for the smallest Brussels Sprouts you can find. They should be no larger than the tip of your thumb, firm and tightly closed. I hope you enjoy this recipe from Everybody Eats Well in Belgium Cookbook.

    Loved it! I absolutely love sprouts and this came out perfect. I made 1/2 recipe because it was just me and I was experimenting, but I had some great baby sprouts tender and perfect. Not a thing to change other than I should of made the full amount. My oven was 425, but mine can have a tendency to run hot, so I was cautious. I did steam mine sprouts, but did the cold water bath, same end result. I just always steam mine in a saute pan with a small amount of water, just enough to create a steam. Didn't change the outcome at all. Excellent!!, I will certainly make again.
