Brussels sprouts – a delicious idea:
Why not make a change to your brussels sprouts this year?
Simply follow our instructions below for a fabulous twist on a Christmas classic:
1 pound of small brussels sprouts, rinsed
2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1/4 pound of thinly sliced prosciutto ham
1 pinch of coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Next you slice the brussels sprouts in half, lengthwise. Don’t trim the ends as they will hold together better with them. Toss the sprouts on a rimmed baking sheet with the oil and a good generous sprinkle of the salt and pepper. Bake for 40 minutes total, but start to check then around the 25 minute mark, toss them around too. In the meantime you can chop up your ham into small chunks. Heat a frying pan over medium – high heat and add the prosciutto & sauce for about 5 minutes until they are nice and crispy. Then set the ham to one side. Next, remove the sprouts from the oven and let them cool for around 5 minutes or until they are cool enough to handle. using toothpicks slide on half of a sprout followed by a slice or 3 of the ham, then bookend with the other sprout half. Continue until you have around 32 mini skewers. Arrange them on a platter and serve immediately. There we have it, a lovely tasty twist on your Christmas vegetables. The classic brussels sprout served with a twist. Brilliant!
