The first speedy recipe in my series of four sprout side dishes – perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas and whenever I spot sprouts at the shop!

The sprouts are simply roasted with a little butter, then topped with cream and lots of cheese and baked again until browned and bubbling. No need to get a pan dirty whisking up white sauce!
