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!
The 3 Cheese Sprout Gratin Recipe:
- 500 g sprouts
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 50 g Mozzarella cheese, grated (use a vegetarian version if required)
- 50 g Parmesan cheese, grated (use a vegetarian version if required)
- 100 g Mature/strong Cheddar cheese, grated (use a vegetarian version if required)
- 200 ml double/heavy cream
- 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
- Preheat the oven to 200C/400F.
- Peel the outer leaves from the sprouts, and chop the ends of the stalks off. Place the sprouts in a small baking dish and dot on the butter in small pieces. Sprinkle on a pinch of salt and pepper and place in the oven for 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes sprinkle on half of each of the cheeses. Pour over the cream, stir and sprinkle the remaining cheeses on top. Place back in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is golden and the sauce is bubbling.
- Remove from the oven. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve.
