Damn good Brussel sprouts

I’ve got a recipe for you today,  this one’s kick ass especially for those of you who think you’re not  fans of Brussel sprouts.

I’d love to take credit for this, but I got it from AllRecipes.com. This may be coming to Thanksgiving dinner with me this year.

You’ll need:

  • 2 or 3 slices of Prosciutto, chopped well. I got some crazy amazing duck prosciutto from my farmer’s market and used that
  • Two pats of butter
  • About 1/4 cup of either pine nuts or blanched almonds chopped well
  • About a pound of Brussel sprouts cored and either shredded or chopped up really well
  • 1/2 of a small yellow onion, minced
  • Celtic Sea salt and pepper to taste
  1. Take out your big skillet and cook the prosciutto for a bit until the fat melts and it starts to get a little crispy. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in the same skillet with the prosciutto fat, add the nuts and cook until browned.
  3. Add the Brussel sprouts and onion to the pan, cook over medium heat until done, only about 7 minutes.
  4. Stir in crumbled prosciutto, mix well, season  and serve.

I served this with roasted beets and turnips over brown rice, it was filling and delicious.

If you can wrangle up some duck prosciutto, do so immediately it’s sublime. I got some from the Hudson Valley Duck Farm, I don’t know if they ship, but it’s worth a call to find out. Their number is (845)292-2500.
