Raise your hand if you’re crazy for brussels sprouts!

ME! Me, me, me, me, me!!!!!

I know I’m not alone in my obsession with these weird little orbs of cabbagy goodness.

I love them roasted, raw, sautéed and practically any way you might imagine. However my latest sprouty addiction involves brussels, cream, two kinds of melted cheese, and Ritz crackers.

BOOM.

Although roasted brussels sprouts with crispy edges and tender centers are my go-to way to prepare sprouts, I wanted to dress them up a bit for the holidays.

Giving roasted brussels sprouts a nice hot bath in creamy molten garlic cheese sauce is a great way to up the ante!

To make Roasted Brussels Sprouts Gratin, roast sliced brussels in with butter for about 20 minutes to make the edges crackly.

While the brussels are roasting sauté onions and garlic in a skillet.

Then add a bit of cream cheese and half & half to make a silky sauce. Pour it over the roasted sprouts.

Top the sprouts with Emmentaler, a type of mild swiss Cheese, and toss to mix the brussels, creamy sauce, and cheese together.

This would be a perfect “green” dish for Thanksgiving this year.

Just be sure to make them the day of serving. Brussels sprouts are not known for being nearly as tasty on day two. (In fact, leftover brussels kind of smell funny.) So make sure to eat them up fresh out of the oven!
