And for me? Brussel Sprout Au Gratin – Adapted from Cooks.com
(I used crumbled bacon for the top and also add about 1 tbs sugar to the water when boiling the brussel sprouts to help them be less bitter)
1 1/2 lbs. fresh or 20 oz. frozen Brussels sprouts, trim and rinse if using fresh)
1 1/2 tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. flour
6 tbsp. milk
1 c. sour cream
2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
Shredded Cheddar cheese
Cook Brussels sprouts until tender not mushy in boiling salted water. Drain well and place in shallow baking dish. Make a thick sauce by melting the butter in a saucepan. Add flour and salt. Cook a minute or so. Remove from heat and gradually stir in the milk and sour cream. Return to heat and cook until thickened but not boiling. Stir in Parmesan cheese and pour over the sprouts. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Place in hot oven or broiler to melt cheese. Serves 6.
