Add to the Thanksgiving Menu

I tried a new recipe tonight that Kyle requested be added to the Thanksgiving line up. We'll definitely be putting it in the normal dinner rotation. I wish I had taken a photo in the serving dish because it is quite attractive. It's a good side dish when you have company. The photo above is our dinner from tonight: Stubb's marinade chicken breast, baked butternut squash, and the star of the meal: Brussels Sprouts Gratin. YUM!

Brussels Sprouts Gratin
1 pound Brussels Sprouts
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 sharp white cheddar grated
1/4-1/2 cup bread crumbs
salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Boil pot of water with salt. Add brussels sprouts, boil 8-10 minutes. Drain. grease a baking dish with butter. Toss Brussels sprouts with salt, pepper to taste and sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Pour cream over brussels sprouts, sprinkle with cheese, sprinkle with bread crumbs, dot with butter. Bake 15 minutes.

Sounds delicious!! (Cheese makes everything better, in my opinion...) How sweet that Reese was such a fan! Is he a good veggie eater? My best friend's hubby slices brussels sprouts until they almost look shredded and then sautees them in garlic and oil... that's yummy too!

You know, I have never had brussels sprouts and neither has Jamie. I tried to get him to try them as an appetizer when we were out to dinner a few weeks ago--he wouldn't, I should have:-).

It is awesome that Reese liked these!!

Maybe I'll be brave enough to try this recipe here.
