Brussels sprouts gratin

Lynnda Cloutier


even the hardest Brussels sprouts haters like this dish. The sprouts are covered in cheese sauce. Nutty, buttery Gruyere is a perfect companion for the sprouts in this dish is a great side dish for chicken, pork or roasted meats. If you have some dry mustard, whisk in a teaspoon or two and a pinch of grated nutmeg into the milk to add a bit of warm spice and richness to the sauce. You can even add some toasted chopped hazelnuts sprinkle over the top just before serving for some crunch. Serves 6 to 8Source: Unknown
