Let’s Get Festive

Every time someone tells me they hate Brussels sprouts its around the holidays and why? because people love to serve them boiled as they usually become apart of the table decorations lol. They clearly havent seen my Roasted Brussels spruts with Shitto and my Lemon Pepper Brussels Sprouts recipes.

During the festive season sweet and savory combos are so popular. Camembert with jam or chutney and toasted nuts is one of my favorite appetizers and the inspiration to this dish.

Roasting Brussels Sprouts

This technique brings out a subtle sweetness and crunch by removing some of the moisture. This method can be done in the oven with a little oil and your favorite seasonings like you would your normal roasted veg or in the Air fryer like I have.

Say Cheese

Any Soft cheese will work for this dish as you want a slight gooey texture which in my opinion goes well with this dish. Ive tried brie and Blue and my favorite was the Castello Creamy Blue which has more flavor and bite than the ordinary Brie and camembert. A crumbly blue will also work well with this dish.

Be Berry and Go Nuts

Adding Roasted nuts and Dried berries will give this dish the sweetness you need. The best nuts are Pecans and brazil nuts as they have a natural sweetness without being too overpowering. Hazelnuts could also work well especially paired with the cheeses. Dried cranberries are the best to use as their tart and sweet flavor is an excellent balance.

Bacon me please

Smoked meat is like icing on cake to me. Adding bacon weather it be pork or turkey rashers will guaranteed be a hit.

Storing this dish

Keep any left overs in an airtight container for up to 2 or 3 days tops. Reheat in the microwave but you will need to add more cheese of course.
