If you couldn’t tell already…I LOVE brussel sprouts. I buy them just about every time I go to the grocery store so I have been trying to come up with other ways to cook them and this one was definitely a hit. How could you go wrong with blue cheese? I know brussel sprouts aren’t everyones favorite but if you are trying to like them because of all of the health benefits they have then I definitely suggest you try this simple recipe out! The blue cheese pairs well together with the bitter taste of brussel sprouts. If you don’t like blue cheese use feta cheese, the different options are countless!
1 lb large brussel sprouts; cut in half
1/2 cup blue cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 Tbsp parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1. Heat a large pot with water until boiled. Once boiled, add halved brussel sprouts and let cook for 7 minutes. Drain and let brussel sprouts cool. Once cooled, spoon out middle of sprouts until a slight indent is formed for the blue cheese filling. Save the middle of the sprouts for the filling!
2. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. In a food processor add the extra brussel sprouts from the middle, blue cheese, breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, pepper, and onion powder, mix until combined.
3. Place brussel sprouts on greased baking sheet. With a teaspoon, add in about 1 tsp of the blue cheese stuffing to brussel sprouts.
4. Sprinkle tips with more parmesan cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes or until tops are crusty. Delicious and nutritious!
