Brussel Sprouts

At a recent wedding, I ate some amazing brussel sprouts!  They were caramelized with walnuts and gorgonzola cheese.  They were so yummy that I decided to try my own version of them last night.

I roasted the brussel sprouts:
Toss them in olive oil and cut little tiny crosses in the stalk so that the heat reaches the core
And I toasted the walnuts:
I sauteed them to achieve the same effect, just until the nutty scent was released
Once they were both done, I tossed them together and topped with gorgonzola
If you're wanting to try this recipe, I would do a few things differently.  First, I would cut the brussel sprouts in half before cooking.  Second, I think I would opt for steaming the brussel sprouts first so they're nice and tender, then finish them off in the oven.  All in all, it's a tasty combination!


  1. Everyone thinks it's weird that I love brussel sprouts, but I'm not ashamed :) I can't wait to try this recipe!! Happy weekend Holly! xo
