Remember those Brussels sprouts I picked from the plot last Sunday, well this is what I did with all 450g of them.
I made Brussels Sprouts Gratinée.
I have never eaten so many Brussels sprouts in my life. These were not bitter at all. I especially loved the crunch of the breadcrumbs on top.
450g Brussels sprouts, cooked until tender
350g new potatoes (I used Sofia, that were grown in Britain), cooked until tender and halved
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon paprika
a generous pinch of cayenne
300ml crème fraiche
40g melted butter
50g fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to gas mark 5. Pour the crème fraiche into an ovenproof dish. Stir in the paprika, cayenne and season with salt and pepper. Tip in both the sprouts and the potatoes and mix well so that the vegetables are well coated.
Mix the breadcrumbs with the melted butter. Spread evenly on top of the potato and sprouts mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 - 30 minutes and the crumbs are crisp and golden.
