Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Prosciutto Bites

A) This is beyond simple. B) This is also beyond delicious. C) This needs to be happening in your kitchen. D) NOW.

Ingredients

1
pound small Brussels sprouts, rinsed of any dirt
2
tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4
pound thinly sliced prosciutto
1
pinch coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • 2 Slice the Brussels sprouts in half, lengthwise. Don't trim the ends, as they'll hold together better with them.
  • 3 Toss the sprouts on a rimmed baking baking sheet with the oil and a good sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  • 4 Bake for 40 minutes total, but start checking around the 25-minute mark. Toss them around too.
  • 5 In the meantime, chop up the prosciutto into small chunks. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high. Add the prosciutto and saute for about 5 minutes, until nice and crispy. Set aside.
  • 6 Remove the sprouts from the oven and let them cool about 5 minutes, or until you can handle them.
  • 7 Using toothpicks, slide on a sprout half, followed by a slice or 3 of the ham, then bookend it with another sprout half.
  • 8 Continue until you have about 32 mini skewers.
  • 9 Arrange on a platter and serve immediately.

Step By Step  

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Prosciutto Bites

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

If I have the super powers that I'd like to think I do, I'm reading your mind right now. And you're icked out by Brussels sprouts.


So right here it's my cue to say, "But you've never had them the right way." And then it's your cue to respond with, "Everyone says that. Get over yourself." And then it's my cue to say back to you, "Ouch! No need to be so mean. It's my hair, isn't it?"

Okay so my super powers might be a little sensitive.

Brussels sprouts!


You either love 'em or hate 'em. I happen to wrangle a healthy obsession with them, so I'd like to show you the E-A-S-I-U-U-U-S-T way to make, eat, and downright flabbergast your guests with them.

Plus they're served with crispy prosciutto like little books on toothpicks, so you're positively going to hear multiple rounds of "aw!", "so cute!" and, “I kind of want to pet it!"

Hey, these things happen.

So, you start with some gorgeous Brussels sprouts.
