Savory Stuffed Brussel Sprouts
Stuffed Brussel Sprouts have a delightful combination of flavors featuring a savory blend of herbs, parmesan and ricotta cheese. Tender Brussels sprouts are carefully hollowed and generously filled with a creamy mixture of ricotta cheese, grated parmesan, and aromatic herbs. Baked to golden perfection, these delectable bites have the slight crunch of the Brussels sprouts and the creamy, cheesy filling, creating a palate-pleasing dish that’s both elegant and comforting. They are a wonderful appetizer in the fall complementing a tender cut of pork or a savory holiday turkey.
I came across this gem of a recipe for stuffed Brussel Sprouts by Jerry James Stone who has an awesome vegetarian food blog. He takes incredible photos, produces killer “how -to” videos like the one below.
Stuffed Brussel sprouts can be time consuming to make at first, but they can be made in advance and are totally worth it. And like most things, the more you do it, the better you get at it. I have made them enough times that now I can bang them out pretty quickly, but it wasn’t always that way. You just have to get the hang of it but trust me- it’s worth it!
This recipe combines the cored out pieces of Brussel sprouts with garlic, breadcrumbs, herbs, ricotta cheese, and parmesan cheese and then stuffs them back into the shells of the Brussel sprouts. The result is pure, bite sized deliciousness!
