Roasted Brussels sprouts get a boost of flavor from pungent blue cheese and salty prosciutto. An easy and impressive side dish.
Recipe type: Vegetables, Sides
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 1 ounce thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1-pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • ⅓ cup (1½ ounces) blue cheese crumbles
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the prosciutto slices on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet and bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 12-15 minutes until dried and crispy. Once cool, roughly chop and set aside.
  2. Raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees and place the Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet. Drizzle over the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss everything together and rearrange the Brussels sprouts so that they’re cut side down on the baking sheet.
  3. Roast on the bottom rack of the oven for 15-20 minutes or until you can easily pierce them with a toothpick.
  4. Sprinkle on the blue cheese, walnuts, and crispy prosciutto and toss everything together thoroughly before serving (see notes).
The residual heat will soften the blue cheese as you stir everything together but if you prefer the cheese softer and a little more melted, stick the baking sheet back in the oven for 1-2 minutes.
