I wanted to try something I don’t usually eat and make them in a different way. Yes yes I know your mother made you ate them right?  Well mine too.  I hid them under mashed potatoes, I spit them out, I even dropped them in my milk, just so I didn’t have to eat the dreaded brussel sprouts. Well once you try this I think you will be able to finally say, “Hey I think I like these! Revamped with parmesan cheese, cream with horseradish how can we go wrong?  I had seen this recipe once back during the holidays and didn’t really give it much thought until someone said, “Hey, I like brussel sprouts,” like I somehow offended them.  So this ones for you.  pb1You will need:

Serves 4-6

  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts (fresh works best)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp horseradish
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, divided into two 1/2 cups
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup plain breadcrumbs you can use panko too.
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.


Trim the ends off the Brussels sprouts, if needed, and cut them in half.  In a large pot filled with water put the brussel sprouts in with a scant amount of salt and bring water to a boil until the brussel sprouts are soft but not mushy, about 7-10 minutes.  Drain brussel sprouts and rinse with cold water. You will need them cool enough to rough chop.

pb3Rough chop the brussel sprouts and add to a 9inch baking dish. I sprayed mine with a non stick olive oil spray.

pb4Next, in a small bowl combine the heavy cream, horseradish, 1/2 cup of the parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper about a 1/2tsp of each. Whisk with a fork to incorporate the ingredients. Pour the cream mixture evenly over the brussel sprouts.


pb6In another small bowl add the breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup parmesan and the melted butter. ( I melted mine in the microwave for about 20 seconds.  Mix ingredients together with a fork until all the breadcrumbs are moistened.

pb7pb8Crumble evenly over the Brussels sprouts.

pb10Place the dish into preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Like a good pie! Oh great now I want pie.
