Brussels Sprouts on a Pick
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A fabulous appetizer or snack! This was one of the recipes I demonstrated at the 1st annual San Benito Olive Festival at Paicines Ranch.
fresh Brussels sprouts
Wash and trim the sprouts. Place in a glass or ceramic batter bowl. (Do not use plastic!) Cover with a glass plate or lid, or use a large chard or kale leaf as a cover, just lay it on top of the sprouts. Cook in microwave, using 5 minutes per pound of vegetables as a guide. Usually 12 or so sprouts will take 4-5 minutes. Heat a heavy bottomed skillet and add 1 teaspoon olive oil. Gently saute the sprouts to brown just a bit, but do not let the pan get so hot that it is smoking. Gentle! Put 1-2 teaspoons olive oil on a plate and 1-2 tablespoons cheese on another plate. Roll each sprout in the oil and then in the cheese, insert a carrot stick into each. Arrange and serve! (OR use a toothpick for the stick if you don't have any carrots!)
