Brussels Sprouts with Frizzled Prosciutto
Ingredients
2 1/2
pounds Brussels sprouts
1
tablespoon olive oil
4
ounces thinly sliced prosciutto*
3
tablespoons butter
1/2
cup thinly sliced shallots or chopped onion
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1
tablespoon red wine vinegar
Directions
  1. Trim stems and remove any wilted outer leaves from Brussels sprouts; wash. Cut any large sprouts in half lengthwise.
  2. In a large Dutch oven bring a large amount of salted water to boiling. Carefully add Brussels sprouts and cook for 6 to 8 minutes until just tender (centers should still be slightly firm). Drain and spread out in a shallow baking pan.
  3. Place sprouts in an airtight container and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
  4. When ready to serve, heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto to skillet, half at a time, and cook until crisp; remove from skillet. Reduce heat to medium. Add butter and shallots to skillet. Cook and stir about 2 minutes or until shallots begin to soften.
  5. Add Brussels sprouts, salt, and pepper to skillet. Cook and stir Brussels sprouts about 8 minutes or until heated through. Add vinegar and stir to coat. Transfer Brussels spouts to a serving bowl. Top with prosciutto and serve. Makes 12 servings.
