Makes: 12 servings
Prep 30 mins Cook 20 mins
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.

From the Test Kitchen*Note:
  • If desired, omit prosciutto and oil and substitute 4 slices of chopped bacon; cook bacon until crisp. Discard drippings.
To serve right away:
  • Chilling step may be omitted; proceed with step 4 and cook sprouts only 6 minutes in step 5.
