A beautiful side to complement your festive meal.
Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add Brussels sprouts and cook until they begin to brown, about 6-8 minutes.
Add cream and parmesan cheese. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens and darkens, about 5-6 minutes. Stir in chestnuts. Transfer to serving dish and garnish with parsley.
Note: Brussels sprouts can also be roasted in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 30 minutes before adding to the cream, cheese and chestnuts.
Bacon Pption: Sometimes when special occasion call for it (like Christmas!), I add bacon (as much or as little as you like) that has been cooked and cut into small bite sized pieces. Brussels sprouts and bacon is a match made in heaven!
