BRUSSELS SPROUT SLIDERS

Sweet, sour, HOT, cheesy, bacon, veggie One-Bite delights! There is everything to love about these Brussels Sprout Sliders with Ghost Chili Onion Jam!

Serve as an appetizer. A complete meal for a luncheon. Perfect on a Tapas/Meze table spread, but most of all enjoy the layers of satisfying flavors these beautiful sliders bring to your table. Watch out, though, because all the other things you serve with them, will shy in comparison. (wink)

  • Brussels sprouts – 24, cut in half on a horizontal cut

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350

In a bowl, toss cut Brussels sprouts, olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast on a baking sheet about 25 minutes, until softened but still maintaining their bright color.

Cook bacon until brown but still soft enough to pierce with a toothpick. Cool, and cut into squares.

Cut brie into ¼ inch thick slices, and then into squares. The idea is to cut the bacon and cheese into sizes that fit between 2 ends of Brussels sprouts, leaving a little showing.

Assemble

Place one end of the Brussels sprout on the toothpick, a piece of bacon, then cheese, a quarter teaspoon of onion jam, and finish with the bottom Brussels sprout end. Place on a platter and sprinkle smoked chili flakes across.

Serve room temperature or pop in the oven for just one minute, but do not melt the cheese. These will store a day or two in the fridge.

  1. I almost died when I took a taste of a ghost chili at a spice shop near here. But I quickly came back to life which is lucky since I can’t wait to try this! I love Brussels sprouts and this jam sounds killer! Thanks Robin!

    • Too funny! I too gave Ghost Chili to all the guys in the family with warning labels attached. I think one jar will last my lifetime, but great heat with the right ingredients!
