this dish is spectacular.  how can you go wrong with cheese, cream and panko?

to make the dish, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  prepare a 2 quart baking dish with canola spray.  bring a pot of water to a boil.  use one pound of Brussels sprouts, with the stems and outer leaves removed.  cook sprouts until tender about 8 to 10 minutes. 

drain the sprouts and chop into chunks.  transfer them to the baking dish and toss with a pinch of red pepper flakes.  salt and pepper to taste.  pour 1/2 cup heavy cream over the dish.  sprinkle with 1/2 cup grated white cheddar cheese. and then top with panko and 2 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into pieces.

bake the gratin until bubbly and golden brown, about 15 minutes.  serve with chicken, fish, pork or beef for your vegetable side dish.  i promise your guests will love this dish.
