This might be the shortest recipe I ever write.  It features leftovers from my Brussels sprouts recipe.  It’s a simple, but stunning, sandwich that uses Brussels sprouts in a way that possibly you’ve never imagined.  I made this the other day, when I was craving a sandwich, and it was so good that I decided – on the spot – that I was posting my instructions for assembly on this site.  And really, that’s all it is, is assembly, because the Brussels sprouts are already made.  Give it a try.  It’s unusual, but I think you will like this bite very much.  Makes 1 sandwich.


Leftover Brussels sprouts  including bacon
2 slices of bread, toasted
2 slices of sharp cheddar cheese

Toast the bread.  Put a slice of cheddar on each piece of bread.  Warm the Brussels sprouts in a microwave or pan on the stovetop.  Put the sprouts on one slice of bread, top with the other slice, cut in half, and enjoy!

Note:  There is bacon (or pancetta) in the original Brussels sprouts recipe.  Feel free to cook more bacon (or pancetta) for your sandwich!

I wrote this recipe a few days after Thanksgiving.  I had leftover Brussels sprouts (one of my all-time favorite vegetables), and I was tired of turkey, and this combination just sounded so good to me.  And it is good!  Crunchy, salty, and cheesy.  If you've never tried a Brussels Sproutwich, now is the time!
