Recipe: Jamie's Brussels Sprouts

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you may remember this Brussels Sprouts recipe.  Just for the record, I was going to call that recipe "Emily's Brussels Sprouts" but I didn't want anyone to think that I was talking in the third person.

My friend Jamie recently shared with me another brussels sprouts recipe and I immediately bookmarked it in my brain for the near future.  Tonight I cooked them up as a side dish with sun dried tomato and chicken sausages and green onion smashed tomatoes.   I wanted to share the deliciousness.  Enjoy!

brussels sprouts + sun dried tomatoes + pancetta + bleu cheese = goodness

Jamie's Brussels Sprouts with Sun Dried Tomatoes, Pancetta and Bleu Cheese


I found all the ingredients for this dish at Trader Joe's.


  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and cut in half
  • 4 ounces julienne sliced sun dried tomatoes
  • 4 ounces chopped pancetta or bacon (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled bleu cheese
  • Olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400º F.  
  2. Place brussels sprouts on a jelly roll pan (baking sheet with sides) and drizzle with olive oil.  Toss to coat.
  3. Bake brussels sprouts in oven for 10 - 15 minutes until they just start to brown.  
  4. Remove pan from oven, reduce temperature to 350º F. 
  5. Add the sun dried tomatoes to the pan and stir to combine with brussels sprouts.
  6. Return pan to oven and bake for an additional 20 - 25 minutes, until the brussels sprouts are softened and browned. 
  7. While the brussels sprouts and sun dried tomatoes are baking, cook up the pancetta or bacon in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  When slightly crispy -- remove from pan, drain on paper towels and set aside.
  8. Remove brussels sprouts and sun dried tomatoes from oven and pour into a serving dish.  Stir in pancetta and bleu cheese. 

  9. Brussels sprouts with olive oil.
Cooking the pancetta.


Jamie shared that this is good with or without the pancetta/bacon so if you want a vegetarian dish, simply leave out that ingredient.  Easy peasy.

I like bleu cheese and two tablespoons was plenty for my taste buds.  However, if your love bleu cheese, go ahead and add a bit more.  Easy cheesy.
