HARDWOOD CHERRY


INGREDIENTS

1 LBS APPLE WOOD SMOKED THICK-CUT BACON

1 LOAF FRENCH COUNTRY BREAD, OR OTHER THICK LOAF FOR MAKING CROUTONS

KOSHER SALT

2 LBS BRUSSELS SPROUTS, TRIMMED AND QUARTERED

2 TBSP MINCED SHALLOTS

1 TBSP FRESH THYME LEAVES

3 TBSP EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

FRESHLY GROUND BLACK PEPPER

2-3 TBSP BALSAMIC VINEGAR

1/2 – 1 CUP GRATED PARMIGIANO-REGGIANO


PREPARATION

  • When ready to cook, set temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. Place a large cast iron pan on the grill as grill preheats.
  • Use a serrated knife to cut the crust off the bread, then tear into 1-inch pieces.
  • When the grill is hot, cook the bacon in the cast iron pan until crispy on both sides, about 15-20 minutes. Cook in batches depending on the size of the pan.
  • When the bacon is cooked, remove from the pan but leave the drippings. Allow the bacon to cool, then coarsely chop or crumble the bacon. Set aside.
  • Place the croutons in the bacon drippings and stir to coat. Add a generous pinch of salt.
  • Close the grill and cook, stirring once or twice, until the bread is toasty, about 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and place the croutons on a plate.
  • While the croutons cook, place the Brussels sprouts, shallots, and thyme on a large baking sheet. Toss with the olive oil, 2 tsp of salt, and a generous grinding of pepper.
  • Place on the grill and cook with the lid down for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • When the Brussels sprouts are browned, add the balsamic vinegar and cook with the lid closed again until caramelized, 10-15 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.
  • Toss the sprouts immediately with the bacon and croutons and place in a serving dish. Sprinkle with Parmigiano Reggiano and drizzle with olive oil to serve.
  • Taste, adding more salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
  • *Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
