BRUSSELS SPROUTS BAKED WITH BLUE CHEESE
2 lbs. Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and yellow leaves removed
½ cup butter, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup pine nuts
½ cup crumbled blue cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. (175 degrees C.) Place the Brussels sprouts into a casserole or Dutch oven with a lid. Arrange pieces of butter on top of the sprouts. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Cover with the lid. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until sprouts are just barely tender. Stir now and then to keep them from sticking. During the last 10 minutes, sprinkle the pine nuts over the sprouts and remove the lid. When the sprouts are done, sprinkle blue cheese over them before serving.
