Celiac.com 12/27/2016 - Here's a sure-fire recipe for Brussels sprouts that will have even picky eaters doing a double-take. Bacon, sherry, shallots and cream form the foundation of this delightful marriage of flavors. Toss in some mushrooms, and you've got a tasty way to make Brussels sprouts disappear.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 10-12 medium brown mushrooms, chopped
  • ⅔ cup heavy cream
  • ⅓ cup cream sherry, or regular cooking sherry
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:
Dissolve 1 tablespoon of salt in enough water to cover the Brussels sprouts in a bowl, and soak the sprouts in the salty water for 1 hour.

Drain off the water, and toss the sprouts in olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper to coat thoroughly.

Heat oven to 475F (245C).

Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, about 6 to 8 minutes, turning occasionally, until just brown at the edges.

Keeping the bacon and drippings in the pan, reduce heat to medium.

Stir in the shallots and mushrooms, then cook about 3-5 minutes more, until the shallots turn clear.

Add the garlic, and cook another minute, then add in the sherry and cream, and stir until well-combined.

Bring the mixture to a boil, and stir until mixture cooks down by half, and the sauce is thick enough to coat a wooden spoon.

As the sauce cooks, place the Brussels sprouts, flat sides down, onto a baking sheet, and bake about 12-15 minutes, until the sprouts are browned.

Place sprouts in a bowl, and add the sauce a bit at a time, tossing until well-coated, as desired.

Add a dash of salt and black pepper, and serve warm, with your favorite entree.

Thank goodness you got a Dr in the end that recognised what was happening! I will have to see what my bloods show in January, I really hope they show coeliac, not because I want it but because I feel that's what this is! A fair few people yourself included Barbie have said my elbows remind ...

I'm so sorry to hear that! (((Hugs))) I do wonder if gluten has been causing the symptoms of what your Dr believed was gastritis. I think either a whole foods diet or whole foods plus certified gluten free for a time would be good. Maybe 6 months and then retest. In my house...

Jane your fingers look exactly as mine did! So very painful, I remember feeling like I had broken a glass and shards were stuck in my fingers and hands....

Those elbows look very familiar! I had that rash for a little over a year and a half, and with each break out, the blisters would change, worsen in appearance and the itch got insanely itchier. The only topical product I found that helped a bit, was GoldBond lotion or liquid spray with Lidocaine...

I was diagnosed almost 15 years ago and have been conscientious about avoiding gluten. Yet, follow up endoscopies during those first three years showed continued SB inflammation. Other issues, like elevated liver enzymes resolved, however. So there was partial victory but also some disappointment...
