Brussel Sprouts Au Gratin

Happy College Graduation Day for our Kathleen!  Can't believe she is 21 and graduating!  Woo Hoo!  Mom and dad get a raise! :-)

These were a BIG hit for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved them. We will be making them again soon.

Brussel Sprouts Au Gratin

2 TB butter
2 TB flour
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk Beth used 3/4 c milk and 3/4 c whipping cream
3 TB cream cheese
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 to 1 1/2 lbs fresh brussel sprouts, trimmed

 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 2-quart (8x8) casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In a medium-size saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour to form a roux. Whisk in mustard, onion powder, and salt.

3. When the paste is warm and bubbly, pour in milk. Heat until mixture thickens.

4. Remove from heat and stir in cream cheese and parmesan cheese until melted and smooth.

5. Place the trimmed brussel sprouts in the prepared pan (Note: if your brussel sprouts are large you may need to cut them in half so they are bite-sized). Pour cheese mixture over brussel sprouts.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until brussel sprouts are soft.
