Happy Thanksgiving! If you are reading this post on Thursday, I am currently doing one of three things: cooking (while watching Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and drinking Mimosas), stuffing my face or walking off turkey at Walt Disney World.
This is the first holiday we will spend together as husband and wife! Although we are renting a house, you should have seen my car yesterday - I literally traveled with items we received from our Wedding Registry. My car was packed with cookware, my new mac daddy slow cooker and my blender. Although most of our wedding guests contributed to our amazing honeymoon, we did receive a few items which I am very thankful for.
Calphalon Stainless Steel Cookware now! Amazing price too - 12 pieces for $250. These are great pans for cooking, frying and sauteing.
Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 pound sliced pancetta, diced
4 shallots, thinly sliced
2 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Pre-heat oven to 425
Heat oil over medium heat in a roasting pan or large skillet. Add the pancetta and cook until golden brown and crisp. This took quite a while for me since I wanted to make sure the pancetta was extra crispy. Remove the pancetta to a plate lined with paper towels. Add the shallots to the pan and cook until soft. Add the Brussels sprouts and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper and roast in the oven until the Brussels are cooked through and golden brown. Transfer to a platter and top with the reserved pancetta.
