Cheezy Creamy Garlic Sprouts

Cheese, cream and garlic when mixed together are a match made in heaven and they do not fail to succeed with shredded sprouts either. I think these could be my favourite sprouts of all time, but be warned, you might be a bit stinky for a day or so!


Sprouts, thinly sliced, about a dozen should do.
1x Banana shallot, thinly sliced.
Garlic, 1 whole head plus another clove
Double cream, half a pot, about
Mature cheddar cheese, a big handful grated
Olive oil


1. Put the head of garlic in a foil parcel, drizzle with oil and season with salt then wrap up the parcel and pop in the oven on gas mark 7 for about 30 minutes.
2. In a frying pan melt a big nob of butter and add to it the shredded sprouts and shallots. Stir fry for about three minutes.
3. Crush or grate the 1 clove of garlic into the pan and stir fry for another minute.
4. Pour in the cream and grated cheese and stir well until totally combined and heated through.
5. Remove the garlic bulb from the oven, allow to cool slightly then peel the cloves.
6. Season the sprouts and serve topped with the roast garlic cloves and a drizzle of olive oil.
