Recipe By Abbey Cochran, Savory Spice—South End/Charlotte, NC

It's quick to prepare, so try it as a weeknight meal alongside roast chicken or as a main dish with a big green salad on the side.


1 lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup grated Gruyere cheese

1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
