There is a ton of flavor here. It’s savory and umptious when it first comes out of the oven and there are layers upon layers of flaky, buttery flavor. If you’re a brussels lover you will love love love this recipe.
1 sheet of puff pastry, defrosted
6 ounces fontina cheese, freshly grated
1 ½ cups sliced brussels sprouts
2 garlic cloves, minced
pinch of salt
freshly cracked black pepper
½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
⅓ cup chopped pistachios, I use roasted and salted!
1 egg + 1 teaspoon water, beaten for an egg wash
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the sheet of puff pastry on the parchment. Poke a few holes with a fork in the pastry center. This helps keep the center from bubbling up too much!
Cover the puff pastry with about three quarters of the fontina cheese, leaving a ½-inch border along the outsides. Top the fontina with the sliced brussels and minced garlic. Sprinkle on a pinch of salt and black pepper.
Sprinkle on the rest of the fontina. Sprinkle on the pistachios.
Brush the edges of the pastry with the egg wash. Bake the pastry for 20 to 25 minutes, until the pastry is slightly puffed and golden and the cheese is bubbly. Let cool for a minute then slice and serve!
