Total time: 
Serves: 24 crostini
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 6 cups shaved brussels sprouts
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 baguette, cut into ½ inch slices
  • ¾ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 3 ounces softened cream cheese
  1. In a large non-stick skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towel and pour grease into small bowl. Wash pan out. When bacon has cooled, chop finely.
  2. Heat the same pan to a medium heat and add two teaspoons of the bacon grease. Add brussels sprouts and salt. Sauté until softened, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and toss with chopped bacon.
  3. Using a pastry brush, brush crostini with remaining bacon fat. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a grill pan to a medium-high heat and toast bread on both sides until they have grill marks. (You can also pop them on a baking sheet at 350 degrees and bake until crisp, about 5-6 minutes)
  4. In the bottom of a mini food processor or blender, add blue cheese and cream cheese. Blend until smooth.
  5. Spread crostini with whipped blue cheese and top with bacon and brussels sprout sauté.
