Just before the end of the winter season, I´d like to share this very special combination of Brussels sprouts, brie, onion marmelade and crispy bacon: mini cheeseburgers from Brussels sprouts. And, above all, it is easy to make. The most complex part is to make the burgers at the end. I found the inspiration at delish.

Ingredients:

  • brussels sprouts (depending on how many burgers you want to make)
  • brie
  • bacon
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of vinegar
  • spices: chili powder, salt, pepper, nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • some olive oil

Method:

  • Preheat the oven at 180°C.
  • Halve the Brussels sprouts.
  • Season them with olive oil and nutmeg.
  • Bake them in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, chop the onion and the garlic clove very finely.
  • Bake the onion with the butter for 5-8 minutes until tender. Then add the garlic.
  • Then add the brown sugar, maple syrup, vinegar and chili powder, and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake the bacon in a pan until crispy.
  • Take the sprouts out of the oven, and let them cool down a bit.
  • Meanwhile, cut the brie and the bacon into small pieces.
  • Put the bacon, marmelade and brie on top of a lower sprout half.
  • Put the top half on it, and fix with a toothpick.

The preparation was quite simple, the most difficult was compiling the burgers, as the Brussels sprouts are a bit smaller than a classical burger.
