The perfect side, salad, and everything in between.

Everyone loves brussels sprouts. Whether they’re balsamic glazed or just roasted with salt, brussels sprouts have become a restaurant staple. However, I often find it hard to create a brussels sprouts dish at home that is equally as scrumptious and satisfying as my restaurant faves. But not anymore! Enter: truffle brussels sprouts.

With pancetta, marcona almonds, and plenty of Parmesan, this easy side dish or hearty salad is an absolute showstopper! The nuttiness of the almonds pairs perfectly with the bitterness of the brussels sprouts and the saltiness of the pancetta, creating a richly satisfying and undeniably delectable dish.
