AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 6 people

  • 50 gm butter, coarsely chopped
  • 50 gm (1/3 cup) plain flour

  • 150 ml pouring cream
  • 80 gm Taleggio, rind discarded, broken into small pieces
  • 500 gm Brussels sprouts, trimmed, outer leaves discarded

01   Preheat oven to 190C. Heat butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat until foaming, then add flour and stir continuously until sandy coloured (1-2 minutes). Gradually add combined milk and cream, whisking continously until smooth and incorporated (4-6 minutes). Bring to the boil, stir in Taleggio and season to taste.
02   Steam Brussels sprouts in a steamer until almost tender (5-7 minutes), then drain and transfer to a buttered 2-litre ovenproof dish.
03   Pour sauce over sprouts, scatter with thyme and bake until golden and bubbly (20-30 minutes). Serve hot.
