About the music: It’s Monday and you probably have a job, which we hope you successfully neglected this weekend. Alas, the time has come to buckle down at that nine to five and work, work, work. Here at sfunk we know the cure to a melancholy week is in the details. So trust us when we say this delicious brussel sprout dish doesn’t miss a beat. Brussel sprouts are kinda like roller coasters, you have to be a certain age to enjoy the ride. In an attempt to stay in key with our tune (tasty treats, funky beats), we made this dish so delicious that even rugrats would want a bite. Let it be known, we do suggest that this meal be accompanied with whisky, friends and wiggle room for optional clothing. Just because we can we paired an extra long playlist for this happy hour orderve recipe. On the mix, we’ve got Ms. Sharon Jones, former prison guard turned into funk soul goddess, then our favorite horny hipsters from Brooklyn The Menehan Street Band. Complemented by a sh!tload of groovy tunes from jazz master Grant Green, Aaron Neville, the Meters and other funk soul brothers that’ll bring a smile to your face. Ladys and gents take this week by the brucshetta and may the brussels be with you.
Prep Time: 35 minutes
Total groove time: 1 hour
1 1/2 lbs brussel sprouts trimmed, peeled and quartered
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 onion chopped
salt ‘n peppa
Chop up all things that are good; onions, brussels garlic, baguette. Stop and appreciate the smooth horns whispering funky nothings in your eardrums.
Heat some olive oil in a heavy skillet and toss the brussels in, spreading around so that all of them are touching the hot surface. Cook for about 5-7 minutes like that adding salt and pepper to taste. Then add the onion and cook for another 5 minutes. Last, add the garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes. The brussels should be browning on the sides.
While that is happening slice the baguette and arrange on a baking sheet. Broil the bread until it starts to toast and take out. Spread the brie on each piece of bread and put back in the broiler for about 30 more seconds until the cheese melts. At this point Aaron Neville should be prepping any romantic company you have for the storm ahead.
Top the cheesy bread with the brussel mix and arrange on a swanky looking serving tray. Top it with some salt and pepper and a little balsamic vinegar, and impress your friends with your knowledge of obscure jazz funk.
