Smoky Blue Cheese Polenta with Seared Brussels Sprouts & Prosciutto

Makes 4 servings.


  • 5 slices prosciutto, cut into strips
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or olive oil
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 4 c. Brussels sprouts, halved
  • 3 Tbsp. dry white wine
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 c. Salemville® Smokehaus Blue® cheese crumbles


In a large sauté pan, cook prosciutto slices over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove prosciutto, placing on plate; set aside.

Add butter or oil to sauté pan; when hot, add shallots and Brussels sprouts. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring infrequently to allow cut sides to brown. After Brussels sprouts are browned, stir in white wine to deglaze pan. Sprinkle salt over top and stir to incorporate.

Place sprouts and shallots in serving dish, sprinkling crisped prosciutto and blue cheese over top immediately so cheese melts slightly. Serve promptly.
