Sprouts and Bacon with Stilton
I came up with this lovely 'recipe' last Christmas as a way of using up the last of the Brussels sprouts and cooked ham.
Using a tub of cheese sauce makes this a real convenience. You could make it as a side dish to a roast dinner too - a sort of cauliflower cheese meets sprouts and bacon! If you can find the purple sprouts as well as the green, this would make a real showstopper.
You could make the cheese sauce from scratch, or open a tub of supermarket cheese sauce - the Tesco Finest cheese sauce gets top marks from me.
Then simply slice the sprouts, chop the bacon or ham and combine with the cheese sauce, season to taste and fork in some crumbed Stilton before turning into a baking dish. Pop in a hot oven and cook until, bubbling.
