Brussels Sprouts and Grapes au Gratin

Red grapes add pops of sweetness to this bubbly, cheesy veggie side. I make mine with Swiss, but if you're feeling fancy, try Gruyere. And if you have one on hand, toss in a sliced apple. —Lorie Durrant, Nashville, Tennessee

    It's in the oven right now, so I haven't tasted it. I added an apple as suggested. But when I mixed the milk in with the arrowroot powder, it got very thick. Even after thinning it out, it was too thick. So if I make this again, I will adjust the amounts for the roux.

    We really liked the grapes with the Brussels sprouts! I also substituted all-purpose flour, and my family doesn't like Swiss cheese so we used Muenster.

    I liked this recipe! I used frozen Brussels Sprouts cooked in 1-1/2 cups water and used all-purpose flour as I didn't have the arrowroot flour. The grapes added a colorful touch to this dish!

    The recipe was great except for the Grapes everyone in the family picked them out. I would def make again without the grapes. Was creamy and full of flavor.
