Before you start

Saucepan | Kettle boiled | Colander or sieve | Garlic crush or microplane | Baking or casserole dish with low sides

Infuse the cream

  • Pour the cream into a small saucepan with the thyme sprigs and bay. Bring to a gentle simmer and simmer for 3-4 minutes then switch off the heat. Set aside to infuse the cream

For the hazelnut breadcrumbs

  • Pop the hazelnuts on a baking tray and roast in the oven for about 8 minutes until golden and smelling delicious
  • Pick the thyme leaves from the stalk
  • Once the hazelnuts have cooled, finely chop them
  • In a small pan over medium heat, toast the breadcrumbs. Once golden brown, stir through thyme leaves and chopped hazelnuts

For the sprouts

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Once boiling, add the sprouts and simmer for 3 minutes to soften them. Drain and allow to steam dry for at least 5 minutes

For the gratin

  • Wash and slice the leeks into rounds then peel and crush the garlic
  • In a large frying pan over medium to high heat, melt the butter. Once foaming, add the leeks and a pinch of salt and saute, stirring often, for about 4 minutes until soft. Add the crushed garlic, and cook for a further minute. Add the sprouts and stir well so that the vegetables are completely combined. Remove from the heat

Bake and serve!

  • Preheat the oven to 200*C fan setting
  • Tip the brussel sprouts and leeks into a high sided baking dish. Fish out the thyme and bay from the cream and stir through the nutmeg. Pour the cream over the brussels and leeks. Bake in the hot oven for 10 minutes, until golden on the top and bubbling round the sides
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the prepared breadcrumbs. Serve immediately
