Starter: Brussels Sprout Popper Crostini

These crostini are sure to be a hit with both Brussels sprout lovers and skeptics alike!
Soup: Brussels Sprout Popper and Potato Soup
For a cozy and comforting soup, try this recipe for Brussels Sprout Popper and Potato Soup. To make this soup, start by melting butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add diced onion and cook until translucent, then stir in minced garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add diced potatoes and chicken broth to the pot, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth. Stir in a cup of heavy cream, and season with salt and pepper to taste. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with halved Brussels Sprout Poppers, a sprinkle of chopped fresh herbs, and a drizzle of heavy cream.
…and now onto a main course idea.
Main Course: Brussels Sprout Popper and Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin
For a delicious and impressive main course, try this recipe for Brussels Sprout Popper and Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin. To make this dish, start by preheating your oven to 400°F. Next, season a pork tenderloin with salt and pepper, then wrap it in a layer of thinly sliced bacon. Place the pork on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and the pork is cooked to your desired level of doneness. While the pork is cooking, prepare a side of Brussels Sprout Popper and Bacon Fried Rice. To make this, cook diced bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set it aside, then add diced onion and cook until translucent. Stir in cooked rice, halved Brussels Sprout Poppers, and the reserved cooked bacon, and cook until heated through. Season with soy sauce, sesame oil, and green onions to taste.
