Along with the fresh Brussels sprouts you will need pancetta, vinegar, garlic, walnuts, feta, and pomegranate seeds. Some oil, mustard, salt, and pepper finishes it off nicely. Brussels sprouts range in size. The tiny ones will be good as they are while bigger ones should be halved. Wash them first and cut off the dry bit on the bottom.

Pancetta is actually the same cut of meat as American bacon, so you can sub that if you want. Salt pork, smoked ham, or prosciutto are also fine to use in pancetta’s place. I know it can hard to find sometimes.

More Tweaks and Variations

Brussels sprouts with feta is a great combination which I adored since the first time I tried it. If you want to use a different cheese though, you can substitute goat’s cheese or fresh mozzarella. Shaved fresh parmesan also goes nicely with the sprouts, or even gruyere.
