*This recipe was developed for the Gourmet Sizzler? Electric Griddle (EA-DCC10). Adjustments may be necessary when using other models.
In a large pot, boil water and add a pinch of salt (not in ingredients list). Blanch brussels sprouts for 2 to 4 minutes depending on the size. Drain water and set aside.
Turn the Gourmet Sizzler? Electric Griddle (EA-DCC10) control knob to 300oF. When the pilot lamp turns off, melt butter and sauté shallots for 10 seconds then add bacon. Continue to sauté for one minute.
Add brussels sprouts to the griddle, sprinkle salt and pepper.
Occasionally stir and cook for 8 - 10 minutes or until brussels sprouts become tender.
Add sage leaves and heavy cream to the griddle and mix well. Check and adjust the taste with salt and pepper.
Turn heat off and serve while hot. Enjoy!
