Brussel Sprouts, Figs and Gorgonzola

I made this yesterday and it was very tasty, enough that I ate all the left overs this morning. I had gotten the brussel sprouts from the farm.Last year the farm had a bumper crop of sprouts and I had to devise many ways to consume as I don’t fancy them much. A few weeks ago I was in line at TJ’s (trader joes) and somehow ended up chatting with the guy in line before me. (my son comments how I am always talking to people at TJ’s) He told me he was making brussel sprouts and figs, I was intrigued. I did some research and found this recipe.

I was expecting some guests who were vegetarians so that wasn’t going to fly I instead did this and am glad it turned out.
