"Brussels sprouts are really quite versatile." -Yotam Ottolenghi, Chef

The refrigerator light goes on...

I call these "holiday" brussels sprouts, but they can be for any time of the year. It is just that the cranberries make them so festive, and the rich savory flavor of the ham combined with the sweetness of the cranberries makes a great complement to the slight bitterness of the sprouts. Serve this with a savory pork dish or roasted chicken breast.
