Or simply, “The Best Thanksgiving Appetizer”.
And that is not an exaggeration. Promise. These are the best.
Why are these the best?
Well, because there is tons of gooey melted brie cheese. Brie should always, always be added to nachos from now on. Guys, it is crazy good and they are nachos so they can be put together in very little time.
These are a real winner. Just sayin.
And please, please, please do not get scared off by the brussels sprouts.
Seriously, they get so caramelized and loaded with cheese that it is hard to tell they are there. And to be honest, if you really dislike them you can leave them off. But I did serve these to my brussels sprouts hating mom one afternoon and she went crazy for these. It’s the brie. I think it is kind of magical.
But there is not only just brie. No, there is actually three cheeses.
I know, three!! This excites me greatly. Oh, and speaking of cheese, have you guys entered my Wisconsin Cheese Basket Giveaway yet? You really need to do that. It ends Sunday and man oh man it’s a good giveaway. You get an entire holiday cheese basket shipped to your door.
I also made homemade cranberry molasses to drizzle over these guys and wow. The stuff is good and super easy to make. I could drizzle it on everything!
These nachos are the perfect thing to serve as a Thanksgiving (or Christmas!! Just look at those gorgeous red and green colors!) appetizer.
They are pretty, delicious and loaded with cranberries and brie. Which in my mind is a Thanksgiving staple. You just have to have brie and cranberries during the holidays. You just have too.
I have had the idea for these nachos in my head since mid October, but I held out so I could make them closer to the holidays. Finally the time has come to share them.
I am so incredibly excited!
First, you need to caramelize the butternut squash and brussels sprouts. It’s what makes them so delicious and so perfectly sweet and savory with the brie. It really just works.
Then you throw in some spices to balance the sweetness and add the cranberries in the last few minutes of cooking to liven them up a bit. Pretty simple stuff, but still so awesome.
Oh, and you only have to dirty one dish! Holy heck, yes!
After you get the veggies caramelized all you have to do is layer on the goodness and melt, melt, melt melt!
Oh, and there are loads of veggies in there, so these are totally healthy.
And I am totally in love.
FYI, melted brie and tortilla chips is probably one of the best things ever. You’ll see.
