Remove the loose outer leaves, trim away any excess stem and then slice in half. Any larger sprouts slice into quarters.
Place in a dish/container and put to one side.
Prepare the Gorgonzola cheese sauce
Place the butter and chopped shallots into a small milk pan and gently heat. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the shallots are soft. Keep the pan on a low-medium heat and add the flour. Stir well with a wooden spoon - the mixture will become like breadcrumbs. Next begin to add the milk a bit at a time. Stir well in-between each addition and keep on a medium heat. Once all the milk has been added continue to stir until the mixture starts to simmer. Remove from the heat and add the gorgonzola. Stir well until the cheese has fully melted.
At this point the sauce can be transferred to a sealable container and placed in the fridge along with your prepared sprouts. These will keep for at least 2 days if you want to get ahead of the game.
Baking the sprouts in cheese sauce
Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees
Place the prepared sprouts in a shallow baking dish - make sure the dish is large enough so they can be spread evenly in just one layer. Pour the sauce over the sprouts and then bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the sauce begins to brown on the top.
Remove from the oven and present your show stopper sprouts in the middle of your festive table :-)
