Hot Plate! Two Fat Radish Recipes

Despite the overwhelming food possibilities in NYC, there are some stand-out eateries that keep us coming back bite after bite, meal after meal, season after season. Lower-lower East Side's Fat Radish is one of those spots synonymous with rustic cool by way of decadent dishes that are both filling and fresh. So, we got the inside scoop (wrap, roll, and seasoning) on two of their best Thanksgiving side dish recipes. Ahead, celery root pot pie that will have all the relatives asking your secret ingredient, and the brussels sprouts you won't be able to stop eating — don't say we didn't warn you.

Deviled Brussels Sprouts
Devil Glaze
1 quart apple cider
1 pint cranberry juice
1 tbsp chili flakes
2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
To a sauce pot, add apple cider and cranberry juice. Place over medium heat and reduce by 1/4.
Add chili flakes and chili sauce, reduce by another 1/4, or until sauce is thick.
Remove from heat and cool.
Brussels Sprouts
36 medium to large brussels sprouts
18 strips of bacon
Clean brussels sprouts. Cook in boiling, salted water until just tender. Remove and place in ice bath to prevent over cooking. Remove from ice bath and wrap each brussels sprout in 1/2 strip of bacon. Place wrapped brussels sprouts on a sheet tray. Glaze each piece with sauce. Bake in 350 degree over for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and glaze again. Serve.
