Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Serves: 12


  • 1  ACE Bakery® White Baguette
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tbsp. grainy Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp.  fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper
  • Pinch hot pepper flakes
  • 1/2 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries, divided
  • 3/4 cup smooth ricotta cheese
  • 2 tbsp. toasted pine nuts
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. flaked sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Arrange baguette slices in a single layer on baking sheet; bake, turning halfway through, for 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together canola oil, mustard, thyme, garlic, salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes; toss with Brussels sprouts until well coated. Spread in even layer on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; roast for about 15 minutes or until tender and browned around edges. Let cool slightly.
  3. Gently fold 3 tbsp. dried cranberries into ricotta; spread over toasted baguette slices. Top with roasted Brussels sprouts. Garnish with remaining dried cranberries and pine nuts. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve immediately.

Tip: For added richness and a touch of smoky flavour, chop two slices of thick-cut bacon and roast along with the Brussels sprouts.
