Splendid Sprouts with Bacon

It wouldn’t be a Christmas dinner without sprouts!

Makes approximately 4 servings

Preparation time is approximately 5 minutes

Cooking time is approximately 15 minutes


350g Brussels sprouts, chopped in half

20g butter

50g pancetta cubes or 4 slices bacon chopped

Splash of white wine or other liquor

Salt & pepper


1. Peel the sprouts and cut in half

2. Add the butter to the frying pan on a medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until crispy.

3. Add the sprouts and a splash of white wine

4. Stir and cook until soft but not mushy.

If you don’t like sprouts why not use green beans instead? These are also delicious mixed with bacon.



· No need to score a cross in the bottom – it just makes them soggy!

· If you boil them - keep your eye on the cooking time. Don’t go over eight minutes!

· Roasted sprouts taste completely different to those that are boiled or steamed, it makes them sweeter! Try roasting them with some chestnuts and bacon for added yum!
