Christmas Sprouts!

With Chestnuts and Bacon

55 Minutes

Serves 6

What you'll need…

  • 500g Brussels sprouts
  • 100g Roasted chestnuts
  • 3 Rashers of bacon
  • 1 Onion
  • Small bunch of sage
  • Olive oil
  • Knob of butter

The method


Peel and finely chop the onions and then remove the sage leaves from the stem and chop finely.


Place a pan over a high heat and chop your bacon into thick strips. Add to the pan with a drizzle of olive oil, turn down the heat.


Cook for a few minutes until cooked, ensure your chestnuts are peeled and then crumble the chestnuts into the pan.


Fry for around 5 minutes until golden, then add in the onions and sage. Turn down the heat to low and cook slowly for around half and hour.


While they are cooking, prep your sprouts by removing any tatty leaves, chop any large sprouts in half.


Place the sprouts into a saucepan on a high heat for a few minutes. Once the pan is hot, pour over boiling, salted water. Boil for 5 minutes or until tender (slightly al dente).


Remove from the heat and drain, stir through the bacon/chestnut mixture. Add in the butter and season to your liking. Enjoy!
