Comments Off on Brussel Sprouts with Chestnuts Bacon

You either love them, or you can’t stand the sight of them. They, I think, are delicious; not only are they good for the real Christmas lunch, but they are an absolute must for Boxing Day bubble and squeak. This is one of only 2 vegetables that I recommend to be slightly overcooked, and the other is potatoes. They can be prepared the day before ready for cooking.

Ingredients
 

  • 700 g sprouts, tightly closed and brilliant green, trimmed
  • 4 rashers streaky bacon, cut into fine strips
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped finely
  • 200 g vac-packed chestnuts, broken up slightly
  • 1 pinch salt and freshly milled black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Cook the sprouts in plenty of boiling water until soft in the centre, slightly overcooked, about 10 minutes.
  • Cool under cold water, then drain really well. This can be done a few hours or even the day before.
  • Next, heat a non-stick frying pan.
  • Add the bacon and onions and cook for 15-20 minutes. There will be enough fat from the bacon to cook the onions perfectly.
  • Meanwhile, cut the Brussels into quarters, add to the bacon and onion, and mix well.
  • Cook for 15 minutes.
  • Finally, add the chestnuts and really mix well. You probably only need pepper, as the salt will come from the bacon.
