Brussels Sprouts Love Them or Hate Them?

Whilst wandering around the supermarket trying to decide what vegetables to put with our roast dinner last weekend, I spotted brussels sprouts. Now this vegetable is a bit like marmite, you either love it or you hate it, there doesn't seem to be an inbetween. These are my favourite vegetable!! Daddy Hazelden however, is not their number one fan but I dislike having to cook lots of different veggies.



A couple of years ago my mum and I came across a lovely recipe from Jamie Oliver that made brussels sprouts that little bit more appealing, he called them brussels with hustle. Even Daddy Hazelden will tell you that these are delicious. To make it my own, I added a bit of onion to it.

Ingredients

Brussels Sprouts
Streaky Bacon
1/2 an Onion
Sage of Rosemary
Worcester Sauce
Butter for cooking
Olive oil

Cooking

* Chop the brussels up finely
* Put olive oil and a knob of butter into a pan and heat
* Place in the bacon, onion and herbs and fry for a few minutes
* Add the brussels and a splash of water, put the lid on and fry for a further 4 minutes
* Then add another knob of butter and worcester sauce (as much as you like) mix and serve



You can make as much or as little as you like depending on how many brussels and rashers of bacon you use. You can even save some and reheat it the next day, even better flavour!!

  7. I think I might have to try this recipe with some fake meat. I just love Brussels Sprouts anyway, as soon as it starts to get colder I start to eat them by the bucket load, always with bread sauce and gravy. I'm regretting not picking them up last night now.
