Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

The perfect side to accompany a Sunday lunch or even Christmas dinner. Transform the sprout into a naturally gluten and wheat free side dish that will sparkle alongside the meat and roasties.


  • 4 rashers of thick-cut smoked back bacon - chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 500g Brussel sprouts - halved
  • ½ large onion - chopped

In a dry large pan, fry the bacon over a medium to high heat until crispy. Remove to a plate, lined with kitchen paper. In the same pan with the bacon fat, melt the butter and add the onions and sprouts and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sprouts are golden in colour, around 8 to 10 minutes.

Season with salt and black pepper and then add the bacon back to the pan and serve.
