  • 500g Brussels sprouts, prepared
  • 25g butter, plus extra to serve
  • 75ml double cream
  • Fresh sage, to garnish (optional)


  1. Put the sprouts in a large pan of salted water, bring to the boil, then cover until the water comes back up to the boil. Uncover and cook for 5-6 minutes, until the sprouts are tender.
  2. In a small pan, melt the butter with the cream over a low heat. Drain the sprouts, then whizz in a food processor with the butter, cream and a pinch of pepper.
  3. Spoon into a serving dish, add a knob of butter and garnish with sage.
  • If you’re making this mash in advance, just heat it up briskly in an uncovered dish – prolonged covered heat will make the sprouts dull in colour. But it’s also a great lifesaver if you overcook your Brussels on the day itself.
