Ingredients

  • 750g brussels sprouts, trimmed and outer leaves discarded
  • 16 streaky bacon rashers
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Good knob of butter

Method

  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil. Add the sprouts and boil for 3-4 minutes or until nearly tender. Drain, refresh in cold water, then drain again and cut in half.
  2. Using the back of a knife, stretch each rasher of bacon to about double its length. Cut each rasher in half, then roll them up tightly.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the bacon rolls, turning occasionally until crisp. Drain off most of the excess oil, then add the knob of butter and the sprouts to the pan and toss well to warm the sprouts for a few minutes. Season with black pepper and serve.
