Ingredients

  • 800g brussels sprouts, trimmed, large ones halved
  • 3 eating apples (we used cox), cored and cut into thick wedges
  • Olive oil for roasting
  • A few fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 140g unsmoked pancetta cubes

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan/ gas 6. Cook the sprouts in a pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes to soften a little. Drain in a colander, then leave for a minute to dry out.
  2. Toss the sprouts with the apples and olive oil in a large roasting tin (they need enough room to really spread out). Scatter over the rosemary and pancetta. Roast for 30-35 minutes, stirring halfway through, until the sprouts and apples are tender and the pancetta is crisp. Serve.

  1. If you’re serving this for vegetarians, replace the pancetta with chopped macadamia nuts.

  2. Blanch the sprouts (step 1) 12 hours ahead, cool under cold running water, then drain. Cover with damp kitchen paper and keep in the fridge.
