Christmas is coming! Brussel sprouts, love them or hate them? 2011.11.25

Hi all,

Its the age old complaint and comes from young and old. Do you love or hate brussel sprouts?

I personally love them and over the years have tried out many various recipes for serving them, my favourite of which is a simple way to serve them with bacon:

Brussell Sprouts with bacon

Prepare your sprouts and pop them into steam or boil for 20 – 30 mins (depending on how you like them)

Fry some bacon lardons with1 finely chopped onion and a couple of cloves of garlic. When all these ingredients are cooked through, add a knob of butter and a small amount of chopped fresh sage, tarrogan or parsley (depending on your taste).

Once the sprouts are cooked, toss them through and serve.

What do you think of brussel sprouts? Do you serve them to on Christmas day?

Have any good recipes you want to share?

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
