    It's always good to have a few brussels sprouts recipes and this one is worth the effort. It combines Brussels sprouts with bacon and pine nuts.

    Serves: 8 

    • 225g bacon rashers
    • 60g butter
    • 90g pine nuts
    • 1 kg Brussels sprouts, cored and sliced
    • 3 spring onions, minced
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Place bacon in a large, deep frying pan. Cook over medium-high heat until browned. Drain, reserving some of the bacon fat, and dice the bacon.
    2. In the same frying pan, melt butter with reserved bacon grease over medium heat. Add pine nuts and cook, stirring until browned. Add Brussels sprouts and spring onions to the pan, and season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until sprouts are wilted and tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in bacon just before serving.


    You can use pancetta for this recipe instead of bacon.

    Used different ingredients. Halved recipe. Used 3 slices pre-cooked bacon, 1 tsp. butter (for flavour) & 2-3 Tbsp. olive oil (since didn't have much bacon grease). Subbed pecans for pine nuts. Did not core, just trimmed ends before shredding. I like the flavour of roasted sprouts, so after cooking in a frypan, I finished cooking by roasting sprouts in the oven (200 degreesC-15 min.) to give that "nutty" flavour. Everyone really enjoyed & will be making again soon! - 29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I've never made brussels sprouts before, but this recipe was totally easy and yummy! I did skip adding the pine nuts(as they are not my fave), and only cut the sprouts in halves. Also, I added bread crumbs to the topping of bacon. I served this dish for Thanksgiving, and EVERYONE LOVED 'em. - 29 Sep 2008


    I didn't find this recipes time intensive at all. I used my food processor to shred the sprouts and it worked great. Once the bacon was cooked, it went very quickly. Excellent recipe!!! Rave reviews and request for recipe by all!!!! - 29 Sep 2008
