Seasonal roasted sprouts
It’s not Christmas dinner without sprouts. Our roast sprouts recipe can win round even the harshest of critics.
- 750g medium sprouts, trimmed and outer leaves removed
- ½ chopped onion
- 250ml chicken stock
- 3-4 rashers of diced bacon
- 1 finely chopped clove of garlic
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- A knob of butter
Preheat oven to 200°C/180 fan/gas mark 6
In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil and butter and gently cook the bacon and garlic, taking care not to burn the garlic.
Do not cook the bacon all the way through, as you will finish your dish in the oven.
Add the chopped onion and cook until clear.
Add the sprouts and stock. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Transfer the sprouts to a 2-3 inch roasting tray, lined with foil, and spread out evenly.
Cook sprouts and bacon for 20 mins, until crispy. Turn sprouts over halfway through to ensure even cooking.
