Brussels Sprouts Recipes For Christmas

Top tips before you start on the sprouts:

  1. Don't cross
    Don’t cross the bottoms - this is an old wives’ tale and it makes them go soggy.
  2. Quick cook
    The secret is to drop them in cold water after boiling to prevent them over-cooking.
  3. Add flavour 
    Fry them up with bacon or pancetta (see below) for delicious pan-cooked sprouts.
