  • 500 g brussel sprouts
  • 9 rashers streaky bacon
  • 45 g unsalted butter
  • 10 g rapeseed oil
  • 70 g maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  • Separate and lay the bacon on a paper towel on a microwavable plate. Microwave for 6 minutes (900w) or until crispy. Leave to cool.
  • Remove the stalks from the sprouts, halve and remove the outer leaf. Set aside.
  • Once cooled, finely chop the bacon into small pieces and set aside.
  • Add the butter and oil to a large pan or wok and heat on medium. When the butter has completely melted and is starting to froth, add the sprouts. Cook in the pan on a medium-high heat for around 10-12 minutes until they’re starting to become golden.
  • Add the maple syrup, salt and pepper and half the bacon into the pan and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Decant into a bowl and top with the rest of the bacon bits. Enjoy!
