Bacon and Butter Brussels Sprouts


  • 1kg Brussel Sprouts
  • 2 Tbsp of good olive oil
  • 250g Streaky bacon (Cut into strips)
  • 80g Butter
  • 200g Crème fraîche
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Large cast iron or steel pan

Braaiing Instructions

  • Make a medium-hot fire and heat the pan. Add the bacon and the butter and sauté until the bacon is crispy.
  • Add the Brussels sprouts and toss them in the pan to coat with butter and bacon. Add seasoning to taste.

Pro Tip: You can precook the Brussels sprouts in a pot on the stove, this will cut the cooking time on the fire dramatically, but still add all the flavour of the fire.

  • Fry until the sprouts are soft and warm through. Serve immediately.
  • Dish into a serving plate, garnish with crème fraîche and enjoy!
