Creamed Brussels sprouts with crispy bacon Easy Food

Serves 12

200g pancetta or bacon lardons
80g butter
1.4kg Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
Salt and black pepper
500ml cream
3 tbsp lemon juice

  1. In a large pan over a medium-high heat, cook the lardons for 4-5 minutes until crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside, reserving the fat in the pan.
  2. In the same pan, melt the butter over a medium-high heat. Add the Brussels sprouts with some salt and black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 minutes until the sprouts are browned in spots.
  3. Pour in the cream and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid and simmer for 30-35 minutes until tender.
  4. Remove the lid and stir in the lemon juice. Allow the sprouts to simmer for another 4-5 minutes until the cream thickens and coats the sprouts. Season to taste with some salt and lots of black pepper, then serve.
