Brussel Sprouts 'Carbonara'

Carole's Chatter: Brussel Sprouts 'Carbonara'

I know Brussel Sprouts are good for you.  But I have had difficulty with the taste.  This time I've found a way to enjoy them courtesy of some naughty ingredients.  I'll be doing it again.


Brussel Sprouts
Crispy onions (store bought)
Parmesan cheese
Parsley for garnish


Halve the sprouts and cook them for 5 minutes in boiling water.

Then refresh them with cold water – important to stop them cooking on. Drain the liquid away and let them sit.

Cook your bacon – I cut it up into little pieces first but you could do that after if you likes.

Pour the cooked bacon and bacon fat over the sprouts.  Add your cream and pepper plus ½ a cup or so of grated parmesan.  Heat it all gently.

Garnish with chopped parsley.  Yummo!
