This is a terrifically tasty side dish to serve when you want warming up in autumn or winter. It’s also a way of getting people – be they friends or family – who don’t much like Brussels sprouts – which get their name as they were first grown, on a large scale, in Belgium – to eat them as, cooked and served this way, with chestnuts and bacon, they taste a whole lot better than some people find them served on their own!


  • 320g frozen button Brussels sprouts
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 100g rindless back bacon, cut into strips
  • 200g pkt cooked, peeled and ready to use whole chestnuts
  • freshly ground black pepper

There’s no need to add salt to this dish as the bacon will make it salty enough.


  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the sprouts for 3-5 mins until just tender. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook the bacon strips until crispy (this takes about 5 mins). Add the chestnuts with the drained sprouts (be careful as they will splatter at first) and stir fry for 3-5 mins until the sprouts are tender and the chestnuts are heated through. Season with pepper and serve.
