Sprout gratin

As one of the most controversial Christmas food, we decided to give an alternative way to jazz up the little green fellas!

Ingredients:

  • 900g Brussels sprouts, trimmed and crossed
  • 20g butter
  • 150g rindless back bacon, cut into lardons
  • 20g flaked almonds
  • 400ml double cream
  • 2 ½ tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 5 ½ tbsp fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 200°c. Place butter into a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the bacon and almonds and sauté for 3-4 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Add the sprouts and sauté for a further 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Add the cream and bring the mixture to the boil. Boil for 2-4 minutes until the cream has reduced to a thick sauces. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Remove from the heat. Add the lemon juice and spoon into an ovenproof dish.
  • Mix the breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese together in a bowl then sprinkle evenly over the top of the sprout mixture.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 20 minutes, until the top is golden and the cream visibly boiling.
  • Remove and serve straight from the dish.
