Ingredients
Ingredients

Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a side dish

2 rashers streaky bacon

30g butter

220g Brussels sprouts, washed and finely shredded

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 tbsp chopped parsley

80ml double cream

Squeeze of lemon juice

Handful of grated parmesan

Preheat the oven to 220ºC.

Slice the bacon into thin strips and fry in a small pan until crisp and golden. Tip out onto kitchen paper and keep to one side.

Melt the butter in a frying pan or small saucepan and once foaming, tip in the shredded Brussels sprouts (we find that using a mandolin is the most effective way to finely spread the sprouts, however a good knife will work too). Cook over a moderate heat for 2 minutes, stirring frequently, before adding the garlic, parsley and some salt and pepper. Turn the heat down slightly and continue to cook for 8-10 minutes until the sprouts have wilted and softened.

Pour in the double cream and turn the heat up until the cream starts to bubble. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the cream has reduced and thickened. Stir the crispy bacon through the mixture, add a little lemon juice to taste and then tip into a small gratin dish.

Top with the grated parmesan and bake at the top of the oven for 10 minutes or until the top of the gratin is golden.
