Amazing Brussels Sprouts Recipe for 2023


Islifearecipe.net will now share one of the most amazing Brussels Sprouts recipes of all time. Are you ready?

Amazing Brussels Sprouts Recipe: this is one of the recipes that I adore. I have had many people ask for the recipe too, which is always a good sign, including my mate Ruthers this month. You will love this too if you are a Sprouts fan. It is savoury, spicy, and bacon-intense. In fact almost like the British classic, Bubble and Squeak. Bring on the heart attack, this is a cracker.

I am going to make a very bold statement here and say that this recipe is way, way better than the Globally known Chef Daniel Boulud (am I being as arrogant as he is now?) offering on his menu at DB Bistro. Check this IsLifeaRecipe.net blog of his restaurant; HERE.

Amazing Brussels Sprouts
Be still my aching heart… Yummo!!!

You will need: to make a huge sharing plate of Amazing Brussels Sprouts;

  • 2 Kg washed and cleaned sprouts,
  • 5 roughly chopped red onions,
  • 3 finely chopped chili padi,
  • 2 packs of bacon bits, or lardons,
  • 3 tablespoons of finely chopped garlic,
  • Goose fat, and
  • Sea salt, and cracked Kampot black pepper.

Really easy, but do it this way for really really good results. This is the best folks;

  • Fill a large pan with water, whack in some salt, and all the cleaned sprouts, and bring it to a boil,
  • Reduce that and let it simmer for 5 minutes or so: you are NOT cooking until mushy. More like blanching,
  • Drain them and set aside,
  • Take your biggest, heavy fry pan and put in a few good glugs of goose fat, and get on the heat,
  • In with the onions, bacon, garlic, and chilli and sweat that down – keep moving it around to avoid burning,
  • When the bacon starts to brown you are ready to add in 1/3 of your drained sprouts,
  • Worth noting here that there will be loads of oil from the goose fat and bacon. That will all be absorbed soon,
  • Lower the heat and have those sprouts get really cooked down, and absorb the oils and flavours,
  • Use a potato masher to squish them all up,
  • Add in the remaining 2/3 of sprouts and stir through to warm them all up for about 5 minutes,
  • Give another good pinch of sea salt, and cracked Kampot black pepper to your taste, and
  • Serve up in a big bowl.

This really is a cracking dish. Everyone seems to love this. This recipe reminds me of home, with Sunday roasts, and breakfast the day after. With the chili padi twist, it also brings us back to where we live now. Amazing Brussels Sprouts really is a cracking recipe.

I have tried to wind back to when I first made it, and I am not sure on that front when it actually was. Who cares, here is the recipe for you. I wonder if this could become a ChillaxBBQ addition too, I can’t see why not, I did this today on the BBQ. Have a go folks, I just know you will – ENJOY!!!

Why Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Chilli: AKA Amazing Brussels Sprouts?

Brussels sprouts with bacon and chili is a flavourful and savoury side dish that combines the earthy taste of Brussels sprouts with the smoky richness of bacon and the spicy kick of chili. This dish is perfect for those who enjoy a little heat and a burst of flavour in their vegetable dishes.

The recipe typically involves roasting halved Brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, and pepper until they become tender and slightly crispy. Meanwhile, bacon is cooked separately until it becomes crispy, and chili flakes are added to infuse the dish with spice and warmth.

The combination of bacon and chili adds depth and complexity to the dish, making it a delightful accompaniment to various main courses. The sweetness of the roasted Brussels sprouts balances out the savoury bacon and the heat from the chili flakes, creating a harmonious blend of flavors. See what I mean? How can you resist Amazing Brussels Sprouts?
