Yields2 ServingsPrep Time25 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time35 minsCategory


 1 tbsp Crystal Sugar
 1 tbsp Butter
 125 g Bacon
 500 g Brussels Sprouts



Cut off the ends and remove the outer leafs of the Brussels sprouts. Plus, wash them. Boil them in boiling water with a pinch of salt for approx. 5 minutes or until they are tender. Remove them from the heat and set them aside.


Peal the apple and cut it into small squares.


Cut the bacon into small stripes and cook them in a frying pan (without butter) until they are nice and crispy.


Get rid of the “bacon vet”. Add half of the butter and heat up the Brussels sprouts in it. Spice it up by adding some nutmeg, salt and pepper.


Put the rest of the butter into another frying pan. Add the apple pieces and heat it up for a 3-5 minutes. After that sprinkle it with the sugar and let it lightly caramelise.


Mix the Brussels sprouts with the bacon and apple. Serve it immediately with some nice boiled potatoes.
