If you’ve never tried brussel sprouts, or have always grown up thinking it was the grossest vegetable in the planet, this recipe will make you into a No. 1 brussel sprouts lover!
My husband never used to be a huge vegetable fan besides the usual peas and carrots, however this is his favourite vegetable dish (probably due to the bacon and butter)! He always requests this especially when brussel sprouts are in season in the colder months of the year. I have been making this for years, another ‘non-Thermomix’ dish, as I just love the crispy fried goodness of the garlic, onion and bacon with the brussel sprouts! I make this to go with dinner, but I have also made a double batch of this as a side dish for big family dinners or lunches.
