buttered bacon brussel sprouts

The idea behind this recipe was inspired from my meal at Swine & Co, in Sydneyย and my visit to the US. They do a lot of deep fried brussel sprouts there! I wanted to do something similar for Christmas but it had to be quick and easy. I didn’t do a test run before Christmas, all I knew is that I wanted the brussel sprouts to be cooked in butter and bacon fat until the sprouts was blistered and brown. I wanted to create the illusion that they were deep fried by cooking the sprouts inย bacon fat and butter. Then I wanted to top it off with crunchy bits of bacon to have the texture of crackling.ย This turned out really well and it was such a delicious way to enjoy brussel sprouts that I had to share!

Enjoy! x

I am going to share with you a ridiculously easy sticky date pudding recipe that I have found and slightly adjusted. I tested it out on some dinner guests and they absolutely raved about it. It is perfect for the winter months and for a stress free dessert when you are having guests pop round. It is that easy! Batter and sauce can be prepared earlier and also be frozen for a later date. So you can still have that fresh baked feel and your guests will be none the wiser.ย The result is a deliciously moist pudding with a gloriously hot, sticky and buttery sauce. Go on and give it a whirl!
