Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the sprouts and cook for 5 mins. Drain and refresh in cold water.
  2. Toss the sprouts with all the other ingredients in a bowl and season with a pinch of salt and a good grinding of black pepper. Tip onto a large baking tray in a single layer. Put in the oven and roast for 30 mins, tossing halfway through, until the bacon is crispy and the sprouts are golden and tender.

Great recipe, super-easy to make and very tasty indeed. Would go with any type of roast dinner but we particularly like it to accompany Venison Wellington.

This is so easy to do and my family said how nice it was! Amazing as they don't usually like sprouts! Will definitely make again.
