I love this receipe - so easy to make and tastes delicious. It's a little salty because of the pancetta, but I like it that way. This went down a treat at christmas :)

Can anyone tell me how far in advance can you make this recipe for it to keep and serve for Christmas Dinner?

Fantastic recipe for brussel lovers! I have to make this most weekends with my roast now as it goes down so well. A word of warning, if you use smaller quantities of brussels don't reduce the amount of stock or they just won't cook in time! Also works really well with sliced leeks if you fancy a change.

Beware! I made this for Christmas and kept on nibbling until I wasn't hungry anymore for the turkey dinner! If you make this, don't prepare ahead for that very same reason, or lock it up somewhere. Absolutely delicious.
