    Serves: 8 

    • 225g (8 oz) sliced streaky bacon
    • 60g (2 oz) butter

    1. Place bacon in a large, deep frying pan. Cook over medium-high heat until browned. Drain, reserving some of the bacon grease, and dice the bacon.
    2. In the same frying pan, melt butter with reserved bacon grease over medium heat. Add pine nuts, and cook, stirring until browned. Add Brussels sprouts and spring onions to the pan, and season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until sprouts are wilted and tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in bacon just before serving.


    You can use pancetta for this recipe instead of bacon.
