Brussels are delicious when fried with bacon or pancetta. When you're busy in the kitchen at Christmas, this quick and flavourful side dish is a welcome time-saver.
You can substitute rashers of pancetta or streaky bacon for the pancetta cubes; simply dice them before cooking.
Delicious!! This recipe was easy and tasty. I used bacon instead of pancetta, and I cut away the excess fat. I also added one clove of garlic. This side was just fabulous! My new veg go to! - 19 Nov 2011

Used different ingredients. Possibly add some garlic just to make them monumental. I used 1 teaspoon of the Lazy Garlic. - 12 Dec 2010
