Crispy Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Garlic

Apart from being ridiculously cheap and oh-so-pretty, brussels sprouts are very healthy too. If you like to eat them, you’re one lucky person.


  • 10 small brussel sprouts
  • 2 bacon rashers, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup (60ml) olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons rock salt, sea salt or “Kosher” salt
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Peel off any bad leaves from the brussel sprouts
  2. Bring a pot of water to the boil. Add rock salt.
  3. Blanch brussel sprouts for 4 minutes then drain and refresh in cold running water.
  4. Cut sprouts in half lengthwise.
  5. Heat olive oil on high. Add bacon and cook 1 minute.
  6. Add Brussels sprouts and fry until they start to brown around the edges and the bacon crisps.
  7. Add garlic slices and fry 1 minute until softened.
  8. Drain brussels sprouts to remove excess oil. Serve hot.
