Indeed, I love brussel sprouts. I just found this recipe and I can't wait to score some pancetta to get my brussels on. This is perfect winter food, and I'm glad the boys refuse to eat them because then there is more for me and hubby. Damn the grams in this recipe. I need a translation.
From the Blog: Sweet Paul
500 g brussels sprouts, cleaned and cut in half
200 g pancetta, cubed
2 tablespoons olive oil
50 g almonds
Heat the oven to 200C, 380F.
Place brussels sprouts, pancetta, oil and almonds in an oven proof baking dish.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the brussels sprouts are al dente and the pancetta is golden.
You need to stir every 5 minutes so that the fat from the pancetta covers the sprouts.
Take it out, taste with salt and pepper.
