• 1 kg Brussels sprouts, outer leaves removed, trimmed and halved
  • 50 g butter
  • 100 g breadcrumbs
  • 200 g cooked chestnuts, finely chopped
  • 28 g pack flat-leaf parsley, chopped


  1. 1

    Cook the Brussels sprouts in a large pan of boiling salted water until just tender. Drain and keep warm in a serving bowl.

  2. 2

    Melt the butter in a pan, add the breadcrumbs and chestnuts and cook, stirring, until the crumbs are golden. Add the parsley; season and stir. Scatter the mixture over the sprouts. Serve.


    Get ahead: prepare the sprouts (and make the breadcrumbs, if necessary) the night before.
