• 1 kg Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 50 g unsalted English butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 200 g shallots, sliced
  • 412 g Italian pancetta, cubed
  • 2 sprig of fresh thyme, leaves picked
  • 100 g blanched hazelnuts, roughly chopped


  1. 1

    Boil the sprouts for 3-4 minutes, until tender but firm. Drain and run under cold water, then place on a clean tea towel to absorb the excess water.

  2. 2

    Meanwhile, melt the butter and olive oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan. Add the shallots and gently cook for 5 minutes, then add the pancetta and thyme.

  3. 3

    Cook for a further 10 minutes, until beginning to crisp. Add the hazelnuts and sprouts to the pan, fry over a high heat for 2-3 minutes to heat through, then serve.
