I  gave one of the Bacon sides from recently to a close friend of mine and he made this from some of it! Looks yummy, eh? 馃榾

He took the recipe from here (english translation below), but he recommends to leave out the butter for more crispiness. I’m glad he liked it!

Ingredients (serves 2):

500 g Brussels sprouts
50 g Bacon, cut into strips
150 g chestnuts, (vacuum packed)
2 tsp. Butter
1 pinch Sugar
Salt and Pepper to taste


Clean the brussels sprouts, removing the outer leaves and cutting the larger ones in half. Cook them in boiling, salted water for 8-10 mins. until tender, then drain well and set aside.

Cut the bacon into thin strips, and halve the lager chestnuts. In a pan without additional fat, fry the bacon until crisp. Add the butter and a pinch of sugar as well as the chestnuts. Cook along with the bacon for about 2 minutes.

Add in the cooked brussels sprouts, toss, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
