My Kids Love Stir Fried Sprouts, Bacon and Chestnuts

This is in the latest issue of the Good Food magazine. I gave it to my girls with their dinner today and they just couldn't get enough! They both asked for more. I didn't have chestnuts but it works just as well without. It's actually a great recipe for Christmas.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Gently fry the bacon in a large frying pan for 10 minutes until the fat has come out and the bacon is nice and crispy.
  2. Throw in the chestnuts and fry until they are all coated in bacon fat; Add the garlic and cook for a minute until golden and add the sprouts; Turn up the heat and stir fry for 1 minute.
  3. Pour over the stock and cook for 10 minutes or until the sprouts are cooked to your liking; Add the lemon zest and soy sauce, cook for 1 more minute and serve.
  4. NOTE: It took me a lot less time to cook because I fried the bacon on a higher heat and the sprouts took much less than 10 minutes maybe because I hadn't sliced them thickly enough.
