What a shame that we only really eat the marvellous sprouts with pancetta and chestnuts combo around Christmas. The combination would bring a roast pork dish to life at any time when sprouts are growing, or make the basis for a delicious, warming pasta or gnocchi number.
But of course, Christmas is when we typically bring together brussel sprouts with pancetta, aiming to add a meaty, salty bite to the sulphurous sprout, and sweetening the whole thing with the roasted chestnuts. For that reason, this recipe is a rich, jubilant celebration of the green, the brown and the pigly.
In the version below, we’ve made onion and garlic optional. Some people like their Christmas flavours unadulterated, so decide for yourself whether onion belongs only in stuffing, and if garlic is invited to Christmas lunch/dinner.
