Parmesan and pancetta sprouts
A nice twist if you're planning on making Brussels sprouts for the Christmas dinner.

2 tbsp butter

2 cloves garlic, minced

450g frozen Brussels Sprouts

300g pancetta, cubed

50g Parmesan

Juice of half a lemon

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and add the garlic. Cook for one minute and add the Brussels sprouts (using pre-prepared will save you precious times). Cook for a further 2 minutes and then add the pancetta.

Fry the mixture for 2-3 minutes, taking it off the heat before the pancetta browns.

Remove from the pan and place in an oven dish. Squeeze the lemon juice over the mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the sprouts are soft and slightly browned.
