Walnut Sprouts and Bacon

Serves 4
800g Brussels sprouts
salt and pepper
50g walnut halves
1 tbsp oil
100g bacon
sugar

Clean and wash the sprouts and cut a cross in the ends. Cook in boiling salted water for 4-5 mins. Drain the sprouts and leave to dry off. Chop up the walnut halves if preferred, or leave as they are. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Stir-fry the bacon for 3-4 mins until crispy; add the sprouts and walnuts and cook for a further 2-3 mins. Season with salt, pepper and a little sugar, and serve.
