a) Preheat your oven to 200°C. Trim the Brussels sprouts and halve them through the root.
b) Pop the Brussels sprouts on to a baking tray and drizzle with oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
c) Roast on the top shelf of your oven until browned and tender, 18-20 mins. Turn halfway through. Meanwhile, roughly chop the hazelnuts.


a) When the sprouts have about 10 mins cooking time left, pop a medium frying pan on medium heat (no oil).
b) Once hot, add the hazelnuts and dry-fry, stirring regularly, until lightly toasted, 1-2 mins. TIP: Watch them like a hawk as they can burn easily.
c) Once toasted, remove to a bowl and set aside.


a) Pop your frying pan back on medium high heat. When hot add a drizzle of oil and the bacon lardons. Stir-fry until golden and crispy, 3-4 mins, then add the honey and 2 tbsp of water. TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min. Simmer until sticky, 1-2 mins, then remove from the heat.
b) Toss the roasted sprouts in the pan and mix them with the sticky honey bacon.
c) Serve in a large sharing bowl with a sprinkling of toasted hazelnuts. Enjoy!
