The ultimate Brussels sprouts and bacon dinner

I know so many people who do not like Brussels sprouts, I love them. Brussels sprouts are best when eaten young and tender and with bacon and butter.

The only thing that could improve on them is to have spectacular bacon and tonight I had pork rashers. Pork rashers aren’t exactly bacon but they are pork and they do have a lot of fat. In my mind pork rashers are a great bacon substitute. I mean who doesn’t like fat with their pork.

The smooth creamy avocado went nicely with the tender juicy pork rasher and offset nicely the gentle sweet bitterness of the Brussels sprouts.

This is an incredibly quick and easy meal for one. While the food is in the oven you can put the washing on and do some tidying up.

On a cold Canberra night, this is a great simple meal to keep you full and happy.

    1. I’m lazy and to save on washing up, I roast them with whatever else is in the oven, otherwise I’m with you. Steaming is good.
