Brussels Sprout Recipe Header

Great for Boxing Day Breakfast or Brunch

Cabbage and bacon is a popular Irish dish at any time of year. This twist on the idea uses the XXL Krakauer Bacon Frankfurter instead of bacon or pork belly, and the finer more delicate shredded Brussel Sprout instead of cabbage, to make an outstanding breakfast or brunch option. Pairs with a perfectly poached egg to make the ultimate post-Christmas snack.

Egg’s Sausage, Egg & Sprouts Recipe

We teamed up with Comedian and Cook, Snack Hacker George Egg, to work out the best way to use extra Brussels Sprouts this Xmas.

Leftover Brussel Sprouts Recipe

If you have more sprouts than you know what to do with this Christmas, then this is a great Boxing Day Breakfast or Brunch for you to try at home. One tip – if you like your sprouts with more crunch, then we recommend setting aside some fresh ones for this dish. Your precooked leftovers from Xmas dinner will work just as well, but are likely to prove a lot softer in your pan and just need to be heated through.

Burnt Brussels

Using precooked leftover sprouts but still want crunch? Just add a bit more oil and fry for a bit longer to get your Brussels Sprout Hash nice and crispy. Be careful not to let it burn though, as burnt brussels on Boxing Day are never the ideal outcome. This said, we know there are a substantial minority of people who actually prefer burnt crispy bits in their breakfasts, and to you we say good luck. It takes all types, don’t it?
