This is a great way of using up leftover sprouts. Just add them to fried bacon and crushed potatoes and you've got the ultimate comfort food for the day after the night before!

Potato and Brussels sprout crush recipe




  • 650g potatoes, chopped into quarters
  • 6 rashers back bacon, finely diced
  • 250g Brussels sprouts, shredded
  • Oil for frying
  • Ground black pepper


1 Place the potatoes in a large pan of water and bring to the boil then simmer for 8-10 minutes or until tender.

2 Fry the bacon in a frying pan with a dash of oil till crisp then remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Then tip the shredded sprouts into the same pan and stir until wilted and tender.

3 Once the potatoes are done, drain them and roughly crush them with a potato masher or a fork. Tip in the bacon and potato into the frying pan with the sprouts, over a low heat season with black pepper and stir to combine making sure you incorporate any meaty bits from the bottom of the pan.
