Brussels sprouts and bacon fried rice

15th December 2021

Sprouts can be divisive but here's a dish to take your brussels in a novel direction - give 'em a stir fry! 



  • Approx 150g brussels sprouts - very finely chopped
  • 1.5 cups brown rice (cooked and allowed to cool)
  • 4 rashers of streaky bacon (chopped)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1-2 tbsps of soy sauce
  • few sliced spring onions
  • toasted sesame oil
  • 2-4 eggs
  • chilli and garlic paste (for serving)

(Serves two)



1) I poach my eggs ahead of time (I favour a soft, runny yolk) and set aside.

2) Add bacon to a wok or heavy-based frying pan and fry until crispy.

3) Stir fry the sprouts for 5-6 mins until the sprouts are softened. Add the garlic.

4) Add in the rice, the spring onions, the soy sauce and the sesame oil. Continue cooking, adding a touch more oil if required, until the rice is heated through, and if preferred, a touch crispy.

5) Serve with the poached egg on top and finish with a liitle chilli and garlic paste. Devour!
