Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Chestnuts

Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta and Chestnuts

I was going through some photos when came across this one of brussels sprouts, pancetta and chestnuts. I made this a while ago when I made some roasted chestnuts. I was looking for some recipes using chestnuts an I found a few for brussels sprouts and chestnuts. Given that they are both in season at the same time it is not so surprising that they would used together. I had also been looking for some brussels sprouts recipes so this one made it to my meal plan right away. It was pretty good. The slightly sweet chestnuts went well with the saltiness of pancetta and brightened up the brussels sprouts nicely.

Ingredients:
1 pound brussels sprouts (trimmed and cleaned)
1 teaspoon oil
2 ounces pancetta (chopped)
2 ounces roasted chestnuts (chopped)

Directions:
1. Boil the brussels sprouts in water until just tender, about 5 minutes.
2. Heat the oil in a pan.
3. Add the pancetta and saute until just crispy, about 5-7 minutes.
4. Add the chestnuts and saute until warm.
5. Add the brussels sprouts and toss to coat.

This is similar to a recipe I just pulled from the NY Times, but theirs has a brown butter sauce and no pancetta. I'll have to try both and compare. Thanks for the recipe!

Oo, great minds think alike. I just bought Brussels sprouts, bacon and chestnuts, with the idea of likely combining them. So obviously - looks good!

Just out of curiosity….Do you know where I can purchase good quality foods online? I am now trying to order from online stores only because of various reasons…….can you help me with any suggestions??????

There is only one place, out of all that I have tried that really stood out for true quailty, and that is Celebrityfoods.

If you can help me grow my list of quality services or stores, where I can buy my food, I would greatly appreciate it.
