Ten brussel sprouts recipe to use up that surplus bag  lurking in the fridge

If you like Brussels sprouts, as I do, you may have bought too many for Christmas Day and have plenty left in the fridge. We both love sprouts just steamed, but there are plenty of other ways to enjoy them, either raw or cooked. So if you’re looking for a brussel sprouts recipe to use up that bag of bargain veg – look no further!

Bubble and Squeak

The first and most obvious way is in bubble and squeak. Take a few cooked sprouts and chop them into quarters, add a couple of roasties, chopped small, mash in a few cooked carrots and parsnips. Squidge everything together and shape into patties. Fry gently on each side until crispy, use some turkey fat, or perhaps some goose fat, for extra flavour if you have it. Top with a dollop of cranberry sauce or chutney

I’ve been googling today for inspiration and have found some lovely sounding ideas.

A few sprouts work well in soup, but don’t do as I did one year and use loads, the after affects were dire!
