Remove the outer layer of the Brussels Sprouts and cut a cross in the bottom of each one. Only cut down a few milimetres.
Bring a pan of water to the boil and add the sprouts in.
Cook for 5 minutes until a knife can easily slice in.
Remove from the heat and plunge into cold water to stop them cooking. Allow to cool and remove them from the water and pop into a bowl until you need them.
Thinly slice the slices of bacon.
In a frying pan melt a table spoon of butter on a low to medium heat. Add the Brussels Sprouts, crushed garlic clove and a small pinch of salt and allow to warm up.
Add in the bacon and stir into the Brussels Sprouts.
Cook for a few minutes until the Brussels Sprouts are warm and the bacon has cooked. Serve straight away.
