  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Combine brussels sprouts, sugar and marmalade in a large bowl. Season. Arrange evenly over the lined tray. Roast, turning occasionally, for 40 mins or until brussels sprouts are tender and caramelised.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a medium frying pan over medium heat for 5 mins or until crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.
  3. Step 3

    Place the brussels sprout mixture in a serving bowl. Sprinkle with the bacon and hazelnut to serve.

    Serve withflat-leaf parsley leaves.

    Swap me: For a meat-free side, omit the bacon and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.

    Nut know-how: For the best flavour, toast hazelnuts on a baking tray at 180°C for 10 mins, then rub off any skins with a clean tea towel before chopping.
