  • 4 oz pancetta
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 lbs brussels sprouts stemmed and halved
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg optional


  • Brown pancetta in a large saucepan over high heat until fat is rendered, for about 5 minutes. Remove pancetta from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving the grease in the pan.
  • Melt butter in the saucepan, once hot add onion and garlic and saute until soft, about 4 minutes.
  • Add brussels sprouts, chicken stock, salt and pepper. Bring chicken stock to a boil, reduce heat down to low and then cover. Cook for about 10 minutes until brussels are fork tender.
  • Uncover and stir in cream and nutmeg (if using). Turn heat back to high and cook until liquid is reduced and thickened, for approximately 5 minutes. Add cooked pancetta, season with salt and pepper to taste, then stir and serve.
