Hello friends. Today I have a Whirlpool’s microwave recipe to share with you.

Here is a recipe for a great vegetable dish to serve with your turkey on Christmas Day.

If vegetarians are coming for lunch you can omit the bacon.

Some people believe they don’t like the flavour of sprouts, but try this recipe and your guests are sure to love the flavour combinations of the bacon, chestnuts and sprout.

Cook this colourful dish on the Max crisp plate, to ensure your bacon is really crispy.

How To Make Bacon, Sprouts And Chestnuts With Vermouth:


250g prepared brussel sprouts, halved if quite large

150g smoked bacon lardons

1 small onion, finely chopped

150g ready prepared chestnuts, halved

1 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme

Black pepper, freshly ground

1 tbsp. dry vermouth

Bacon, Sprouts And Chestnuts With Vermouth Method:

1.) Place the prepared sprouts in a microwavable dish with four tbsp. water, cover, pierce and cook on 750W(jet), for three to four minutes.

2.) Pre-heat the crisp plate on the crisp function for two minutes. 

3.) When hot, add the bacon lardons and cook for four mins, turning occasionally.

5.) Remove the crisp plate from the Max M/W oven, add the onions and cook for a further two minutes on the crisp function.

6.) Finally add the chestnuts, thyme, black pepper, and vermouth.
