The combination of honey, ham and sprouts is just magical. Inspired by my favourite Czech writer once again!
Total Time: 30 minutes
150g smoked ham, sliced
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon of butter
A pinch of ground nutmeg
Sea salt and black ground pepper
Cook the Brussels Sprouts in salted hot boiling water for around 5-10 minutes. Depends on their size, I like them crunchy, not too soft, not too tough. Taste and taste. Then, place them quickly in ice-cold water and set aside. Cut them in half.
Sprinkle 1 side of each slice of ham with honey and bake it in a hot non sticking frying pan on high heat.
Firstly, place ham on the honey glaze and after 1 minute turn it to the other side. Set aside.
Melt the butter in the same frying pan and bake the sprouts until they are nicely golden. Stir in 1 tablespoon of honey, balsamic vinegar, a pinch of nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Stir gently until it caramelizes.
Makes 2 serves.
