Unless you have been living under a rock for the last week you will have seen that Iceland is selling Marmite Sprouts as part of its 2018 Christmas range. Opinions of Brussels Sprouts are as diverse as Marmite, and this combo has got everyone one talking!

We featured them in our last Shopping Essentials post and people in our Facebook group were really excited about them!

Though it may sound like an odd combination, there is logic behind combining Marmite and sprouts.  The salty richness of the Marmite enhances the sweetness of the sprouts and really elevates this side dish!

However, if you love bacon with your sprouts you must try our Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon recipe!
