Heat oil in a roasting dish, add a diced onion and some smoked speck, when the onions are translucent, add the sprouts shake the tin to get them all coated in oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Put into the oven along with the roast.
We served it with red cabbage and potato dumplings.
Red cabbage see the hairy bikers recipe.
The day prior cook 400g of floury potatoes in salted water, pour off water, cover and allow to dry overnight.
Add this to the raw potato mixture (it is here that you will find out if you need to add anymore flour). Salt and pepper to taste.
So that is about it, other than carve the frischlng, pour your already opened bottle of good wine, we had a very nice Spanish Crianza 2009.
