You know I love a side dish that comes together fast. And while this one just misses my “5 minute side” designation, it’s not far from at only 10 minutes and a whole bunch of delicious. Very “holiday” feeling, and easy peasy.

Four ingredients, seasoned only with salt and pepper, all you need is a sauté pan and a dinner party to attend. Ok, you could even make this without the dinner party.

And before you get worried about the “ginger” aspect, candied ginger is a total sleeper ingredient and I’m going to start using it way more because it really makes this special. Every so often you get a little bite with ginger in it and it’s just exquisite.

So with that holiday pot luck coming up and everyone being short on time, give this one a try. It’s seriously tasty.

Cranberry Ginger Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta

A 10-minute side that deserves a spot in any holiday spread. Super tasty and very seasonal.
Course: Side Dish
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 4 oz uncured pancetta
  • 18 oz shaved brussels sprouts
  • 1/4 cup candied ginger small diced
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Heat a sauté pan on the stove over medium heat. Add the pancetta and sauté for 5 minutes until it starts to brown and crisp and a good amount of fat renders out. Add the shaved Brussels sprouts, diced candied ginger and dried cranberries. Season with a pinch each of salt and pepper and toss together.
  • Cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the Brussels are tender but not mushy. Remove to a serving dish and serve warm alongside your favorite holiday spread.

    This was so easy and so delicious! I didn’t plan to make this, but I was able to easily buy the ingredients on a last-minute Trader Joe’s run. I couldn’t believe how fast it all came together, and the ginger really made the dish.
