Battered brussels sprouts - new festive delicacy hits takeaway menu
Love them or loathe them, there's no disputing that Brussels sprouts are a Christmas tradition that you can't avoid.
Deep fried Brussels sprouts are creating quite a stir in London.
Sutton and Sons, a fish and chip shop in East London, have the festive delicacy on their menu, battering and frying the miniature green vegetables until they have lost nearly all nutritional value.
“I’ve never been a huge fan of Brussels sprouts, so we tried battering them for the Christmas season and they are a great way to get everyone to tuck into those boy scouts," Danny Sutton, the shop owner told The Quirker.
This is his takeaway's way of doing its bit to help increase the vegetable's popularity, he said.
Customers are catching on to the idea and requesting the dish as a side order instead of mushy peas, he said.
After stuffing yourself with battered Brussels sprouts you can finish off your meal with a deep fried mince pie, fried in oil and served with brandy butter.
