Just give the sprouts a stir and the butter will melt.

Oooh, what to do what to do? Brussels sprouts at Christmas or of course anytime you fancy. Or how about on a jacket potato? I saw this on an oldish (2005) Jamie Oliver DVD - Christmas with Jamie.

Now it's all very simple to have this butter ready and waiting in your freezer for when the mood takes you to use it.

Lay your sheet of greaseproof paper out on the worktop with the widest side top and bottom. You can run your hand under the cold tap and smear it over the paper if it won't behave and lay flat.

Dry your hands and then put the butter in the centre and spread it out in an oblong. It will probably spread to about 8 x 5 inches. When the bacon mixture is cold put that on top of the butter.

Roll it up like a Christmas cracker and pop it into the fridge to set. When it's completely cold you can unroll it and slice it into thick slices. Roll it back up pop it into a freezer bag and you have flavoured butter long after Christmas! It'll keep for a good few months.
