    salt and pepper
    l tsp sugar
    3 oz brown breadcrumbs
    l l/2 oz chopped mixed nuts

    Trim and wash sprouts, make neat cuts in the base and cook in boiling
    salted water with the sugar for approx 10 minutes. Drain well and turn
    into the prepared baking dish.
    Melt the remaining butter in a heavy based fry pan and stir-fry the
    breadcrumbs and nuts until golden. Remove from the heat and stir in
    the finely grated rind from the lemon.
    Squeeze 1 Tbsp lemon juice over the sprouts and season well. Top with
    the crumble mixture and bake for 20 minutes.
