2. Fry the bacon in a frying pan with a dash of oil until crisp, then remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Tip the shredded sprouts into the same pan and stir until wilted and tender.
3. Once the potatoes are done, drain them and roughly crush them with a potato masher or a fork. Tip the bacon and potato into the frying pan with the sprouts over a low heat. Season with black pepper and stir to combine, making sure you incorporate any meaty bits from the bottom of the pan.
