1/2 Photos of Shredded Brussels Sprouts With Bacon and Onions
I love Brussels sprouts and think they have an undeserved bad reputation with so many because they are often overcooked. (Cooking Brussels sprouts releases sulfur compounds; when overcooked, they develop an unpleasant sulfurous flavor and smell.) In this recipe, adapted from Eating Well (October/November 2006), a small amount of bacon goes a long way to impart its wonderful, smoky flavor to the sprouts.
My Private Note

- 1Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp (5 to 7 minutes); drain on paper towels, then crumble.

- 3Add water and mustard, scraping up any browned bits, then add Brussels sprouts and cook, stirring often, until tender (4 to 6 minutes).
- 4Stir in vinegar and top with the crumbled bacon.
