Shredded Brussels Sprouts With Bacon and Onions

Shredded Brussels Sprouts With Bacon and Onions created by Jonathan Melendez

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.

  • Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp (5 to 7 minutes); drain on paper towels, then crumble.
  • Add onion and salt to the drippings in the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until tender and browned (about 3 minutes).
  • Add water and mustard, scraping up any browned bits, then add Brussels sprouts and cook, stirring often, until tender (4 to 6 minutes).
  • Stir in vinegar and top with the crumbled bacon.

    Instead of using cider vinegar, I drizzled balsamic vinegar glaze then topped with the chopped bacon. The glaze gave it a nice sweet twist and the bacon stayed crispy - yum!

    Super tasty side dish for the holidays. I used a bag of fresh Brussels sprouts from Costco that I had picked up, trimmed, and washed last week and froze to use this week for Thanksgiving and as a result needed a bit less water than the recipe called for. I also used turkey bacon so had very little drippings to work with and added a splash of avocado oil to the pan. Worked very well and will keep this dish on our holiday menu.
