These Shredded Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Balsamic Vinegar make for an excellent side dish or dinner option if you will.
If you liked my other Bacon and Brussel Sprout recipe, that I shared with you all around Christmas on this website.
Then you are going to go bonkers for these Shredded Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Balsamic Vinegar too.
Now I don’t normally make claims like this, because everyone has different tastes right?
But seriously who doesn’t like bacon?
Then adding it to brussels is just a match made in heaven, I could eat this all day everyday.
Just let your food processor do most of the work, follow the basic steps and you will have the most amazing side dish ready in under 30 minutes.
Not cooking for a crowd? Well then cut the recipe in half if you want, by why would you want too?
You can have this for lunch over the next few days, just store any leftovers in a sealable container and enjoy.
It’s even good cold, but serving it warm is certainly best.
Did you know that Brussel Sprouts are packed full of nutrients?
Such as vitamin C and vitamin K, folate, manganese, vitamin B6, dietary fiber, choline, copper, vitamin B1, potassium, phosphorus and omega-3 fatty acids.
So don’t feel bad for adding bacon to them to enhance their flavor, after all the same amount of bacon in this recipe is similar to that of a large pizza.
You are allowed to indulge once in awhile right?
This a true one pot dish, that anyone can prepare in a cinch.
