If you liked my other Bacon and Brussel Sprout recipe, that I shared with you all around Christmas. Then you are going to go bonkers for this recipe too, I promise. 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. Prep is pretty easy, simply wash and trim off the bad ends of the brussel sprouts, shred in the food processor. Fry the bacon, and saute the brussels till cooked with a little balsamic vinegar, garlic along with salt and pepper. I hope you enjoy!
Yum Brussel Sprouts never tasted so good!
Wash and trim the ends off the Brussels, then cut in half before placing in the food processor.
Thanks to my Hamilton Food Processor shredding these Brussels was a Breeze.
