Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Bacon - A Family Feast

Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Yield: 4 servings 1x
Prep: 15 minutesCook: 20 minutesTotal: 35 minutes


1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts (larger sprouts are easier to shave, but smaller sprouts will also work fine)

12-ounce package bacon (we used apple wood)

Non-stick pan spray

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Using a mandoline on the setting that cuts 1/8th-inch slices, hold the stem, slice all of the Brussels sprouts and discard the stems. Set shavings aside.
  2. Cut the bacon into pieces by slicing the whole 12-ounce slab of slices in half, then stack and slice.
  3. Heat a large sauté pan over medium high heat and once hot, spray* with pan spray. (*Pull pan off flame before spraying pan.)
  4. Add bacon and cook until just short of crisp, about 5-8 minutes.
  5. Use a spider or slotted spoon and remove the bacon to a bowl or plate.
  6. Pour off all but ¼ cup of the bacon fat.
  7. Add the shaved sprouts and sauté about ten minutes or until your desired doneness. We like them a little underdone so ours were cooked in eight minutes.
  8. Add the reserved bacon, salt and pepper and cook just to heat.
  9. Serve immediately.
