Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Bacon - A Family Feast

Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Bacon


Ingredients

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

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Instructions

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.

Cut the bacon into pieces by slicing the whole 12-ounce slab of slices in half, then stack and slice.

Heat a large sauté pan over medium high heat and once hot, spray* with pan spray. (*Pull pan off flame before spraying pan.)

Add bacon and cook until just short of crisp, about 5-8 minutes.

Use a spider or slotted spoon and remove the bacon to a bowl or plate.

Pour off all but ¼ cup of the bacon fat.

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.

Add the reserved bacon, salt and pepper and cook just to heat.

Serve immediately.
