This is a great way to serve brussels sprouts to people who think they do not like them. The bacon, red onion and cider vinegar help cut some of the sprouts bitterness.
Shredded Brussels Sprouts
- 14-18 medium sized brussels sprouts
- 1/2 red onion sliced fine
- 3 slices bacon
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
Wash sprouts, remove outer leaves and cut off bottom stems. Slice into thin ribbons. In a large saute pan fry bacon until crisp. Drain fat reserving three tablespoons. Crumble bacon and set aside. Cook onion in fat over medium low heat until it begins to brown. Add shredded sprouts and cook until they begin to wilt. Turn heat to high, add vinegar and reduce scraping up any bits stuck to pan. Spoon mixture into a bowl, add bacon and season with salt and pepper. Serve room temperature.
