Shredded Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

I was given this recipe by a good friend, Nancy, who is also watching her weight. These Brussel sprouts are very healthy, low in points, and easy to make.  I've steamed and roasted brussel sprouts before, but this was my first time shredding them!

In my experience, people either love or hate the distinct taste of brussel sprouts.  By shredding the brussel sprouts the seasoning doesn't just sit on their surface, the brussel sprout shreds readily take on the added flavors.  I combined bacon, garlic, and lemon with a few more special ingredients to round out the flavor.

I personally love brussel sprouts, but my son dislikes them.  After trying one bite of my recipe, he served himself a plate and proceeded to eat the entire thing!  He said, "This is the first time I've eaten brussel sprouts and actually liked them!"  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as he did.

For good luck and a prosperous New Year, add some black-eyed peas to the recipe.  Yum!

Flip2Tasty, my family and I wish you a very Happy New Year!  Thanks for your support!

  1. I just fixed this for dinner tonight and added the black eyed peas. It was WONDERFUL! The flavors all blended together for a very tasty dish.

    My husband turned up his nose until the first bite then proceeded to scoop it onto his plate!

    It makes a lot so be sure to have company when you serve it.

    Am I correct to assume that the points were figured without the black eyed peas?
