Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Walnuts

Who would have ever thought Brussel sprouts would make such a comeback? They've had a bad rap for years but can be truly delicious if prepared by sauteeing or roasting them. This recipe from Pinch My Salt was fabulous and makes an excellent side dish to beef or pork. Casey and I both loved it!



Ingredients:
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon walnut oil (or oil of your choice, or apple cider)
4 slices thick cut bacon
1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and shredded (you can use the shredding blade on a food processor)
1/2 cup toasted chopped walnuts
kosher salt, to taste
fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, sugar, and oil; set aside.

In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon, cut or crumble into pieces, and set aside. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of drippings in pan (if there aren’t enough drippings to equal 2 tbsp, add a little butter or oil).

Heat drippings over medium-high then add shredded brussels sprouts. Cook, stirring constantly, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until just tender. Remove from heat and stir in bacon, walnuts, and dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.

Servings: 4

Yum, my family doesn't care much for brussel sprouts on their own, but they love them when made with bacon.

I **adore** Brussels sprouts! So thank you for sharing this recipe... can't wait to add it to my repertoire. My recent favorite (Brussels sauteed in walnut oil with toasted pecans) was from our Thanksgiving dinner... super yummy too!

Serious props for being so prolific in the kitchen. I am continually impressed and endlessly jealous!

Okay. I hate brussel sprouts and have NEVER tasted a recipe that could enable me to actually finish my serving. But I know they're good for me, so I decided anything w/ bacon can't be bad, right? I was right! I won't say I love them, but at least I now know that there is a way I can eat sprouts. Thank you! :)

Omg! I made these tonight and they were so good! I usually don't like Brussel sprouts because they kind of taste like dirt to me but I loved these. Between my hubby and I, we ate the whole pan : )

My husband hates Brussels sprouts, although I doubt he has ever tried one. I tried this recipe tonight using cabbage instead and he said it was a real keeper while filling his plate with a second helping!
I think I may try this with Kale the next time.
Thanks for a great recipe. Who knows, I may even shred a few Brussels sprouts in with the cabbage next time and see if he notices! LOL!
