I substituted pre-packaged bacon crumbles but used everything else according to the recipe, and it was delicious! Not enough, mind you, to convert my brussels sprout-hating boyfriend, but nevertheless... I enjoyed this quite a bit. The tang of the vinegar and mustard coupled with the creamy bite of the cheese crumbles gave this veg a new complexity and eased the bitterness of the usual brussels sprout side dish (which I personally love and adore). And lest I forget, bacon makes everything better... that's just a given.
I shaved the sprouts down on a mandoline when they were about 75% thawed (I used a bag of frozen sprouts).... but it dawned on me about halfway through that I could have cut the time and effort to almost nothing if I'd used the grating attachment on my food processor to shred them, so that's what I'll try next time. I also might toss in a little extra cider vinegar since I really like that flavor with the sprouts. I'm planning to make this again soon.... would be a great addition to any special occassion menu as well as a weeknight dinner.
