"Not too often do you hear 'fantastic' and 'Brussels sprouts' in the same sentence but this recipe is deserving of that. When I mentioned I was bringing Brussels sprouts to a holiday get together, my mom told me not to bother. After eating this dish, my family now requests I bring it to every get together!" — MOMZRIGHT

I also got a "don't bother" and several turned up noses from my family when I said I was making this dish for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it, including a picky sister and my even pickier two year old. Since then we have served it at 3 dinner parties. The people that try just a spoon to be polite always go for seconds. We end up sending the recipe home with everyone. Contrary to what some say, I think it is great the next day. My advice is to cook the bacon and do the shredding ahead of time. Then it's much easier to throw together at dinner time. Even if you're skeptical, try it! You won't be disappointed.
These seemed really boring to me. I'm not a huge brussels sprouts lover, so I thought it was just me, but my kids sprouts and they both agreed with my assessment.
Really good. Not a fan of shredding them since it looks sloppy & overcooks easily that way, so I quartered/halved them. Turned out to be very tasty. I even used pre-crumbled, pre-drained bacon, so it was less greasy/fattening, but just as delicious!
This is a very good recipe, but as written, it could use a couple of adjustments. The butter content could be halved, as the dish is a little too rich/greasy. Also, I'd recommend the cooking time be reduced to about 7 minutes. The finely shredded brussel sprouts come out much nicer if there is still a little bite in them--there's no risk of mush that way. I substituted turkey bacon for regular bacon. It was a big hit at my Thanksgiving dinner. I will make this again.
This recipe is definitely 5 stars! Helpful Hint: Try soaking these lovely little veggies in salt water for an hour or so prior to shredding them. The salt water helps dispel the bitterness! This recipe was so, very, very tasty! Didn't change a thing and the recipe didn't need it. Excellent!!!
Halved recipe. Used 3 slices pre-cooked bacon, 1 tsp. butter (for flavor) & 2-3 Tbsp. olive oil (since didn't have much bacon grease). Subbed pecans for pine nuts. Did not core, just trimmed ends before shredding. I like the flavor of roasted sprouts, so after cooking in a skillet, I finished cooking by roasting sprouts on a cookie sheet (400 degrees-15 min.) to give that "nutty" flavor. Everyone really enjoyed & will be making again soon!
I didn't find this recipes time intensive at all. I used my food processor to shred the sprouts and it worked great. Once the bacon was cooked, it went very quickly. Excellent recipe!!! Rave reviews and request for recipe by all!!!!
*****If you even like brussel sprouts, you will Love this dish. I'm so glad I decided to make this at the last minute last night to go with my full blown turkey dinner. I doubled the recipe as another reviewer suggested for leftovers since I love brussels, and i left out pine nuts because no one but me in my family of 5 likes nuts at all and do not feel like we missed a thing. This is awesome!! 3lbs of spouts seems like a lot at first but they do cook down and you will want some the next day. As I am typing this, I'm having a bowl and it's only 9:25AM!!! Yes, it's that good! oh, and use your cuisinart or whatever you have to shred them.
