Who The Hell Eats Brussels Sprouts?

Really? This was the question posted after I ordered them in a restaurant a scant while back.
Although it made me think back. I was assured by my memory that brussels sprouts were indeed the only vegetable that left me sitting at a darkened dinner table at the age of about 7ish, to contemplate reviving the circulation in my lower extremities. It was the brussels sprout that sat cold as I outwitted and outlasted my father’s patients. It was an entire stalk of brussels sprouts that I, later that year in my third grade class, brought in as a mystery object to stump my fellow peanut gallery during a presentation.

Why would I order them then? On my birthday no less?
Mostly because they were actually on the menu. I mean, who the hell would put one of the most despised, spherical vegetables on the planet onto their dinner menu?

What can I say? I’m a daredevil. That and they had bacon in them, so they had to be good, right?

Finely shredded, bacon-y delicious with a sprinkle of crushed, red chilies and lemon zest. They really were good. I ate them all, I wanted more, in fact, they were about the best part of my meal! Needless to say I’ve made them again, of course, not being a big bacon eater going to the butcher to grab three slices of bacon raised a little eyebrow, but that why we shop at the butcher, so you can get exactly what you want – and get it organic…


1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and shredded
3 Slices Bacon, please, please make it organic
Pinch of chili flakes
Zest of half a lemon
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

In a large sauté pan, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp.
Remove and rest on a paper, reserving 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease in the pan
To the pan, add the shredded brussels sprouts and cook over medium heat until softened and steaming.
Meanwhile, roughly chop the bacon into small pieces.
Remove the brussels sprouts from the heat and stir in chili flakes and zest then season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve hot.

clumbsycookie - What gorgeous pictures! I’m sure the sprouts with bacon are delicious, oh well anything with bacon is, ;) !

Claire Seguin - Small brussel sprouts are WAY better than large ones.

Heather - YUM! That sounds awesome, I’ll definitely try making it. I’m one of 38 people in the world who LOVES brussels sprouts.

james - Second of 38 in the world… who love Space Sized Cabbage…!!

Txscyn - Have to say I love them steamed with vinegar, broiled with butter and garlic, roasted with sea salt and rosemary….But oh yes bacon can only make it better….thanks for a new idea.

lonntj - Try sauteeing with wild mushrooms and then drizzling with truffle oil just before serving. My cousin who is “allergic” to vegetables took the leftovers home with her after thanksgiving!

Dayna - Such great new suggestions, thanks!
…And truffle oil, my favorite!

Nicole - I love brussels sprouts! I’ve always wanted to prepare them this way, but for some reason I never get around to it. You’ve now inspired me to do it soon!

Sean - Oh it took me a good 30 years to learn to love the Brussels sprout. I love them quartered and roasted until caramelized, then tossed with hazelnuts and blue cheese. Or, leaves blanched and stuffed with chestnut puree floating on a sea of porcini gelee. ;-)

cavoletto - well, actually, I eat them too… :-) ))
