Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Slaw

I’ll admit it, I love brussels sprouts! Most people wouldn’t believe me or share in this sentiment, but with my own free will I proclaim “I LOVE THEM”.  But, admittedly, they can be kind of boring.  Especially if you eat them the same way every time.  Thankfully for me, I am somewhat creative and made a new recipe to eat my Brussels sprouts with! This recipe involves shredded lettuce, a little bit of bacon, and a tangy almost ranch tasting dressing.  Its great as a side to any meal but I enjoyed it with a hot dog accompaniment.  This is the way to jazz up your Brussels sprouts or get someone to try it for the first time!



  • 6 Brussels sprouts
  • 1 piece of bacon
  • 2 teaspoons mayo
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • garlic powder
  • a drop or two of hot sauce

How to:

  1. Begin by shredding the washed brussels sprouts.  I used a mandolin to achieve this but if you don’t have one, you can use a knife or other device.
  2. Then shred one piece of bacon.  I used a knife to finely chop the bacon.
  3. In a pan, add the bacon and brussels sprouts.  Add in 3 tablespoons of water and cover the pan cooking on medium low.
  4. The water steams the brussels and then once the water is gone, the brussels will begin to sauté and then they are ready to transfer to a bowl for the dressing.
  5. The dressing is the mayo, vinegar, salt, pepper, hot sauce, garlic, and parsley.
  6. Whisky all that together and then pour over the sprouts, it doesn’t need much dressing.
  7. Then done!
