It's always good to have a few brussels sprouts recipes and this one is worth the effort. It combines Brussels sprouts with bacon and pine nuts.
You can use pancetta for this recipe instead of bacon.
Used different ingredients. Halved recipe. Used 3 slices pre-cooked bacon, 1 tsp. butter (for flavour) & 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 flavour of roasted sprouts, so after cooking in a frypan, I finished cooking by roasting sprouts in the oven (200 degreesC-15 min.) to give that "nutty" flavour. Everyone really enjoyed & will be making again soon! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. I've never made brussels sprouts before, but this recipe was totally easy and yummy! I did skip adding the pine nuts(as they are not my fave), and only cut the sprouts in halves. Also, I added bread crumbs to the topping of bacon. I served this dish for Thanksgiving, and EVERYONE LOVED 'em. - 29 Sep 2008
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!!!! - 29 Sep 2008
