Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Onion and Red Apple

Serves 4

1 lb. Brussels Sprouts

4 slices thick cut Applewood smoked bacon, cut into strips and cooked until crispy. (optional, and was omitted in this photo)

1 small onion, diced

1 red apple, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces

3 Tbsp. olive oil

Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper (go easier on the salt if you’re using bacon)

Slice each Brussels Sprout into very thin circles and break them apart. This creates the “shaved” appearance of the pieces. (You can also use a mandolin or a box grater to actually shave them. I prefer slicing them.) If using bacon, fry your bacon strips until crispy and set aside on a paper towel to drain. Then cook your onions in the olive oil until opaque, but not caramelized. Add Brussels Sprouts to the onions and stir. Cook for about 5 – 7 minutes on medium high heat until Sprouts are brown and caramelized to your liking. Add the apple and salt and pepper and cook another 3 minutes just to warm the apple, top with crumbled bacon, and serve.
