I think I have found my ultimate convenience food. Yes, I can certainly chop and slice my own Brussels sprouts. But why when I can buy these that are already done for me? These shredded Brussels sprouts are not expensive either.
I bought these at Trader Joe’s during my monthly shopping trip there. I snagged the last 2 bags much to the chagrin of the woman who simultaneously reached for the remaining bags too slowly. She was on to something. Now I know what. ????
I love shredded Brussels sprouts. Actually, I love them whole, too. I am a veggie eater and so is my family, but sometimes the sprouts have to be disguised a bit so my oldest AKA Mr Pickypants will eat them. So what do I do with them? I saute them with meat, sprinkle on sweetness and toss in Craisins. BOOM. They are gone in minutes.
I used diced pancetta for this but feel free to use what you like. 6 strips of high quality (diced) bacon, diced ham-whatever floats your boat. I used 8 oz here because I made a double recipe. Below is my recipe using one 16 oz bag of shredded Brussels sprouts.
What if you can’t find pre-shredded? Then get out your knife and slice away ????
