Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Roasted Vegetables and Bacon {Side Dish Recipe}


A few years ago my thoughts on brussels sprouts changed entirely.

I had only ever had this green veggie roasted whole. Quite honestly the texture was what got me. I just couldn’t get past the feeling of it to enjoy the taste. I am not sure if it had to do with the way the layers all cooked separately or maybe I just wasn’t cooking them right. Either way, brussels sprouts were not my favorite…until I had them shredded. A whole new side of this nutrient filled black sheep opened up.

Shredded brussels sprouts scream fall to me. They are plentiful at the local markets right alongside of the acorn squash, pumpkins, apples, and other delicious fall fruits and vegetables. It seems natural that they would all go together nicely. And they do.

My foodie friend Colleen, from Souffle Bombay gathered a group of us together for a fun post about the flavors of Fall PLUS hold on to your hats!! We are giving away a GORGEOUS Kitchen Aid 5QT Professional Stand Mixer! Who’s  feelin’ lucky?

First up though, I bring you Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Roasted Vegetables and Bacon.



butter (to use on the pan)
1 large apple, peeled and cubed
1/2 acorn squash, peeled and cubed
1/2 large sweet onion chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 cups brussels sprouts sliced
3 slices bacon


1. Grease an 8×8 baking dish with butter.

2. Roast cubed apples and acorn squash together at 350 degrees for ~20 minutes until just fork tender.

3. Cook bacon in a frying pan.

4. Remove bacon when done but leave grease in pan. Add onions and garlic and saute for ~2 minutes.

5. Add brussels sprouts and cook for ~7 minutes stirring constantly until just tender.

6. Add apples and squash and cook until incorporated and warm.

7. Serve with your favorite main dish. I’m a fan of pork chops!

  3. This looks fantastic! I’ve always loved Brussels sprouts, even as a child. Squash, on the other hand, is not my favorite. I will definitely try this one – bacon makes everything work!
