  • 10 oz. Brussels Sprouts shaved
  • 6 Slices of Bacon cooked and chopped
  • 8 dates chopped
  • 1/3 c. fresh parmesan
  • 2.5 tbsp. Orange Juice
  • 1 tbsp. Orange Zest
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder


  • Chop bacon into small pieces and cook on the stove until it has reached just under your desired level of doneness. Do not rid of the grease.
  • Add Brussels sprouts, dates, garlic powder, and onion powder to the bacon over medium-high heat and cook until the sprouts are crispy -- roughly 5 minutes.
  • Finish off with orange juice and orange zest, cooking for an additional 1 min.
  • Top with fresh parmesan, serve warm.


I purchase my Brussels Sprouts pre-shaved -- that said, you can shave them on your own if you can't find them in your local grocery store. If your town has a Trader Joe's, I know that they carry them!
