I like to use a mandoline for this recipe or the shredder attachment on my food processor. It makes the whole process much easier and really shreds the sprouts into a lovely tangle of green. Of course, you can also just use a sharp knife and get the slices as thin as possible.
Sauté the bacon until it starts to crisp in a saute pan. Add the sliced Brussels, onions, garlic, salt and pepper and olive oil (as needed) and toss together.2.
Saute on the stove for about 5-10 minutes until the sprouts and onion soften.3.
Transfer to a serving dish and pour over the lemon juice just before serving.
