When Kelsey of The Naptime Chef asked me to contribute a recipe for one her posts on’s Family Kitchen Blog, I was more than happy to oblige. Kelsey and I met on an egg farm tour in Oregon and I was immediately impressed by her spunk and intelligence, along with her sincere kindness.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I had some serious issues with Brussels sprouts when I was a kid. Stop by to read about my Thanksgiving Day antics and to check out this recipe for Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Cranberries and Pecans, the perfect side dish for your Thanksgiving feast or family meal.

I still have serious issues with brussel sprouts…but wish I did not. Maybe this will be the key! Sounds interesting!

I'm so grateful for this excellent looking recipe. Whenever I buy brussels sprouts I scratch my head for a while in the kitchen and wind up making them exactly the same old way: roasted with a bit of garlic and oil. Now something both new and delicious, thanks to you!

I really love brussels sprouts no matter what these days-but shredded with lots of goodies like this makes 'em even better!

Bacon makes everthing better. If only my mom knew that when I was growing up and she was trying to get me to eat my vegetables.

What a great recipe. I was just in Trader Joe's yesterday and they had a large stalk of brussel sprouts. It looked so healthy and interesting that I bought it, not having a clue what to do with brussel sprouts. Who would have known to shred those little cabbages. what a great idea
( I am vegetarain and will have to adapt the recipe, but it gives me a good starting point)

I wish I could get my family to like brussel sprouts. I think they're great cooked like this. An excellent side for Thanksgiving!
