Mustard & Bacon Brussels Sprouts Slaw [Guest Post on The Baconista]

What an honor it is to be so graciously hosted on one of my new favorite paleo blogs, The Baconista! Stevie and I graduated in the same high school class and, I must admit, I always had a non-creepy girl crush on her. She was always this super cute, tiny, witty and well-dressed beyotch – meanwhile I was stomping around our high school halls like Andre the Giant in size 10 sneakers and gym clothes. I’ve come a long way…

So being the total paleo rock star she is, I’ve tried my hand in a few of Stevie’s recipes – all of which are the bomb. I made her paleo pseudo-toffee last week and could barely get the stuff in a storage container before eating all of it. I had melted chocolate and coconut remnants on my face for like hours…didn’t care. It made for a nice snack later in the day…

On to my recipe! I bring you this dish in honor or my crazy insane obsession with the bacon/brussels sprouts combination. I like my b-sprouts all ways…except steamed. Something about steamed b-sprouts makes me think of something an old senile grandmother would prepare “back in the day” before the glory of roasting them in magic existed (“magic” being bacon grease). I WILL enjoy them sautéed, roasted and even raw. WHAT? RAW BRUSSELS SPROUTS? You sick mother******. Ok…take a deep breath, de-wad your panties and let me explain. I won’t consume a whole, bitter, un-sauced sprouts raw – nor would I suggest it. But, as per this recipe, I’ll get totally buck wild with some raw shredded b-sprouts tossed with bacon and a delicious sauce of sorts. Ya…I know…I’m real crazy…going “buck wild” with brussels sprouts and all. #mylifeisexciting
