COOKING TIPS,  SUBSTITUTIONS, AND SUGGESTIONS What can I serve
with this dish?

Just about anything! But some great main dishes that pair well
with Shaved Brussels sprouts with Bacon include:

If you’re too tired to make anything fancy, buy and chop up a
rotisserie chicken, fry up some eggs, or grill some
Whole30-compliant sausages or hot dogs!

Can I use something in place of Brussels sprouts?

Yes—thinly sliced white cabbage, Savoy cabbage, thinly sliced
kale leaves will work, too.

How do I store and reheat leftovers?

You can store the leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge
for up to 4 days or freeze it for up to 2 months. I reheat the
leftovers in a skillet over medium heat until the Brussels sprouts
are warmed through and the bacon gets crispy. If you shape it into
a nest in the skillet and crack in an egg or two, you’ll have an
amazing and hearty breakfast!
