The Royal’s Easy Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Onion and Bacon

This easy recipe comes from Darren McGrady, The Royal Chef who worked in the Palace, serving as Princess Diana’s chef up to her death.

He advises to use a mandoline for this recipe or the shredder attachment on your 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.
