If you’re rolling your eyes in the manner of, “Wtf is this stuff, dietitian bacon?” that’s fair—I prefer to let the experts work with “the good stuff.” I really have no business handling any of the applewood-smoked whatever-the-hell. All I really know how to do with bacon is microwave a few strips and then crumble them over things.
I think the hardest thing in the whole process was slicing the shallot I sautéed before adding the shredded sprouts and crumbled bacon. I ended up adding a little parm on top, but follow your taste buds.
