  • 1 1/2 lb. Brussels sprouts, tough outer leaved removed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 8 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup red onion, chopped
Warm Bacon Dressing
  • 6 Tbsp. bacon fat, rendered from cooking the bacon
  • 6 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  1. Thinly shave the Brussels sprouts and place in a large bowl. Set aside.
