Can you make them ahead of time?

This dish is so quick to cook, and the sprouts are at their best right out of the skillet. To get ahead of things, you can shred the sprouts a day or two before you are due to serve them and keep them covered in the fridge. Don’t pre-shred the apple or it will brown.

Leftovers will keep well in the fridge for 3 to 4 days and you can reheat them in the skillet to serve.

How do you make Brussels sprouts not taste bitter?

If you usually don’t like the bitterness of spouts, I’m here to change your mind with this recipe! By finely shredding the sprouts, you allow the chemical that produces a bitter flavor to escape during cooking, and that’s why even the sprout haters will love this! The blue cheese and honey also balances the flavor and I promise you, everyone will be asking for more!
