Shredded Brussel Sprouts, Butternut Squash and Bacon Jam

Shredded Brussel Sprouts, Butternut Squash, and Bacon Jam

I came up with the recipe for our Thanksgiving feast at our neighbors house. It is relatively healthy minus the bacon jam. It was super easy and everyone loved it, even the kids. This would be a great side dish for any dinner and perfect for the holiday.

  • 1 cup peans
