  • Toss baguette cubes with olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, in a large bowl. Place on a baking sheet.

  • Place a wire cooling rack on a separate baking sheet; lay bacon slices on top.

  • Bake bacon and baguette cubes in the preheated oven until bacon is browned and baguette is toasted, about 15 minutes; make sure to turn the bread halfway through. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Finely chop bacon.

  • Mash anchovy fillets, garlic, and mustard together with a fork in a large salad bowl. Add mayonnaise, 1/2 of the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, lemon juice, Worcestershire, and season with salt and pepper. Whisk dressing until well combined.

  • Shave Brussels sprouts using a mandolin; place into the bowl with the dressing. Add 1/2 of the bacon and croutons; toss until well coated. Serve with remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, croutons, and bacon on top.

Cook's Note:

You can also use a knife or a food processor to shave the Brussels sprouts.

I would reduce the lemon juice just a tad it overpowered the flavor of the dressing at first. Perfect for a dinner for 3 with 2 servings left over. Read More

This recipe is fantastic!! I made this for my family and they couldn't stop eating it or raving about it! I made no changes to the recipe other than adding a slight amount of brown sugar to bacon prior to baking it to give it a candied flavor. I also skipped the croutons because I forgot to buy the bread on my shopping run. This will definitely be one of my go to recipes! Read More
