1) I'm not vegetarian so I'd cut up pieces of bacon, fry them out and then take the bits of cooked bacon out, and quick fry the sprouts in the bacon fat. When they're tender enough, add back the bacon.

Don't know it you'd get the same results if you fried them in a light amount of oil with facon. I have no idea if it has the same smoky flavor as the meat version.

2) If you like fried cabbage and noodles you could sub the sprouts for the cabbage. A bit milder flavor but still tasty.

I'd saute them in butter/oil, garlic and shallots, and a little lemon juice.

Here are some other ideas:

I would saute them a little, depending on how shredded they are with some butter and olive oil, maybe some garlic, salt and pepper and gobble them up.

I would make a slaw. I've made something similar to this before and it's very tasty. Easily adaptable to your tastes.

Never had shredded sprouts. I think use in a stir fried combo with other fave ingredients. Like Fried Rice.
--

Combine cream and a dollop Dijon, garlic . Heat but do not boil.
Pour over crisp cooked brussels , carrots and sliced onion and any other veggies. Put the veggies on top of a little fettuccine or linguine and
pour on the sauce. Parmesan. I just made this up, but I think I would do something like this. Brussels sprouts can handle robust flavors.

I have to try brussels sprouts slaw.
