Maple Brussel Sprouts and Ham Hash with Spiralized Apples

It’s nearing that time of the year: the holidays! Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s, and everything in between!

It’s time to gather with friends and family around the table and eat delicious food – and this year, let’s make it healthy too. Whether you’re attending a holiday potluck, planning Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, or just want a special meal at home, you’ll love this recipe.

Maple Brussel Sprout and Ham Hash with Apple Noodles

The Brussels sprouts soak up the flavor of the salty ham and the easy maple broth gives the dish an extra kick of sweetness, which is complemented by the spiralized apples.

If you’re looking for spiralizer recipes using apples, this is it! If you’re a vegetarian, swap in your favorite veg protein here, like a maple glazed tofu or even just toss in some quinoa.

You can prepare this in advance, just don’t spiralize the apples until you’re ready to serve – they’ll oxidize and brown quickly.

Maple Brussel Sprout and Ham Hash with Apple Noodles

You can serve this as a side dish (perfect for Thanksgiving) or it can be enjoyed as a solo meal. If you’re serving to a group, toss the spiralized apples with the brussels sprouts and ham mixture so they evenly distribute throughout.

Want to make this for breakfast? Top it with a fried egg!

Thanks so much Jennifer!
Jennifer Corbet says:
Just starting: how much garlic?
Jennifer Corbet says:
Made the recipe with a little onion (out of shallots) and one clove of garlic. Sat down for a rare and lovely breakfast with my husband before he went to work. The dish was a huge hit with us both, and will definitely be repeated. Thank you! It is dishes like this that make me so glad that I both eat Paleo and bought a spiralizer. My hubby said this morning that he is eating things that he NEVER would have before, and really enjoying it. Me too.
I'm so glad to hear that you are helping your hubby eat more healthy - that's my goal! I'm so happy you liked this recipe and are having fun with your spiralizer. Thanks for your kind note :)
Sonya says:
Lovely recipes and presentation!
Sonya what a sweet note, thank you!
Becky says:
Gonna make this excited!!! Thanks for the great recipe, Ali!!
Becky - you're very welcome! Hope you enjoy it :)
Jen says:
We really liked this! It was very different from anything we'd had before. Our apple kept becoming jammed in the spiralizer, but we made it work. I didn't see garlic on the ingredient list, but it was mentioned later. We put one large clove, but I will do more next time. Thank you for the innovative idea!
