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!

Cook for 5-7 minutes, tossing frequently. Cover with a lid and add vegetable broth if the sprouts start to stick to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the vegetable broth and maple syrup in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Once Brussels sprouts are more fork tender and lightly browned, add the ham and drizzle with the maple syrup broth. Toss to combine thoroughly and cook for 3 minutes or until the broth reduces and thickens. Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the apple noodles and toss OR if serving as a meal, divide brussels sprouts and ham mixture into bowls and top with apple noodles. Serve.

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 :)

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!

you know what keeps me up at night? 🥺 the gut-wrenching mom guilt from worrying that this time is going to fly by (it is!) and I’m going to look back and wish I had made more one on one time with each my kids when they wanted it! it’s so hard to separate my time, and I’ll admit that I’m not great at finding ways and the right moments to do it. mamas out there who have 2 or more, what do you do to get more individual time with each of your kids?

maybe I’m putting too much pressure of myself in this season of life, but I can’t help feeling like I’m failing and I’m missing out on this adorable age! #proofofmom #motherhood #thisismotherhood #toddlermom
