* 2 garlic cloves, minced

* 1 shallot minced or onion

* 1/4 tsp red pepper flake.

2. Meanwhile use a mandoline, or knife and shred the brussel sprouts or cut in thin strips.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Using the drippings from the bacon add the garlic and shallot and saute for about a minute. Add the brussel sprouts and peas, season with salt and pepper, and cook stirring occasionally until the sprouts are tender and start to brown on the edges. (about 7-10 minutes) Add in the bacon.

5. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to slightly cool. Slowly drizzle the egg mixture into the brussels sprouts. Stir until the eggs form a creamy sauce, then return to heat and cook as needed to ensure the egg is cooked but not curdled.
