Recipe type: Paleo
Serves: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp. cooking oil, (olive oil or avocado oil work well)
  • 1 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 4 links of chicken apple sausage, (I like Aidell's)
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, sliced in half.
  • Mustard, for serving, (stone ground, dijon, or honey mustard all work well!)
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the brussels sprouts, season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and let cook for 2 minutes before stirring. This should give the brussels a lot of good color and flavor.
  3. Stir with a wooden spoon, making a space in the middle of the pan for the sausage. Add the sausage, and let everything cook 4 minutes.
  4. After 4 minutes, turn the sausage to brown the other sides.
  5. Drizzle the brussels sprouts with the maple syrup and stir. Let everything cook 2 more minutes.
  6. Add the minced garlic to the brussels sprouts, and stir. Let everything cook a final 2 minutes.
  7. Turn off the heat, and squeeze the lemon juice over the brussels sprouts. Stir one final time.
  8. Serve the sausage and brussels sprouts with a side of your favorite mustard for dipping.
