Quick and easy. I halved the recipe for two and it worked fine. Based on previous experience with similar recipes I par-cooked the sprouts before adding them to the pan and I added some caraway seeds for a bit of extra flavour. A fried egg on top finished it off nicely.-28 Dec 2016

This is sooooo good--here's a little tip from an old German lady--It's ok to use 2-3 Tbs of water in place of the canola oil for cooking the kielbasa,(kielbasa is already greasy) onions, and brussel sprouts, just keep an eye on it and add more water as it evaporates--the onions will still sweeten up and carmelize cooked in water.-12 Feb 2008

I have a slight variation of this dish, and use it as a main dish. Marinate the brussel sprouts, onions and kielbasa with the seasonings listed, but add chopped garlic and mushrooms. Bake in the oven until the brussel sprouts are to your liking. YUM!-09 Mar 2008

  • 1 pound (450g) Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved (or quartered if very large)
  • 5 medium shallots, peeled and quartered
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced into rounds, seeds discarded
  • 3 tablespoons (45ml) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 medium cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons (20ml) Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons (20ml) honey
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary needles (from about 5 sprigs)
  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 pounds 680g)
  • 4 large Italian sausages (about 1 1/2 pounds total), hot or sweet, cut into 2-inch lengths

Position rack in lower third of oven and preheat to 450°F (230°C).

Combine Brussels sprouts, shallots, and lemon with 2 tablespoons (30ml) oil in a 12-inch cast iron skillet. (Alternatively, you can use a rimmed baking sheet.) Season to taste with salt and pepper and toss to coat.

In a small bowl, combine garlic, mustard, honey, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary, and remaining 1 tablespoon (15ml) oil. Season with salt and pepper and stir to form a paste. Rub paste all over chicken. Nestle chicken and sausage pieces on top of Brussels sprouts.

Roast on lower rack until Brussels sprouts are browned and tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted into coolest part of the chicken registers at least 165°F (75°C), 25 to 30 minutes. (If chicken and sausage are done before sprouts have browned enough, you can transfer the meat to a plate and let the vegetables finish in the oven recombine before serving.) Serve.

Paleo 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sausage Sautéed with Brussels Sprouts

One Pan Brussel Sprout and Sausage Skillet

This dish has been a favorite in our house for years now. As soon as I start seeing bunches of brussel sprouts pop up at the market, I add it to the meal plan. It offers up a healthy serving of protein and vegetables, takes less than 30 minutes to make and only uses one pan! #winning

I actually posted it a looooooonng time ago with a really embarrassing picture (that I am shamefully NOT going to link up) but I decided now would be a good time to bring it back…in natural lighting. )

It’s one of those meals that is so easy it’s not really a recipe, more like a good idea, but we love it the same. And you can use vegan sausage or real sausage (hopefully certified humane!) to satisfy any kind of diet. As a vegetarian, I personally prefer Field Roast’s Smoked Apple Sage Sausage. The flavor is incredible and it pairs perfectly with brussel sprouts!

I usually like to make this meal during the week since it’s so quick and easy. It’s as simple as warming a little bit of olive oil in a large skillet then cooking the sausage for about five minutes on each side until they’re golden brown.

Meanwhile you can work on washing and slicing the brussel sprouts so they’re ready to go. I’m a big fan of eating them this way. I like to cook them so that they still have a little crunch to them. The texture is addicting!

After that, transfer the sausages to a plate lined with a paper towel and then use the same skillet to saute the brussel sprouts. At this point I like to add walnuts and a sprinkle of brown sugar but you can whatever kind of nut or seed you like.

Then add the sausage back to the mix, stir until thoroughly heated and boom! Dinner is served.

It might seem like a weird combination but trust me, it works. I’m confident that even this pickiest of eaters would enjoy it too.

I used to be one but that’s because my mom served them to me frozen and boiled. Gahrosss. Thankfully I saw the light at the end of the fresh produce section and now I can’t get enough.


I am back with another 15 minute recipe today. Yes, this meal is made with Brussels sprouts. I know many people don’t like Brussels sprouts but those who do, should definitely give this easy meal a try. Luckily we live very close to our business and lots of times we run home for a quick lunch with the hub. I made this meal and we literally licked all of our fingers. I don’t remember that I’ve always been a huge fan of Brussels sprouts but I spot them on the shelves in the grocery stores all the time ( they looks kinda cool) and I attempt to buy them and make something yummy with them. Brussels sprouts lightly sauteed and mixed together with a tasty sausage, onions and garlic, roasted to perfection is heavenly.

Brussels sprouts have an excellent level of vitamin C so be sure to included it in your diet.

Italian Sausage & Brussels Sprouts Skillet

Italian Sausage & Brussels Sprouts skillet is a must make. I am getting ready to jump back onto the KETO bandwagon and this will be on my food plan for sure.

Skillet Meal in NO Time

One of the best things about this one skillet recipe is how quick it comes together…in 30 minutes you can have dinner on the table. The sausage cooks down and gives you just enough grease to sauté the shaved sprouts in, and it adds a TON of flavor to the dish s well.

I purchase my brussels sprouts already shaved which saves a TON of time, if you cannot find them already shaved then it will take you a bit longer but not too much. If you do not want to shave them you don’t have too, just adjust cooking time to make sure the sprouts are cooked through.

KETO & Non-KETO Friendly!

Like I mentioned before this will be on my menu plan for when I jump back onto the KETO train, but the beauty of this dish is those in your life who are not KETO will still LOVE it. My mom has never been a big fan of brussels sprouts but she LOVES, LOVES, LOVES this dish. She has asked me to make it several times. This is another sprout recipe she is a fan of.

For the sausage I typically use a traditional Italian sausage but you could hot sausages or regular breakfast sausage if you would like. You could even use ground chicken, pork or even bacon in the dish. If you choose a leaner meat you might have to add in some olive oil before you sauté the sprouts.

Cheese … Please

The cheese is one of my favorite parts of this dish. I love the extra richness it adds to the sprouts and the sausage. I went with an Italian blend cheese but you use all mozarella or parmesan if you would like.

Actually Peter, the brussel sprouts have enough natural sugar that when heated over this temperature in a large skillet they do indeed caramelize. I found 4 minutes was pretty dead on when I made this last night. Also, sausage out of the casing and broken up as indicated, will brown as well if it is stirred swiftly on the pan. A large skillet is the key to allowing all the pieces of the food come in contact with the heat. Did you even attempt to make this or just pass judgement upon reading?

Sausage, Cauliflower and Brussels Sprout Hash
