    chefschwantz's Note:

    I admit I hated them as a kid too. I was at deer camp a few years ago and one of my uncles brought a bunch he had from the farmers market. Knowing my culinary aptitude, he tossed the bag at me and said "see what you can do with these" This being a hunting camp, the pressure was on. I couldn't make some fancy dish, so I tried to keep it simple and came up with this. You can use any smoked sausage you like, I prefer a Portuguese linguisa, but you can use kielbasa, bacon or ham as well. You can omit the crushed red pepper if you don't like a bit of heat. Can be served as a side dish or a main course. This is the only way to eat brussel sprouts IMO.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Sauté sausage in a large sauté pan over medium heat until it starts to get some color. Remove from pan but do not discard the drippings. Leave the drippings in the pan.
    2. 2
      To the pan add the oil/butter, garlic, red pepper, carrot, and brussels sprouts. Sauté over medium heat until the sprouts begin to brown. Add the cooked sausage back to the pan. Toss to mix.
    3. 3
      Deglaze pan with the stock, continuing to cook until the liquid in the pan is almost gone. Remove from heat and serve while hot.

      Made this for dinner tonight and both my wife and I gave it a 5 star. We are both big fans of brussels spouts and this really did the trip. Only change I made was I used a tad more red pepper flakes, close to a teaspoon, cause we like a little more heat. Thanks for a great one pot meal recipe that we'll make again.

      Yummy, yummy, & yummy! This was a great last minute recipe that I made for my family tonight. I loved it, my BF loved it, but it can only have 4 stars because my son did not care for it and my daughter (who usually loves brussel sprouts) did not like it.

      We liked it a lot. To serve it as a main dish, I increased the sausage to 1 lb. & omitted the hot pepper. Served over rice or noodles, it is a tasty, easy main dish.
