Sausage & Brussels Recipe
You start by browning the sausage in a little olive oil. This brand was not very fatty so if you use another brand you might not need the added oil to brown the sausage.
Once the sausage is in the pan, start chopping the Brussels sprouts into thin pieces as pictured above. This will allow them cook quickly and they expand a lot when chopped as compared to leaving them whole. Add them to the pan and cook along with the sausage.
Season with salt and pepper, cove with a lid and cook for 5 minutes. Once the sausage is almond done, add in your pine nuts and continue sautéing until the sausage and pine nuts are browned and the cabbage is soft.
That’s all folks. If you add a fried egg on top this would be great for breakfast. However on it’s own it a nice easy low carb lunch or dinner too. The nutritional information for 1 serving is:
