I’m gonna make a disclaimer about these Honey-Mustard Brussels Sprouts before I go any further. They’re BEYOND GOOD…and they’re FRIED.
I know. I’m taking a perfectly fine vegetable and frying it. But, what’s a southern girl to do? Make FRIED Brussels Sprouts…that’s what!
You could bake these if you’re being good, but I don’t want to. I’m pulling out the sass here and taking one for the team! Come along with me if you dare.
You’ll need a cast iron skillet…or one that holds the heat and puts a nice char on the sprouts.
Start out by prepping the sprouts. Trim the end where the stem is and pull off the top leaf. Cut each sprout in half lengthwise through the stem, then set aside in a bowl. Make sure they’re completely dry or they won’t fry well.
Place the sprouts in hot olive oil with the cut side down. Fry the sprouts on medium-high heat until they’re golden brown and crunchy….about 5 minutes. Try not to move them around too much. Let them brown on one side, then flip to the other.
Next, toss them in my amazing honey-mustard sauce recipe. Stir around until the sauce soaks in. Sprinkle with sea salt and you’re done!
Those are some happy sprouts! 🙂 And, you’ll be REALLY happy once you taste them. Try them with my BBQ Chicken Patties, or anything else you can conjure up.
