Honey-Mustard Brussels Sprouts taste too good to be true! You won't believe it until you try them for yourself. 


  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. stone ground mustard (ad)
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt


  1. Prep the sprouts by trimming the ends of the stem and pulling off the top leaf.
  2. Cut each sprout in half lengthwise through the stem. Set aside in a bowl.
  3. Make sure sprouts are completely dry or they'll splatter in oil.
  4. Add olive oil to a cast iron skillet (ad).
  5. Place the sprouts in olive oil with the cut side down.
  6. Turn up the heat to medium high and fry sprouts until they're golden brown and crunchy (5 minutes).
  7. Try not to move sprouts around too much.  Brown them on one side, then flip to the other. 
  8. Mix mustard, honey and garlic together in a small bowl.
  9. Pour honey mustard sauce over sprouts in skillet and toss.  
  10. Turn heat down to medium low.
  11. Stir sprouts until the sauce soaks in (5 minutes).
  12. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve warm.


Be careful when frying in hot oil.  If heat gets too high, turn down to avoid splattering.
