  • 1 lb Brussels sprouts
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil ~ or about 2 tbsp or more of bacon drippings, instead of butter and oil
  • 1 tbsp good quality Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey ~ I really do just eyeball the amounts of mustard and honey
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper


  • Over medium high heat, melt butter and olive oil in large nonstick pan.
  • Add brussels sprouts, toss to mix and add a sprinkle of kosher salt. Cook and stir until brown and crisp-tender
  • Stir in mustard and honey until well combined and caramelized, a minute or two. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy.
