Brussels Sprouts Skillet

Wow, it looks like it has almost been a month since I posted a recipe. Life and everything else has been extremely busy at my end and I’ve pretty much been cooking through the Paleo cookbooks that I have in my arsenal. Both Against All Grain and Beyond Bacon are currently my go to books so if you haven’t already, go check them out!

Fall is definitely here when Trader Joe’s starts selling fresh stalks of brussels sprouts, acorns, spaghetti squash and butternut squash for a really good price. I grabbed some sprouts to make a quick and easy one skillet meal for dinner and added grass fed beef hotdogs, seasoned it with some cracked peppercorn and wing sauce dressing and voila! dinner is served :)

  1. What can be used in place of lard? I’ll never use it, so am wondering if perhaps butter would work? Everything else looks good, and I love a good Brussels sprouts recipe, so thank you!

  2. We tried this dish. I changed a few things due to what I had on hand. Instead of hot dogs I used kilbase beef sausage and hot n spicey dipping sauce…. Honey liked it

  3. Ive had this recipe in the back of my head for a while now and tonight its happening! Couldn’t find the blk pepper dressing so i’m doing a mixture of smoked tomato dressing and hot wing sauce. Also switching up the sun dried tomatoes with a roasted red pepper because that’s what we have on hand. Can’t wait!

  4. So what in the world of wide wide sports is “Tessamae’s cracked pepper dressing”
    Certainly nothing I wan’t to buy. What is the substitute for that?
