Brussels Sprouts with Spicy Honey and Burrata is SO delicious. Instead of bacon, I used sausage and I also topped these Brussels sprouts with pomegranate for a nice tangy component. To add to the sweet and savory flavors of course! The spicy honey consists of smoked paprika, cayenne, and a little butter to cut some of the acidity. It's really mellow but still packs a nice punch. If you aren't a fan of too much spice, this is for you. Conversely, if you love spicy food, feel free to add more cayenne!

In addition, the burrata on top really makes this dish spectacular. Best of all, it's easy AND quick to make! Start to finish? About 30 minutes tops. Does it get any better? Don't answer that question. Just try this recipe, you won't regret it! lol

Brussels sprouts are easily one of my favorite vegetables. They go with almost everything and they're so good for you. They're also super versatile and basically take on the flavor of whatever you add to it. A lot of people cook brussels sprouts with bacon. Bacon is one of my faves to add to brussels sprouts. But I wanted to try something different by adding sausage instead. Now I know this isn't something that's never been done before. But it's different for me. I ALWAYS eat my brussels sprouts with bacon. To my delight, the sausage with the brussels are just as delicious! And as I mentioned above, with the spicy honey, burrata, and pomegranate arils - it's SO freaking good!

How did all of this come about? You may be wondering. These are a lot of flavors in one so I totally get how you'd be thinking "how the hell did she come up with this one?!". I was rummaging through my refrigerator and noticed that I should cook the remaining brussel sprouts leftover from Friendsgiving. They needed to be cooked before they went bad. I randomly started putting together ingredients and got an awesome result. Burrata was also in the fridge too. Because this is a spicy dish and burrata is a mild cheese, I paired the two. The creamy burrata mellows out this dish quite a bite and makes it cohesive. Also, in my humble opinion, burrata taste so luxurious!

happy thanksgiving!

So, today just so happens to be thanksgiving. Did I make these yesterday to test out and then again today to test out on my friends? Why yes, yes I did! This year, we decided to have a quaint gathering with just a few friends. Hubby did the majority of the cooking (I'm tired) and we had a beautiful dinner featuring these lovely brussels sprouts. We also made macaroni and cheese, challah stuffing, and the tarragon sesame roasted chicken from my holiday cookbook! My husband made a pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon and a few ribeyes too! I also experimented with a pie that I can't wait to post on the blog because it's SO freaking good. But these brussels sprouts were a HIT!

Speaking of which, I posted a few yummy holiday recipes this week, head over to my recipe page and check them out!
