Crispy Salt And Pepper Brussels Sprouts


By Jessica Merchant


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, stems trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon flaked sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Slice each Brussels sprout into 3 or 4 slices.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the coconut oil. Add the Brussels sprouts to the skillet, tossing them well to coat with the oil. Use a spatula or heatproof spoon to spread the sprouts into a single layer (the best you can) in the skillet. Let the sprouts cook until crispy on the bottom, 5 minutes. Flip the Brussels and cook until the other side is crispy, 5 minutes. Flip any remaining sprouts and cook until golden and crisp.
  3. Remove the skillet from the heat and toss the salt and pepper with the Brussels.

Note: Try the bacon grease. Just do it.
