Stir-Fried Sausage & Sprouts
1 pound of trimmed and halved small brussels sprouts
12 ounces (4 links) Aidells Smoked Chicken & Apple Sausage, sliced into 1/4-inch slices (or use your favorite sausage)
2 to 3 tablespoons butter, divided (or coconut oil)
Place brussels sprouts in a covered glass Pyrex-type casserole dish with just the water and dampness left clinging to them after rinsing (about 1 teaspoon). Cover and microwave on high for about 3 minutes until slightly softened and still bright green.
While sprouts are cooking, heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large wok or non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add sliced sausage and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until browned. Transfer browned sausage to a bowl and set aside. Add additional tablespoon of butter to the wok or skillet; add steamed sprouts (drained) and stir fry over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes until browned and tender-crisp. Return sausage to skillet; add remaining tablespoon of butter and toss until coated and heated through. If desired, season with salt and pepper, to taste.
