Sausage, Butternut Squash, and Brussels Sprouts

It's been months since my last post...

This is one of those "recipes" that is not really a recipe, but that may be helpful for anyone who doesn't just naturally throw things together.

I love the combination of bacon, butternut squash, and brussels sprouts [I originally discovered this combination HERE], but had no bacon in my fridge or freezer. I do, however, have a bunch of ground pork so I decided to make some Pork Breakfast Sausage and liked the way that this turned out.

Here's what I did for tonight's meal:

1lb Pork Breakfast Sausage
3lbs Butternut Squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
2lbs Brussels Sprouts, trimmed

The squash and the sprouts should be the same size, so keep that in mind when cutting/trimming.

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the sausage to the heated pan and cook until browned; break up the sausage as it cooks.
  4. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the sprouts, squash, and browned sausage (add fat from the pan) with 1 T. fat and 1 tsp. smoked sea salt until coated. 
  5. Transfer baking sheet to the oven and roast until veggies are cooked through and browned; about 1-hour, depending on size of veggies.

Okay, i just came across your blog. I love the recipes you post! My fiance is a paleo eater (except he eats dairy), and I'm always trying to find delicious recipes to make for dinner, because I am a carb lover and find it so difficult to find some items. Thanks for the recipes!!

Check this out if you'd like (or anyone!)...it uses dairy, but it's a great twist to homemade Mac'n'Cheese...

A Paleo Diet Recipes regime is 1 in line with the idea that the best diet regime is that individuals evolutionary family history in the paleolithic time. Since many weight loss plans healthy that heuristic, a lot of options are actually designed in addition to popularised within names such as caveman diet regime, paleolithic diet regime, primal diet regime.
