Honey-Mustard Brussel Sprouts


2 pounds Brussels sprouts

¼ cup Busy Bee honey

¼ cup Lusty Monk mustard

1 tablespoon bacon fat

1 tablespoon olive oil

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons sliced almonds, chopped


  1. Clean and trim Brussels sprouts. Blanch in salted, boiling water for about 5 minutes, until fork-tender. Shock in an ice bath; drain. Split Brussels in half and let drain for 30 minutes.
  2. Toss Brussels sprouts with honey, mustard, and bacon fat. Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil, and roast in a 400-degree oven. They will begin to caramelize after about 10 minutes. At that point add the chopped almonds and roast for another 5 minutes.
