Cast Iron Sausage and Brussel Sprout

Today, we would like to share a simple weeknight dinner. It combines the savory flavor of sausage with the crispiness of Brussels sprouts.

Brussels sprouts are a great source of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin K, vitamin C, and potassium. They are also high in fiber, which can help to support healthy digestion. It gives a delicious flavor to the brussels sprouts when they are cooked in the grease from the sausage.

We also added some yellow squash cubes. You can use other veggies available in your fridge here.

Most importantly, this dish is cooked in a single pan and can be served directly in the cast-iron skillet, making it incredibly simple to prepare and clean.
