  • 1 pound brussel sprouts cleaned and sliced, or use a mandoline
  • 1-2 lemons depends on your taste buds, I used 2 small ones
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme diced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Bacon grease or coconut oil for your pan


  • Preheat a large saute pan over medium heat and start by sautéing your red onions in the cooking oil of your choice. I prefer bacon fat.
  • While they are sautéing, zest both of your lemons, dice the lemon zest and set aside
  • Once your onions are translucent, add all of your sliced brussel sprouts to the pan as well as juice of one or two of your lemons and mix well continuing to stir while your brussel sprouts cook
  • Saute for about 5-10 minutes depending on how you like your texture in your sprouts, I like eating mine raw so I keep them a little on the under cooked side.
  • Once they are too your liking, stir in your thyme and salt and pepper and mix well
  • Remove from the pan and plate, sprinkle with your lemon zest and enjoy
  • I have also made this recipe with bacon, apples, and rosemary so feel free to experiment, they are all delicious
