Serves: 2
  • 8 brussels sprouts, thinly sliced
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Butter or olive oil
  • ½ a medium sweet potato, diced small
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2-3 chopped scallions, white and green parts
  • 2-4 eggs (depends on how many you want per person)
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Sea salt and fresh black pepper
  • Optional on the side: toast, dollop of greek yogurt with lemon
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat a large skillet (cast iron or just a regular skillet), over medium heat. Coat the bottom with a little butter. Add brussels sprout slices and a pinch of salt. Let them cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until they start to become golden brown on both sides (it's ok if a few of the loose pieces char a little). Remove them from the pan and just set them aside on a plate.
  3. Add some olive oil to the pan, followed by the sweet potato cubes and another few pinches of salt & pepper. Leave them alone for a few minutes to develop a char on one side (about 5-8 minutes). Stir them and splash with balsamic vinegar. Add the garlic and mushrooms (if using) and continue cooking for another 5-10 minutes or so (if they're burning turn the heat down). Add approx. ¼ cup water to the pan and pop it in the oven until the potatoes are finished cooking (10-15 minutes, taste test a piece to check).
  4. Remove from oven, toss the brussels sprouts on top. Stir in the scallions and a few red pepper flakes. Taste & adjust seasonings.
  5. In a separate pan, cook your sunny side up eggs.
  6. Plate the potato/brussels sprouts on individual plates (I served mine in individual mini-skillets) and top with an egg, a pinch of salt & pepper.
