olive oil for frying
17.6 oz. (500g) Brussels sprouts
7 oz. (200g) salsiccia
12.3 oz. (350g) gnocchi
3 tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. honey
some chili flakes
grated parmesan cheese (optional)
1. Clean the Brussels sprouts and remove the wilted leaves. Cut in half.
2. Heat up a large frying pan with a good amount of olive oil, add the halved Brussels sprouts, cut-side down, and fry until nicely browned – do not move them, just check from time to time to make sure they don’t burn. When the cut-sides are browned, stir and fry another 2-3 minutes so the sprouts are slightly crisp all around. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan and set aisde.
3. Add some more oil to the pan and heat up. Remove the casings from the salsiccia sausages and add the meat to the pan. Fry until crumbly and nicely browned. Add the gnocchi and continue frying until the gnocchi also got some color. Add the butter and honey and season with some more salt, pepper, and chili flakes. Continue cooking for 1-2 minutes, then add the Brussels sprouts and warm up again. Serve with some grated parmesan (optional).
