Cut and half brussel sprouts and cut in half. Add the oil to the bottom of the pan. Add turkey bacon pieces and the brussel sprouts. Sautee on low heat for 5 to 7 minutes. Do not over cook the brussel sprouts because they will become brown very fast. They should remain a vibrant green color when sautéed on low heat in avocado oil.


 Cranberry Sauce

It is not a Thanksgiving meal without the cranberry sauce! Ours is super simple and is more on the tangy than the sweet side to pair it with all the fruity, citrus and slightly sweet side dishes.

Just add one 16 oz bag of cranberries,  1.5 cups of water and 1 cup of raw organic sugar to a pan on the stove and let it simmer until the berries cook into a sauce. If it’s too tangy, you can add more sugar for your taste. We like ours on the tangy slightly sweet side.

We promised quick, easy and delicious recipes. Here is a super easy to make a delicious side dish: brussel sprouts. One trick to keep in mind: do not over cook the brussel sprouts! We repeat: do not leave it on heat more than 5-7 minutes, and let the brussel sprouts turn mushy and brown. There is nothing worse than over cooking them. The brussel sprouts should be slightly browned but still vibrant green in color and soft enough but not too soft, just a hint from crunchy. So 5-7 minutes on heat max.

Method: pour  garlic infused avocado oil to the bottom of the iron skillet.  Add turkey or regular bacon pieces and halved brussel sprouts. Let the fire do it's job for -7 minutes while stirring with a spoon spatula occasionally. It does require a few stirs so it would not burn. If it sticks to the bottom of pan, by all means add some more garlic infused avocado oil.
