  • 1 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 1 link chorizo sausage, removed from casing
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat a skillet to medium-high and add the chorizo. Cook for 6-7 minutes, breaking it up into small pieces with your spatula, until cooked through. Set aside to drain on paper towels.
  2. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and add the butternut squash. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Season with salt and pepper. Add the brussels and sauté for another 4-5 minutes.

  3. In the meantime, stir together the butter, honey, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add to brussels/butternut mixture and stir to combine. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately!
