A few tablespoons of duck and a very hot oven is all you need to turn some sleepy Brussels sprouts into something much more special.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Heat duck fat in a small saucepan until melted.
  3. Combine Brussels sprouts, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and melted duck fat in a large bowl until Brussels sprouts are evenly coated. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until Brussels sprouts are browned and tender, but still slightly firm, 15 to 20 minutes. Flip Brussels sprouts over halfway through. Top with freshly squeezed lemon juice.

I had just a small amount of duck fat I had been hoarding and this was was a great way to use it. Is duck fat necessary? No, but it adds just that little extra bit of flavor. Thanks, Chef John!

Tasty, but not terribly distinctive, the duck fat notwithstanding. I personally like the flavor of onions and butter with sprouts.

A good recipe, but probably not different with duck fat than butter.
