This is a quick easy side (or main dish if you prefer) that is totally worth doing....


  • Organic bacon (or at least the drippings saved from your breakfast)
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Sea salt
  • Minced garlic
  • Butter
  • Organic saffron
  • Pasture raised egg yolk
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon
  • Mustard


  1. Cook your bacon in a heavy pan (we prefer cast iron)
  2. Remove bacon save for later, leave drippings in the pan (or add saved drippings)
  3. Cut Brussel sprouts in half and fill the pan, cut side down
  4. Cook over medium to med-high heat until the bottoms are dark brown, but NOT burnt
  5. Melt about half a stick of butter in another small pan
  6. Mince your garlic and add to the butter, lightly cook the garlic
  7. Add 3+ threads of saffron and crumple into the butter
  8. To a 4 cup pyrex add the egg yolk
  9. Using your immersion blender, whisk in olive oil slowly until you have a good base, maybe about 1/4 cup total. If you don't have an immersion blender, consider getting one or see alternative options here.
  10. Whisk in the butter mixture
  11. Add the juice from half of a lemon, a heavy pinch of salt, and a bit of mustard.
  12. Serve and enjoy!
