Turkey Bake and Panfried Brussel Sprouts

I made this meal the other night for my sister and she could not stop telling me how amazing it was! I’ve never tried pan frying my own brussels sprouts before. I have baked them a ton of times, so I had to try them this way!

Whenever I go out to eat and see ‘pan fried brussels on the menu, I always order them. So, I knew they’d be amazing!

I make turkey bakes about 1 – 2 times a week but I wanted to switch it up a bit. You’re MORE than sure to impress with this meal! It’s also very easy to make and costs under $20 for 2 – 3 people.


Turkey Bake:

  • 1 package of lean turkey meat
  • 1 package of fresh butternut squash (Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh ground garlic
  • 1 can of roasted tomatoes
  • 1 jar of organic tomato sauce (I like the one from Sprouts because it’s very low in calories & sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of oregano
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Brussel Sprouts:

  • Olive oil
  • Brussel sprouts
  • 1 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and garlic salt


  • Heat a large pan to high and spray it with non-stick cooking spray
  • Add in the turkey meat and cook/stir around until the meat is browned
  • Next, add in the butternut squash, fresh garlic, tomatoes, garlic salt and salt. Stir together for a bit, then cover the pan. Next, cook for about 15 minutes or so – covered
  • You will then want to add in the jar of tomato sauce and oregano (you can either add in fresh or from the store – like McCormick)
  • Next, you will want to stir around until everything’s combined
  • Then, cover and cook for another 10 – 15  minutes
  • Taste and see if it needs anymore seasoning. If so, add in more 🙂

  • In a pan, fill it up about an inch or so hight with olive oil
  • Next, cover the pan and heat the pan to med-high for about 10 minutes
  • Once the oil appears to be hot, take the lid off and add in the cut in half brussel sprouts. BE CAREFUL BECAUSE THE OLIVE OIL WILL SPLATTER.
  • Once all of the brussels are in the pan, quickly cover them so the oil doesn’t splatter
  • For about10 minutes, let the brussels fry and cook until they look browned
  • Next, you’ll want to take a peak in the pan and once the olive oil looks like it’s cooked away, add in the apple cider vinegar and cook for a bit longer
  • Lastly, add in the salt and garlic salt to taste liking
