Lately I've been trying to find really good nitrate free yummy sausage. I've found some here and there, or at least as close as you can get. Aidell's has some great chicken sausages; I've also seen some nitrate free hot dogs at Trader Joe's.
This recipe is a quick and easy one pot recipe; I've made it a few times and made it slightly different each time. You could either put the Brussels sprouts through the food processor or chop them up - I think chopping them is better, when I put them through the food processor I ended up with ground sprouts, it still tasted good but it was a little weird texture-wise.
