Fried Brussel Sprouts

Ok so maybe not as grandiose as last weeks cilantro lime salmon but when following keto you need some sort of side, so here is one of our favorites. Odd because my wife was never a fan of sprouts.

Fried Brussel Sprouts

You can't talk keto and not mention brussel sprouts. Seems they are one of the main go too vegetables. Good thing I love them. They are also super easy to do, bake, fry, even microwave. So here's my favorite way to do them for a quick weeknight dinner.
