Brussel Sprout Burger


Truthfully, these are more like mini frittatas but since I eat them like a burger and it just sounds more fun, I call the brussel sprout burgers.

Being such a huge fan of brussel sprouts I often make extra large batches just so I can eat the leftovers.  This is one of my favorite ways to use b.s. leftovers.  It makes for a hearty breakfast, lunch, or a light dinner.

Brussel Sprout Burger

  • ½-3/4c shredded and cooked sprouts
  • 1egg
  • 1Tb sausage *optional, I often have bulk sausage open so I typically brown off a little bit before adding my greens.
  • Cheese for topping
  • 1 large roll, split and toasted

In a cast iron skillet or small sauté pan, cook sausage. Add sprouts and toss till warmed through.


Push the brussel sprouts into a nest in the pan, one nest per burger.  Crack an egg into the middle of it.


Using a rubber scraper, crack the yolk and fold the outter bits of the nest into the eggy center.

When it no longer sticks to the pan (1-2min) gently flip and allow the other side to brown.

Add a slice of cheese if desired and slide burger onto the waiting toasted bun.  Enjoy!

I like to make these burgers one or two at a time.  If you would like to make more than that, try scrambling the eggs, pouring over the sprouts and scooping into a pan.  Use a rubber scraper to shape into burger form.
