"A few tablespoons of duck and a very hot oven is all you need to turn some sleepy Brussels sprouts into something much more special."

I had just a small amount of duck fat I had been hoarding and this was was a great way to use it. Is duck fat necessary? No, but it adds just that little extra bit of flavor. Thanks, Chef John!
Tasty, but not terribly distinctive, the duck fat notwithstanding. I personally like the flavor of onions and butter with sprouts.
A good recipe, but probably not different with duck fat than butter.
