Grilled Brussels Sprouts

It’s bordering on crazy just how many times I made these grilled Brussels sprouts this week. They instantly became a favorite in our household. They take no time at all to make and make for the perfect very-flavorful side dish for a meal of grilled anything!

The original recipe calls for skewering the sprouts. I find it easier to just dump the sprouts into a stainless steel vegetable grill basket. I don’t have to worry about them spinning around or falling off.
Grilled Brussels SproutsYou can use the same approach for grilling other vegetables, such as small red or yellow potatoes or asparagus. Just partially cook (microwave) them first until slightly tender, add the seasonings, and grill until lightly charred and tender. Done!

Grilled Brussels sprouts are great alongside grilled radishes and roasted (or grilled) onions too. For sprouts with a bit more of a tang, try my grilled Dijon Brussels sprouts.
