“Mom, I want more Brussels sprouts, please!” That’s not something you would’ve heard me say as a kid. But now, put a bowl of these grilled Dijon Brussels sprouts in front of me and I’m asking for seconds. And thirds. Fantastic Dijon flavor and nicely charred sprouts, cooked until they are just tender. With just a hint of smokiness. Perfection!
These awesome grilled Dijon Brussels sprouts have quickly become our go-to side dish when grilling something for dinner. Preparation time is almost nothing. Cook time is darn near nothing. It couldn’t get any easier to make a delicious side dish.
I highly recommend that you use a vegetable basket when making this on a grill.
My regular-ole grilled Brussels sprouts are mighty good eating too!
Grilled Dijon Brussels Sprouts
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4 servings
- 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1 pinch dried thyme crushed
- 3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper plus more for garnishing
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt plus more for garnishing
Fire up your grill for direct cooking. You'll want to use a grill vegetable basket.
Trim ends off of the sprouts and cut in half. Remove any bad leaves.
Whisk together remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add the sprouts and toss gently to coat. Let set for 5 minutes.
Transfer sprouts to a grill basket that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Transfer to the grill and grill for 5-10 minutes, tossing occasionally, until lightly charred and just starting to soften. I use a long bamboo skewer to poke the sprouts as they cook so I can tell when they are done.
Remove from the grill and serve immediately sprinkled with more salt and pepper as desired.
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.
You 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.
