Planked Lemon Pepper Brussels Sprouts

I’m always on the lookout for a simple, quick and easy grilled side dish. It doesn’t have to be fru-fru, but it does have to be tasty. I recently purchased a lot off Kosmo’s Q wing seasonings. The lemon pepper seasoning is off-the-charts yummy on wings, and it got me thinking… how great would it be on grilled Brussels sprouts? Well the answer, of course, is fantastic!

Planked Lemon Pepper Brussels Sprouts

You could roast these lemon pepper Brussels sprouts in the oven, or grill them directly on your grill or in a vegetable basket. But I love cooking on cedar planks. They add just a hint of cedar, something different, something good.

Don’t be shy with the Kosmo’s Q lemon pepper seasoning. It’s quite lemony, it’s quite peppery, and more is better.

Instructions

  • Place a cedar plank in water while preparing the sprouts.
  • Bring a medium pot of water to a slow boil.
  • Trim the ends off the sprouts and remove any loose leaves. Cut each sprout in half lengthwise.
  • Add the sprouts to the water. Let simmer for 10 or so minutes, until the largest ones can be poked with a toothpick with just a little resistance.
  • Remove the sprouts from the water and rinse with cold water. Drain very well.
  • Fire up your grill for direct cooking, around 400 F.
  • Gently toss the sprouts with the oil. Just use enough to lightly coat them.
  • Sprinkle with the Kosmos Q Lemmon Pepper wing dust. How much you add is up to you, but my opinion is more is better.
  • Transfer the sprouts to the plank. If you place them cut-side down you won't have to worry as much about them rolling off as you move the plank.
  • Transfer to the grill and grill for 20-25 minutes or until the plank is charred and the Brussels sprout leaves have a little char on them too.

Notes

Kosmos Q wing dust contains enough salt so you won’t need to add any to the sprouts. You can add freshly ground black pepper if you like.
Nutritional values do not include the wing dust.

Grilled Dijon Brussels Sprouts

“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!

Grilled Dijon Brussels Sprouts

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! For a different take on Brussels sprouts, try pickling them instead!

Instructions

  • 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.

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!

Grilled Brussels Sprouts

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.
