My kids are just as picky about their vegetables as anyone else. One likes corn, another only wants peas, but thankfully they can all agree that brussel sprouts are awesome! Which is a really good thing considering how much their momma loves them.
Our absolute favorite way to prepare them has always been pan fried with bacon and I never thought that would change. I mean they have bacon! How can you go wrong with bacon??
But then I discovered grilling the brussel sprouts.
They get this melty texture and grilling them brings out all those sweet, long roasting flavors. They are quite literally transformed to the most delicious sprouts I've ever had.
Honestly they barely even need the glaze after the olive oil and salt & pepper. But use the glaze. You'll thank me for it later.
Grilled Brussel Sprouts
1 pound brussel sprouts, as uniform in size as possible
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Skewers - metal or wood. If using wood be sure to soak them for 30 minutes prior to using to prevent catching them on fire
Heat grill to medium.
Cut off the stem end of the Brussels sprouts and remove any yellowing outer leaves.
Place the Brussels sprouts into a large, microwave safe mixing bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 3 minutes. Add the olive oil and salt & pepper; toss to combine.
Allow the sprouts to cool until you can handle them. Skewer 5 to 6 brussels sprouts onto each skewer with the stem ends facing in the same direction.
In a small bowl, combine the vinegar and the brown sugar.
Place the skewers onto the grill. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Lightly drizzle with vinegar mixture.
Turn the skewers over and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Drizzling again with the vinegar mixture.
