Ingredients and Variations

The possibilities for flavor match-ups are endless!

Brussels Sprouts – Find fresh Brussels sprouts in the produce section, or on a large stalk of about 12-15 from a farmer’s market. Pluck off any damaged or bruised leaves and trip the bottom stems, if necessary. Frozen Brussels sprouts can be used once thawed and patted dry so the seasonings adhere better.

Garlic Oil – Olive oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil are all excellent choices. Leftover bacon grease will add a punch of smoky flavor if you have it.

Variations – Mix oil with a little honey or maple syrup for a sweeter, stickier side dish. Drizzle Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar and a dash of sriracha, or wrap brussels sprouts in strips of uncooked bacon and sprinkle with brown sugar before roasting on the grill for a new flavor twist.

How to Cook Brussel Sprouts on the Grill

  1. Rinse and trim Brussels sprouts.
  2. Soften them in the microwave for 2-3 minutes (as per the recipe below).
  3. Season sprouts in oil and seasonings and grill until tender and browned.
  4. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese before serving.

Grilling Tips and Tricks!

  • To ensure even cooking, do not skip par-boiling the Brussels sprouts in Step 2.
  • Bite-sized grilled Brussels sprouts can burn quickly so keep batches wrapped in foil until ready to serve.
  • Skewers and grilling baskets are helpful in keeping Brussels sprouts from slipping through grill grates without compromising their flavor.
  • Leftovers Keep leftover grilled Brussels sprouts in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat them by spreading them on a baking sheet and placing them under the broiler until they are crisp again.
