Brussels sprouts are a food I’ve grown to love with age. I’m not keen on them just steamed, but I’m quite fond of them in a nice sauté mixture or off the grill. Seeing that summertime is in full swing, I opted to try a new Brussels sprouts recipe I found on Pinterest. This particular Grilled Brussels Sprouts recipe comes from Alton Brown on Food Network.
My favorite thing about them? They’re on a stick! Who doesn’t love a cookout and eating food off of a stick?! I hope your taste buds find it as enjoyable as mine.

Grilled Brussels Sprouts
• 1 pound Brussels sprouts, as uniform in size as possible*
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 tablespoon minced garlic
• 1 teaspoon dry mustard
• 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
• 1 teaspoon kosher salt
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
*Cook's Note: In order to facilitate even cooking, it is important that the Brussels sprouts be as uniform in size and shape as possible.
Heat a 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, garlic, mustard, paprika and salt and toss to combine. Allow the sprouts to cool until you can handle them. Skewer 4 to 5 Brussels sprouts onto each metal skewer with the stem ends facing in the same direction, leaving at least 1/2-inch in between each sprout. Place the skewers onto the grill with stem end closest to the flame. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Turn the skewers over and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.
