How to Make Brussels Sprouts on the Grill

There is nothing better than summer in Minneapolis! We have long winters that are delightful until you are going on 7 months in the frigid cold. We have a short spring and then BAM, it’s 80º and people are walking around in their swimsuits.

You will find Team Fit Foodie walking around the lakes, canoeing in the boundary waters, and grilling. LOTS of grilling. We have been looking back at older Fit Foodie recipes and revamping them. We were all itching for summer so we made a list of a few Fit Foodie recipes on the grill that needed a facelift. These balsamic brussel sprouts were the first on our list!

This recipe has been solid from the beginning. At one time it was one of the most popular recipes on FFF. Crazy, right? Guess what? We still LOVE brussel sprouts and we barely changed the recipe. Let’s chat all things BRUSSEL SPROUTS for a minute.

We are not talking about frozen brussel sprouts, here. I know many people that hate brussel sprouts because they grew up on frozen brussel sprouts. If you’re into the frozen brussel sprouts thing, more power to you. However, those things are mushier than wet leaves on a crisp fall day after it’s rained. Do you feel me?

If you are someone who grew up on frozen brussel sprouts, take the time to give these grilled balsamic brussel sprouts a try! I love tossing brussel sprouts with a little bit of olive oil so they crisp up and a little bit of balsamic vinegar so they caramelize. It is a heavenly combination.

Tips on How to Cook Brussel Sprouts

  • Make sure you wash your brussel sprouts and pat them dry
  • You can cook your brussel sprouts in the oven or on the grill, just make sure you set your temperature to 450ºF
  • We love cooking our brussel sprouts with balsamic, olive oil, and garlic. Feel free to add your favorite spice combination to your brussel sprouts
  • Cook them longer than you think! The inside takes longer and the crispier the better on the outside!
  • We prefer roasted brussel sprouts and grilled brussel sprouts over steamed brussel sprouts.

Now, add brussels sprouts to the grocery list and give them a chance this week! #brusselsforlife
