Brussel Sprouts 1

I could have sworn I hated Brussel Sprouts. I’m almost positive I despise them. I asked my parents, they agreed that surely I couldn’t stand them.

But then I grilled them.

And now I love them.

I adapted this recipe from one I saw on another BBQ Blog – Grill Grrrl. She has outstanding recipes – I highly recommend you check it out. I was looking for a veggie side dish to make and this one jumped out to me.  I really love using cast iron on the grill, plus it involved balsamic vinegar and garlic (two of my favorite ingredients), so this was a perfect recipe to try.

Delicious. You’ll love these. Garlic yumminess, crispy exterior, and an awesome vinegar tang. Grilled Brussel Sprouts will become a regular in the grilled veggie rotation at our house.
