brussels sprouts, garlic, gluten free, grilled, honey, mustard, side dish, vegetable, vegetarian
I desperately want my husband to like Brussels sprouts. I have fixed them several different ways but he just won’t like them. Sadly, this recipe is no exception. That’s ok- MORE FOR ME!!!! The mustard and garlic add a bit of zippiness while the honey caramelizes and browns with the grill’s heat making these baby cabbages are super tasty and even good left over. He may not like these but I will still be fixing them. 🙂
Mustard Marinated Grilled Brussels Sprouts (a variation of this recipe)
- 1 lb fresh Brussles sprouts
- 2 tbsp whole grain mustard
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
- 3 skewers (if wood, soak for 30 minutes in water)
In a large pot, add water and salt. Bring to a boil. Boil the Brussels sprouts for 2 to three minutes. Drain and add to icy water to stop the cooling process. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes then drain.
In a medium bowl, combine the mustard, oil, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Add the Brussels spouts to the mustard mixture and allow to marinate for 30 minutes. Thread the Brussels sprouts onto the skewers. Grill them over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. If you have leftover marinade, spoon over the skewers after you turn them. The outer leaves will be lightly charred when they are done. Serves 2.

I usually stick to roasting brussels sprouts in the oven, but this looks delicious!
It is wonderful. I suspect that oven roasting these would be just as tasty.
Yum! These look delicious!! I am a huge fan of brussels sprouts. My husband also used to hate them, but ever since I roasted them in the oven with a splash of olive oil, bacon and pine nuts, he’s been a fan. I’m imagining that you’ve tried that already? 😦 I am definitely going to try this mustard recipe. We don’t have a BBQ but I might try oven roasting them in the marinade mixture. Yum! Thanks (brussels sprout lovers unite!)
I have tried that 😦 I think roasting them in the oven would be about the same as the grill. You might lose a bit of the smoky flavor of the grill but not enough to really matter. Let me know what you think when you make these…
Too bad for him. Brussels sprouts are great!
I feel bad for his palate… But at least he does try new things. I guess this is just one thing I won’t be able to convince him is tasty.
Wonderful idea Michelle! I’ll try this in the oven.
Wow, great idea! Last Christmas I shredded them and added pancetta, white wine and cream – they were very popular (I think mostly because they didn’t LOOK like sprouts! This is definitely going on the Christmas cooking list 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Camilla
Oh that sounds wonderful! Can a recipe with wine, cream and pancetta ever go wrong?!
This looks amazing!! I love brussels sprouts!
Thank you! I thought they were pretty tasty. I will certainly be making them again…
