KETO GRILLED BRUSSELS SPROUTS ON A STICK
No matter what the weather, my Keto Grilled Brussels Sprouts on a Stick shine.
Grilled Brussels Sprouts on a Stick
Any time of year, you can find me grilling. In the snow. In the rain. In the sunshine. Now sometimes, that is because I’m getting paid from catering customers—not because I’m quite that crazy. When the weather is clear, I enjoy pulling out my Weber kettle grill. Since I exclusively use charcoal at home, I like to make sure I cook everything that I can over the coals. I created Grilled Brussels Sprouts on a Stick so that I could make a complete dinner.
Before we ate keto, I would make a sweet vinaigrette for Sam to enjoy on her Grilled Brussels Sprouts on a Stick. Now that we live gluten free, sugar free, and low carb, I created a bacon dressing for taste and to up the fat. I prep the dish in the morning or the beginning of the week and cook it when we’re ready for a grilled meal.
Chef Alexa demonstrates how to skewer Brussels sprouts by sticking them with pointy end through the core.
Serve Grilled Brussels Sprouts on a Stick with other foods that you cook by flame. Lately, I’ve been on a Barbecue Chicken Wing kick because of the new KetoLuxe Sweet and Tangy Barbecue Sauce. It pairs perfectly with Brussels sprouts. Remember to prep ahead to save time and enjoy fresh foods. That’s living KetoLuxe.
I like to serve this dish with grilled wings so that the entire meal is done at once.
