This lightning-fast side dish produces deliciously sweet Brussels sprouts, thanks to honey that caramelizes and crispy, salty bacon. They're so good your kids will even eat them! If the Brussels sprouts are hard to skewer, consider microwaving them a minute longer and then try skewering again. If you'd like to make this Brussels sprouts recipe vegetarian, simply omit the bacon.

  • 1 pound fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 slices center-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high (400°F to 450°F). Place Brussels sprouts in a microwavable bowl with water, and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH until Brussels sprouts are tender, about 4 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk together oil, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add Brussels sprouts, and toss until evenly coated.
  3. Thread Brussels sprouts (about four each) onto 10 (8-inch) wooden skewers; reserve remaining dressing in bowl. Place skewers on oiled grates and grill, uncovered, until charred, about 1 minute per side.
  4. Transfer skewers to a serving platter or remove from skewers before serving. Drizzle with remaining dressing; top with crumbled bacon and serve.
