Sprouts are my absolutely favorite veggie! (fresh in season)
When I was a kid, they would make me actually gag though!
I didn't learn to like them til I was in my mid-twenties...
I still hate them when they are cooked to death and turn into mush...
which is why I probably hated them as a kid, as that is the way they were cooked in the 50's-60's...
They also make a great slaw... shreaded thin and saute'd quickly with some shreaded carrots & thin sliced onion... cool, add mayo, vinegar, sugar... YUMMMMMM!!!

They are also great when done with a slow cooked Ham Hock (like you'd do collared greens)...
add the sprouts at the very end til just done... don't overcook!

Brian - I have a sucky ceramic/glass whatever they are called cooktop and I have been unable to find a grill pan with a flat bottom on it that can be used on it. At least not here.

I want a grill so bad, but Bill's hesitant. Perhaps he thinks I'll make him start cooking again?

I hate those glass cooktops!!!
Not a fan of any electric, but those are the worst!!!
Give me a gas range anyday!
Just think of the GEBE $$$ you'd save with a gas grill???

Brian, I have a cast iron pan similar to yours, and it works quite well on the stove top. Cast iron does such a good job of transferring heat.

I had a cast iron one years ago...
I love cast iron (my fry pans, Dutch ovens), but the griddle was so heavy, I opted for the adonized aluminum...
It has about same heat properties... and 1/2 the weight...
Gave the cast iron one to our son and he still uses it...

The big thing I didn't like about the Wagner Cast Iron grill we had was all the sand casting "dimples" on the flat grill surface...
They would never go away, even with really agressive seasoning...
The adonized aluminum one seasond right away...
and is better than the best teflon pan I have ever had...
For eggs, I don't need any butter/oil... but yes, I still use butter LOL!

I have my grandmother's cast iron frying pan & Dutch Oven (both circa about 1880, she got them from my great-grandmother)...
They are the absolute BEST! I will never part with them!

Thanks for sharing the recipe. I just harvested the first sprouts from my garden and was wondering how to cook them.

I've got a different type of grilling pan that would work well for roasting brussels sprouts, and you wouldn't have to bother with the skewers. It's a rectangular pan with small round holes cut through it. It's designed to sit on top of the rack on the grill, so you can cook smaller foods like this without them falling through. You can place the food on it and easily stir it around to grill it evenly. I like it for things like mushrooms or making rosemary roasted potatoes. It's small enough so that you can use the other half of the grill for the meat. Because of the holes, the food gets some of the "grilled" flavor it wouldn't get from a solid pan.

I have one of those, and I love it! I make grilled veggies in it all the time.

I made these tonight for my parents, along with some grilled tuna steaks & sweet potatoes... The three of us polished off almost 2 pounds of them! They were all different sizes so I grilled them in a grill basket for about 20 minutes, tossing them around every 5.

I love Brussels sprouts pretty much any way they can be cooked, but I miiiight be able to even get my husband to give these a shot. Thanks for posting this!
