Grilled Brussels Sprouts
12 small to medium Brussels Sprouts
1-2 tablespoons Virgin Olive Oil
½ teaspoon Salt
½-1 teaspoon cracked Black Pepper
½-1 teaspoon Onion Powder
½-1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
½-1 Celery Salt
1 handful crumbled Bacon (optional)
1 teaspoon Lemon Zest (optional)
1 tablespoon Parmesan Cheese grated or shredded (optional)
Clean the sprouts and trim the cut ends back making sure the leaves stay intact. Peel any withered leaves off of the bulb. Score the bottoms. Just one cut will be enough.
Place the sprouts in boiling, salted water for no more than 5 minutes.
Drain, drizzle with oil and toss in a bowl with the salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and celery salt
When the sprouts are nice and coated, place on a hot grill (being sure to keep the bowl with the oil and seasoning close by), turning every four minutes for a total of twelve minutes.
Remove from the grill back to the seasoning bowl and toss to coat with any remaining seasoning.
If desired, add any or all of the remaining three ingredients (bacon, lemon zest, parmesan cheese)
