Grilled Brussels Sprouts

May is National BBQ Month, and this week the Festive Foodies and I will be sharing lots of great recipes that will be perfect to serve at your next get together!  I'm kicking things off with some grilled Brussels sprouts.  I was never a big fan of them until I tried them roasted, and I've been waiting patiently for the weather to turn seasonally appropriate to make them on the grill.  

I was able to get my hands on fresh Brussels sprouts, but you can definitely use frozen or steam in bag if you can't. I used red and yellow bell peppers and Bermuda onions because I think it made for a pretty presentation. 

I found it easier to brush the veggies with the oil and season them after I'd placed them on the grill, but be sure to watch for flare ups if you do it that way! Normally I'd use metal skewers, but I was unable to locate them.  Be sure to soak the wooden variety very well.  I rushed mine, and they were getting a bit charred on the ends.  You don't want to have your beautiful meal go up in flames!

I loved these the day of, and they also were great as leftovers.  You can definitely use any veggies you like, but be sure to cut them all about the same size and give anything a head start in the microwave or the steamer basket that will take longer than the allotted time to cook.

Grilled Brussels Sprouts



  • 16 fresh Brussels sprouts (about 1-1/2-inch diameter), trimmed
  • 1 medium sweet red and yellow bell pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


How to cook Grilled Brussels Sprouts

  1. In a large saucepan, place a steamer basket over 1 in. of water. Bring water to a boil. Place Brussels sprouts in basket. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer; steam, covered, until crisp-tender, 4-6 minutes. Cool slightly; cut each sprout in half.
  2. Cut red pepper and onion into 1-1/2-in. pieces. On four metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread Brussels sprouts, bell pepper, and onion pieces. Mix salt, garlic powder and pepper. Brush vegetables with oil; sprinkle with salt mixture. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat until vegetables are tender, 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally.

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!   Fried Lasagna P

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

  Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

Southern Bird Dogs

We're eating lots of poultry lately, and I've started hearing the grumbling from my family.   With the grill covered with snow and ice again (yay New England!), my options were a little limited.    Staring at the package of chicken tenders in my fridge, I wondered what I could do to them that would be exciting and different.   I had a few hot dog rolls and 4 strips of bacon that needed to be used up. Enter Southern Bird Dogs.  I saw this recipe on She Wears Many Hats .   She used storebought chicken tenders, but recommended this recipe from Add A Pinch to make them from scratch.    I had everything on hand except the buttermilk.     I used the "add vinegar to regular milk" trick instead.   The only problem is that though that mimics the tang of buttermilk, it doesn't have that nice thick consistency.    My first coating on the chicken seemed thin, so I let them sit for 20 mins, then put them back through the milk and flour mixtures again.    I gave them another
