Grill your Brussels sprouts for crispy, caramelized green goodness

Use the grill to turn Brussels sprouts into delightfully crispy vegetables dipped in a spicy ranch dressing.

My favorite way to cook Brussels sprouts in the summer is to thread them onto skewers and pop them onto the grill. The outer leaves become crispy and sweet with natural caramelization, and the cooking happens outside so you don't overheat your kitchen. You can season the Brussels sprouts a variety of ways, but my kiddo loves to dunk them into a spicy ranch dip.
