Vegetables shouldn't be boring. This bacon-weaved Brussels sprouts stalk will get you more oohs and aahs than your holiday turkey.
- Prep: 15 mins
- Cook: 1 hr
- Yields: 6 servings
1Heat the smoker or grill to 375 degrees with indirect heat.
2Drizzle the olive oil, salt and pepper over the entire stalk of sprouts.
3Peel the garlic and slice each clove. Tuck the cloves into the sprouts.
4Cut the lemon in half. Save one half for later. Slice the other half into small slices and tuck into the sprouts.
5Slice the bacon in half vertically. Weave the strips of bacon around the cloves throughout the stalk.
6Place the stalk on the grill and cook for 45 minutes to an hour, until the sprouts are soft.
7Combine the juice from the remaining half of lemon with the melted butter. Drizzle over the entire stalk.
It makes a pretty presentation to serve the entire stalk at the table. You can carve the sprouts off tableside.
If you prefer to serve the sprouts in a bowl, carve them off with a knife. Add the bacon and roasted garlic to the bowl. Discard the lemons. Add melted lemon butter, and toss.
You can also roast this in a 375-degree oven for 45 minutes to an hour. Keep an eye on it toward the end, so you don't burn the bacon.
