Kosmo's Bacon-Wrapped & Grilled Brussels Sprouts with Sweet Apple Chipotle Glaze

Kosmo's Bacon-Wrapped & Grilled Brussels Sprouts with Sweet Apple Chipotle Glaze

Here we take Brussels sprouts to an entirely new and bacon-laden level. Even those who don't really appreciate these cabbage bombs will see them in a new light. The bacon tames the pungent flavor, while the tangy and mildly spicy glaze adds the perfect finishing touch.


  • 16-20 Brussels sprouts (uniform in size and about 1 1/4 inch in diameter)
  • 8-10 slices Bacon (not thick-sliced)
  • 4-5 Skewers (metal or bamboo)
  • 1 tsp Dirty Bird rub (or a mixture of seasoned salt and black pepper)
  • 1/2 cup Kosmo's Sweet Apple Chipotle barbecue sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Unsalted butter, melted

    Note The cooking method used here was inspired by Alton Brown's recipe

    How to make

      • If you're using bamboo skewers, soak them in warm water for an hour before proceeding
      • Start your grill and prepare for direct cooking at about 300º
      • Wash the sprouts then trim the stem end of each (about 1/8 inch), remove any loose leaves
      • Wrap each sprout with a half slice of bacon and arrange them in a single layer in a medium shallow microwave-safe baking dish, cover tightly with a lid or plastic wrap
      • Microwave on high for 4 minutes, then uncover and let cool until you can handle the sprouts
      • When you can safely handle the sprouts, carefully slide 4 or 5 onto each skewer. You want to skewer them through the bacon, leaving at least 1/2-inch in between each sprout
      • Sprinkle the skewered sprouts lightly with the rub/seasoning
      • Make the glaze by mixing the Sweet Apple Chipotle barbecue sauce and butter well in a small bowl, set aside
      • Grill the skewers for two minutes, roll each 1/4 turn, and grill two minutes more. Repeat this process twice more to grill the entire circumference of the sprouts, brushing each sprout with a thin coat of glaze before each of the final two rotations
      • Remove the sprouts to a serving platter, drizzle any remaining glaze, and toss gently
      • Serve and enjoy!
