1lbbrussel sprouts(fresh, whole - about 15 - rinsed and ends trimmed)
⅛teaspooneach, salt & pepper
8slicesbacon(or ½ the amount of brussel sprouts, cut into halves)
Steam the rinsed, trimmed brussel sprouts for about 5 minutes to soften them before grilling. Rinse under cool water.
In a small microwave safe bowl melt the butter and add honey and smoked paprika, stir to combine. Set aside.
In a medium to large mixing bowl (large enough for your brussel sprouts) coat the cooled brussel sprouts with the honey butter mixture. Wrap each brussel sprout with a half strip of the bacon, then arrange on skewers by inserting the skewer through the point where you overlap the bacon ends. Top with salt and pepper.
Grill on your barbecue for about 5-10 minutes, depending on the heat. Rotate the brussel sprouts during grilling to cook evenly and prevent burning on any one side. Remove from the grill when nicely browned and fork tender. Serve immediately, topped with your favorite bbq sauce (optional).
