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.

  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.

It wasn't until just a few years ago that I started liking Brussels spouts. I've not grilled them so that's now on the list to try!

I am a bit of a roasted Brussels Sprouts addict. Like I make them for lunch sometimes too. I've never grilled them straight on the grill before and feel like now I need to. These look incredible!

Grilling sprouts is the one thing I haven't done with them. You can bet I'm going to change that. They look so delicious.
I love the idea of grilling sprouts! I bet they get nice and crispy!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
