Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Grilled Apricots + Toasted Hazelnuts

I don’t know about you, but I am OBSESSED with brussels sprouts. They are generally more of a winter food, but I crave these little gems all year round, so I wanted to pair them with the summery sweetness of apricots (which I also am undeniably in love with). And it.was.good. This makes for a great side dish for your weekend summer cookouts, or if you’re like me… you’ll just devour all of this as an entree. Without any further ado…
