Drop the Burger: 5 Unique Foods to Try Grilling
Grilling season is in full swing, so make sure to take full advantage of all that your grill can offer. Although cheeseburgers and chicken breasts can be delicious entrees in your weekly dinner lineup, these classics aren’t the only foods that you can master on the grill. Turn up the flame and get ready add some new excitement to your grilling routine:
Warm cheese and crackers create the easiest (and yummiest) appetizer ever. Halloumi, Provolone and Brie are a few popular cheese varieties to warm on the grill before serving. Topping cheese with slivered almonds, fresh fruit or spices adds flavor variety! A must try recipe: Grilled Raspberry Brie.
For a crispier and more flavorful pizza, test out your Friday night favorite on the grill. Create a unique pizza combination and heat your grill to around 550°F, but just remember cooking times may vary by grill. If it’s your first time grillin’ pizza, you can play it safe by following a recipe. Here’s one of our top picks: Goat Cheese & Arugula Pesto Pizza.
The classic sandwich for lunch doubles as a filling dinner. Grill your favorite sandwich for melted insides that pair perfectly with the “crunch” from the bread. Hello, panini upgrade! Add this recipe to your list: Chipotle Honey Roasted Peanut Butter and Peach Grilled Sandwich.
Grilling fruits like peaches, watermelon, apples and figs is all the rage. When you grill fruit, the heat causes the natural sugar to caramelize and bring out the fruit flavor and add a gentle smoky flavor—perfect for a side dish or healthy dessert. We’re currently obsessed with: Bacon Wrapped Grilled Peaches with Balsamic Glaze.
Stuffed Waffle Cones
Customize dessert with stuffed waffle cones that are perfect to enjoy outdoors. Fill a cone with strawberries, dark chocolate, coconut or any other of your favorite sweet treat combinations, then wrap in aluminum foil before grilling. Keep a close eye; it won’t take long to melt! Give this recipe a try: Strawberry, Banana & Chocolate Waffle Cone.
