If you are tired of grilling the usual steaks, chicken and cheeseburgers, now is the time to try something new! You will never look at your grill the same way again!
1. Grilled Pizza
You can get flavors similar to those expensive wood-fired pizzas. Simply add your favorite toppings to a (pre-grilled) homemade crust and gently place on the grill. The crust will be chewy and slightly charred giving a new depth of flavor!
Toppings: tomato sauce, herbs, cheese (mozzarella is the best), thinly sliced onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, or pepperoni
Some flour or corn meal for dusting the cookie sheet
Coat the grilled surface of the pizza with a little olive oil, then cover with 1 ladle of sauce, no more, or you’ll end up with a soggy pizza. Sprinkle on your toppings, ending with mozzarella cheese (if using), and if using meat, put that over the cheese. Remember to go light on the toppings, or your pizza will be soggy.
2. Baked Potatoes
No need to heat up the kitchen this summer. All you have to do is coat the potato with butter and sea salt, wrap in aluminum foil and toss on the grill. No mess!
Kids love this! While you are eating your meal, dessert can be on the grill!
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/4 cups baking mix
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 medium nectarine, sliced (1 cup)
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Heat gas or charcoal grill. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix baking mix, 1/2 cup of the sugar and the milk; beat 30 seconds.
In 9-inch round foil cake pan, melt butter on grill over medium heat. Pour batter over butter in pan. Top with nectarine and blueberries. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon.
