With warmer weather upon us in the northern hemisphere, the smell of charcoal, bonfires and charred food fills the air.
While I am not a fan of the heat of summer, I do love grilled food. Cooking seems like less of a chore when I can just toss it all on the grill.
Here’s some of my favorite things to grill aside from the standard burgers and hotdogs. I’ve tried to include mains and sides, along with some recipes I have bookmarked (or pinned) that I have been wanting to try.
Grilled Chicken Diablo from OAMM – My kids are not fans of spicy, but they gobble this up every time I make it! I use sriracha for the hot sauce and cut the amount down to 1/3 of a cup.
Orange Grilled Salmon – I love the brightness the oranges bring to the salmon. Plus, it’s super easy!
Sweet & Tangy Grilled Chicken – My kids love a sweet & tangy combo! Easy marinade and flavorful chicken.
Grilled Romaine Hearts with Avocado Lime Dressing – Thug Kitchen is one of my absolute favorite food blogs! This vegan recipe is sure to please even the meat eaters in your life.
I also love to cook veggies on the grill. Toss asparagus with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper (sometimes I do a little garlic powder, too). Remove all but a couple layers on husk from corn on the cob, toss it on the top rack of the grill and let it steam itself inside the husk. Turns out perfect every time! Veggie kabobs are always a favorite of mine (you can always add meat to yours, if you so choose).
Something I have always wanted to try, but have always been a little afraid of… grilled pizza! The Kitchen lays it out step-by-step. I’m definitely going to have to give this a try over the next few weeks! Maybe we can have a make-you-own pizza night combined with Game Night.
