Tasty Tuesday: Get Out The Grill!

One of my favorite things about summertime is whipping out the grill and doing some outdoor cooking!  The kids love to help, everybody gathers around and it somehow becomes an event.  This week I’m trying to get away from the same old burgers, sausages and hot dogs to bring you some different recipe ideas for your next cookout!

1) Stuffed Bananas

These stuffed bananas from Karly of Buns In My Oven are the perfect way to make dessert while you already have the grill out for supper!  Use any toppings you’d like, throw them on the grill while you eat your meal and they’ll be ready just in time using the remaining heat from the grill.

2) Jerk Chicken Wings

Cooking smaller or more fragile pieces of meat is super easy when you use a foil packet, like with these Jerk Chicken Wings from the Food Network.

3) Grilled Veggies

Grilling vegetables really helps to bring out their flavor and the grill marks add so much flare to the presentation!  These grilled zucchini slices from Another Pint Please were brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with oregano before grilling and you could do the same with asparagus or grill up fave veggies like potatoes and corn on the cob.

4) Three Cheese Potatoes

Why stick to boring old baked potatoes when you can grill up these Three Cheese Potatoes from Taste of Home?  Using the foil packet technique again you can easily make these delicious potatoes on the grill while the rest of your meal is cooking.

5) Marinated Shrimp

These marinated grilled shrimp from MomAdvice use only a few simple ingredients but are super tasty!  You could serve these either warm or chilled, but something about cooking them on the grill makes them taste so good.

6) Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken

The combination of chili pepper and brown sugar in this Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken recipe from Diary Of A Recipe Addict make for a yummy twist on the classic barbecue chicken.  And isn’t everything just better with bacon?

7) Beef Skewers With Yakitori Marinade

Grilled foods on a stick, like these Beef Skewers with Yakitori marinade from Chef Curtis Stone make summer entertaining easy.  Finger foods are great for mingling and cleanup is a breeze!
