Grilled kabobs are delicious dinners to look forward to through the winter, but after a few weeks you may be looking for new, exciting options for your dinner menu. Well, as it turns out, you’re not stuck with heading indoors to the kitchen to stand in front of a hot stove - grilling is actually a pretty versatile option! From an unusual salad entree right down to the dessert course, there’s an option for every taste bud. Maybe even an option that looks good for tonight...take advantage of that outdoor kitchen space and fire up the grill!
Start your dinner off right with a smoky and crisp grilled lettuce salad! Who new salads could be so delicious? Plus, the first course will make you look like a pro.
Brussels Sprouts used to top the unwanted vegetable list, but not after trying them on the grill! In skewers or tossed with oil in veggie grill baskets, you can’t beat ‘em.
Alongside your usual peppers and corn, think about adding some grilled artichokes to the mix. They’re delicious and healthy (and grilling them is much more fun than boiling them)!
Everyone loves pizza night, but not everyone loves ordering out all the time (especially when it means compromising on toppings). Instead, how about a pizza night you get to have outdoors? With this grilled pizza recipe you can enjoy summer weather, and everyone gets their own dish.
Have you ever wonder why they call it grilled cheese when you almost never see it being actually grilled? Well once you try it on the grill, with thick-cut bread and melty cheese, you’ll never enjoy grilled cheese without real grill marks the same way again. These also make a great option for non-meat eaters at a cookout.
Easily one of the most satisfying grilled fruits out there is the pineapple. Cut in thick chunks and drizzled with honey or simply chopped and put on skewers, grilled pineapple is a great side, dessert, or anytime snack.
Peaches are a perfect summer fruit, and who knew you could make them even better with the help of your grill? Keep them simple for a delicious, healthy side, or indulge with this recipe for cinnamon sugar butter and top with ice cream.
As a side or a dessert, grilled bananas (with or without the s’more-like toppings) can’t be beat. The heat brings out the sweetness of the fruit (though the toppings will satisfy every sweet tooth present)!
What would dinner be without dessert? Well, you don’t have to reach into a hot oven to be able to serve blueberry cobbler to your family or guests - this grilled option can’t be beat.
These are often a breakfast food, but who says you can’t have breakfast for dessert as well as dinner? Orange-infused cinnamon rolls are a favorite for home-grilling OR camping, and they’re fun for kids to help out with too!
Finally, you would never guess one of the easiest grilled desserts out there - grilled poundcake. Yep, we’re serious - you can throw thick slices of pound cake (or shortcake, or zucchini bread...even doughnuts) right on the grill for a warm, delicious end to an amazing summer meal!
