Raise your hand if you love all things grilled! If you could see me right now, you would see both of my hands raised. There is just something about grilled food that makes it taste so much better. For example, I ate far too much baked chicken once upon a time and now I almost can’t even stand the site of just plain chicken…
But, throw that sucker on the grill and I can put it away. The grill just puts a whole new spin on things. And, not to mention, it is a great excuse to hang out in the outdoors on a beautiful day, to have a cold beer, or to invite a couple friends over for a Saturday night get together.
But let’s be honest – sometimes you want something other than a cheeseburger or a hot dog, so let’s look at a few more creative things to grill:
Who said dessert could only be done in the oven? Give a grilled lemon pound cake a try and you will be pleasantly surprised! What is more exciting than the fact that you could grill your appetizer, dinner, and dessert?
By simply forming it like a pineapple round, you can easily grill an adorable little polenta round to be enjoyed with some grilled shrimp.
This is making my mouth water now…
After trying fried artichokes for the first time, I can’t wait to try them grilled! Whip up a quick jalapeno ranch or garlic aioli to dip them in and impress all your guests.
With just a grill, some charcoal, and a few cooking utensils, you can be on your way to turning just about anything into a delicious meal!
As if you needed one more reason to grill something, it is also a healthier cooking option. Happy grilling!
