4 Things To Throw on the Grill Besides Meat

Food & Home / July 19, 2017

It’s summertime and everyone is pulling out the grill and getting away from turning on their ovens. Instead of throwing ribs and chicken on the grill over and over again, why not try throwing these things on the grill and impressing your friends in family with what is sure to become some of their new grilled favorites.

Grilled Pizza

You may not have a wood-fire oven but your grill will do the trick just as well. Grilled pizza is pretty simple to do and can you make it a fun family cooking night with everyone, especially the kids, making their own pizzas and adding their favorite toppings. Trust me, grilled pizza will be a hit and a meal that is sure to be requested all summer long.

Grilled Watermelon

Yes, that is really a thing! Most people have never even thought to through slices of watermelon on the grill but the grill caramelizes the sweetness of the watermelon and gives it a slightly smoky flavor. Cut them up in wedges and you can even season it with a little salt, lemon zest and red pepper flakes before and after grilling and serve as a side dish or dessert.

Grilled Sweet Potatoes

When you are throwing burgers on the grill, why not throw some sweet potatoes on with it? It adds a healthy touch and is very easy to prepare. Just cut your sweet potatoes into wedges, toss in olive oil and cilantro-lime dressing and throw on the grill for 10 minutes.

Grilled Pineapples

Pineapples are a great treat to throw on the grill and it satisfies that sweet tooth for anyone watching their waistline. To make these tasty treats, throw them in a resealable bag with honey, butter, hot sauce and salt and let it marinade for 30 mins or overnight. When you’re ready, grill them for about 3 mins on each side and enjoy!

What do you enjoy grilling in the summertime?
