About these easy grilling recipes
From grilled pizzas to kabobs, from delicious potatoes on the grill to grilled stuffed French toast (!), you’ll find an exciting variety of recipes here. I promise you, none of them are complicated. They won’t take the whole day to make because that sort of defeats the purpose of grilling, right? You want an easy meal that’s prepared outside so you don’t have to spend the day sweating in your hot kitchen.
Want an easy recipe for grilled salmon? Got it! Like the taste of wood-fired pizza? Try making pizza on the grill. It may not be a wood-fired oven but it sure tastes like it. I have a few easy grilled pizza recipes for you to try. Once you get the hang of grilling pizza, you’ll want to try it with all your favorite toppings.
Wish you could make dessert on the grill, too? Try grilled fresh pineapple served over your favorite ice cream, topped with bourbon caramel sauce, a fabulous ending to a summer time dinner! A homemade pudding pop would be perfect, too!
And chicken! There’s nothing like marinated chicken done on the grill–so juicy and flavorful! Whether it’s drumsticks, thighs, or boneless skinless chicken breasts, a quick soak in an easy marinade will do wonders! I have a collection of eight great marinades for chicken, including tequila lime (think Qdoba!), ginger garlic soy, and an easy beer marinade.
More of a dry rub kind of cook? Try this versatile BBQ rub on pork chops or ribs, chicken, or salmon. Make a jar of dry rub to keep in your pantry and it’s ready when you are. Just sprinkle the BBQ rub on the meat of your choice, rub it in and let it do its magic while the grill preheats. You’ll get loads of flavor and a nice crispy coating on your meat.
Make a bowl of creamy coleslaw in the morning or this easy orzo pasta salad to round out the meal. Throw some garlic bread on the grill and you’re good to go.
