I love summer for many reasons, but grilling out is right up there with my favorites. Burgers and hot dogs are the kids’ top choice for grilling, but I love grilled chicken fajitas best of all. Brian’s a pro at grilling the chicken so it’s incredibly tender and full of flavor, and the meat is perfect to use for all sorts of leftovers in the following days.
I’ve got to admit that when I think of grilling I tend to fall into a rut (a delicious rut, but a rut nonetheless); we tend to grill with the same 4-5 recipes. While scoping out Pinterest, though, I’ve discovered SO many amazing recipes to spice up our routine. So, of course, I had to share these finds with you, because I love you so. And because now I’ve got an easy reference for new grilling recipes to try. But mainly because I love you. Promise.
Among the offerings today, you’ll find:
- Prosciutto-wrapped asparagus – yes, please! I was late to the asparagus-loving game, but now I’m a fan, and this rendition from MomSpotted looks incredibly flavorful.
- Grilled zucchini rolls from Menu Musings – a lovely presentation for an all-star grilling veggie. I can’t wait to make these as an appetizer for the next time we have company.
- Grilled banana dessert bar – I had NO clue you could grill bananas (with any success, anyway) but now I can’t wait to try it – I’ve just got to figure out what toppings to try first! Thanks to Home Cooking Memories for this fun summer party dessert idea.
- Rainbow veggie skewers – if these don’t make your kids clamor to eat their veggies, I don’t know what will. I love the burst of color (and flavor) this creative recipe from Gimme Some Oven offers up.
