Four Things You Didn’t Know You Could Cook on the Grill
But if you want something a little different this Monday, here are four things from iVillage.com that you didn’t know you could cook on the grill. Click through to check out the list!
#1.) Lettuce. Before you make a salad, throw a couple heads of romaine lettuce on the grill for a few minutes. It’ll stay crisp but give the salad a smoky taste. Add grilled chicken to the salad to make it more of an entrée.
#2.) Breakfast. If you’re having an EARLY barbecue, try cooking French toast and breakfast sausage on the grill. It’ll be different than usual, but still delicious. You can also cook bacon outside on the grill. It cooks nicely and doesn’t stink up your house. There is nothing worse than a bacon smelling house.
#3.) Green Beans. Maybe you’ve cooked things like asparagus and corn-on-the-cob on the grill. But it’s great for green beans too. Just make sure you have a pan, or a flat surface to put them on so they don’t fall through the grate.
If you don’t snap the ends off before you cook them, they work as a finger-food you can use with dip.
#4.) Clams. If you put them in a pan over the fire, they’ll open right up. Then grill some lemons, add some garlic, and you’re good to go.
Because of the awesome weather we have been having in Twin Falls, Memorial Day is the first day of the year that I plan on firing up the grill. And obviously, hot dogs and hamburgers are the staple at most barbecues.
