3 Surprising Foods You Can Grill

July 22, 2013 | By | Comments (3)


If you’re growing tired of traditional summer fare (hotdogs, hamburgers, grilled corn), turn up the heat with these three tasty and unique options:

Cheese. Cook firm, salty cheeses, like halloumi (a Mediterranean-style cheese), directly on the grill over medium heat until blistered. Wrap softer cheeses that crumble or melt, like feta or brie, in foil and heat until warmed through.

Sweets. Toss halved doughnuts on the grill until toasted and any glaze or frosting is melted. Pound cake also tastes great with a smoky flair. Simply spread butter onto a slice of cake and grill until toasted.

Fruit. Slice pineapples into spears and grill over direct heat until caramelized. Or, halves bananas (in their peels) and cook until soft to upgrade a banana split.

More grilling tips and tricks.

    Make Banana Boats1 Take a firm banana, leave it in the skin, slice a slit lengthwise and stuff with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. Wrap in foil and grill until the chips & marshmallows melt. Made these at Girl Scout camp growing up.

    I’m sorry, but how does one know the chips & `mallows are melted if it’s wrapped in foil? Just sayin`. . . .
