Five Things You Didn’t Know You Could Cook on the Grill

 

Traci Taylor

The weather is going to be gorgeous this weekend and if you’re thinking of having friends over for a cookout you could serve up the typical hot dogs and hamburgers, but if you want something a little different this weekend, here are five things you didn’t know you could cook on the grill.

#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 cookout, try cooking French toast and breakfast sausage on the grill. It’ll be different than usual, but still delicious.

#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.

#5.) Pineapple. With serrated knife, cut pineapple half into 4 wedges. Rub cut sides of pineapple with brown sugar. Grill pineapple 10 minutes or until browned on both sides, turning over once.
