I have a confession. In fact, the kiwi (hubs) and I both have a confession.
Ready to hear it?
We hate summer. Not the season itself, but the weather. Texas weather. There, I said it. We said it.
It’s like our winter. We stay indoors longer because it’s ridiculously hot and really never cools off, even at night. But it only lasts 3 months and the rest of the 9 months are pretty splendid, so I can’t complain. The only hard part is the training for the Kiwi Cotter. Poor guy. But he sucks it up and gets out there and does it! I make sure to spray him down with a hose after each workout too. Haha, that’s being a good Sherpa, right?
But since summer is all about grilling season I’m going to embrace it. In fact, I think I’ll embrace it the STRANGE but GOOD way.
Today I am going to share my strange but good foods to grill. I’ve asked a few people to share their oddest or most unusual grilled food and I’ve done a little experimenting myself.
My top favorite foods to throw on the grill.. whoa, I almost said girl. Focus here!
A childhood favorite- PB and Banana.
I use the crunchy Nuttzo and udis gluten free bread. Add a little butter on both sides and honey or maple syrup in the middle. OH MY HEAVENS.. MELTS in your MOUTH! You can grill it with or without foil and similar guidelines to that of a grilled cheese. Sometimes I grill or sautee the banana beforehand.
Faux Fancy Grilled Bread – Hot Dog Bun Toastinis.
I use Udis gluten free hot buns, toast them on the grill, then add in cream cheese, hummus, basil, tomato sauce, etc. This one is super easy and delicious.
My next attempt to grill toast will be for this recipe. GF toast with butter, apricot jam, feta, and balsamic glaze and honey. I’ll let you know if it works on the grill as well. I’m thinking yes, and I might even add on some fresh grilled apricots!
A vegetable you never thought to try grilling.. CUCUMBERS. I’ve done it once then I added it to a taco salad. Ya, that was GENIUS! Do it!
Other UNUSUAL foods to try on the grill. Note: I haven’t tried these yet but I plan to, one day.
Seaweed or Kelp noodles (in foil with Peanut sauce)
Cookies. Heck might as well throw on Muffins too
Not as strange but still GREAT Grills.
Lindsay from The Lean green Bean recently got into grilling beets.—> HECK YA Linz!
Abby from Back at Square Zero grilled up some peaches and frozen yogurt.
What’s that saying? If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen? … GLADLY!
Fire up the grill.
Most unusual food you have grilled or attempted to grill?
