It’s Grilling Season


It's Grilling Season

Just a few quick and easy recipe ideas to get your grilling season started.

Hash Browns

  • package of frozen hash browns (I microwave mine on high for 4 minutes while still in the vacuum sealer bag)
  • two layers of heavy duty aluminum foil
  • spray foil with cooking spray
  • place hash browns on foil
  • add a few pats of butter
  • add a seasoning mix, I use Emeril‘s Essence
  • close foil place on high flame for about 20 minutes

Baked Potato

  • slice a potato about 3/4ths along the longest direction (Here’s some awesome spiralizers to use!)
  • fill slice with butter and a slice of onion (Here are some great onion choppers for you!)
  • wrap in foil
  • place on indoor grill on high
  • cook until poked with a fork feels soft

Moist Hamburgers

Add a little ranch dressing to your hamburger before making patties, this will add flavor and moisture to patties. The ranch flavor isn’t distinguishable.

  • cut salmon into serving sized pieces
  • in a glass measuring cup melt 4 tbs of butter
  • add to the melted butter, about a 1/4 cup of salmon seasoning (I buy mine at Sam’s Club)
  • paint this mixture onto one side of the fish, if the fish has skin on, place skin side down for grilling
  • place fish directly on grill, cook until fork tender
  • If the fish seems like it might crumble, you can wrap it in foil

Corn on the Cob

  • purchase corn in husk
  • soak in water
  • place directly onto indoor grill
  • remove husk after cooking or just pull down and use as a handle

BBQ Onions

  • Peel Onions
  • slice onions into 1/4 inch or less slices with onion chopper
  • place on foil
  • gently cover with your favorite BBQ sauce
  • close foil packet and place on grill for about 20 minutes

Grilling Chicken

  • marinate chicken in a zip lock bag with Italian Dressing for at least 20 minutes or as long as over night. Note: you can also use a vacuum marinator! They work similar to a vacuum sealer, but are meant to better marinade your food! You can also inject the dressing with a meat injector.
  • Place chicken directly on grill
  • discard zip lock and any remaining liquid
  • Grill chicken until done

  • Basically any kind of veggies, some suggestions: onions, peppers, squash, mushrooms
  • In a large bowl, toss sliced veggies with Italian Dressing
  • Add minced garlic or onion powder to taste (Here are some great garlic presses for you!)
  • Transfer to a double layer of foil and wrap into a tight packet
  • Cook on medium heat for about 45 minutes to an hour

BBQ Chicken

  • While many people cook their chicken directly on the grill, I use a disposable foil pan
  • Place chicken in pan on grill on medium to high heat
  • cover with BBQ sauce
  • Cook until juices run clear
  • Very Moist, grilled flavor but no burnt BBQ Sauce!
