Since we’ve had so much travel this month, I didn’t make a meal plan and decided to wing it. While I actually wish I had planned for even the days we’re home, going with the flow has been fine. We’ve gotten creative with our new grill and I’ve really enjoyed less clean-up inside! I decided to share some of my favorite grilling recipes with you to try out this summer!
The prettiest meal of the summer, in my opinion! We love making shishkabobs and setup a line of ingredients for everyone to help thread the skewers. My favorite way is to marinate chicken in a teriyaki sauce and give it an Asian flare with slivered almonds sprinkled on top before serving.
BBQ Chicken Packets
These look MUCH prettier in the original pin, but you won’t be sorry about making these. The cleanup is simple and you can throw whatever veggies you have into them.
I’ve been on a bit of a pork tenderloin kick lately, but mostly in sheetpan meals. Last week, I put the whole pork tenderloin straight on the grill. It cooked for about 16 minutes, rotating 4 times to make sure it was seared all around. I served it with mashed potatoes, sauerkraut and green beans and the kids loved it.
Florentine Pinwheel Steaks
This is an old recipe and also a favorite! It looks fancy, but is super simple to make.
Double Burger Wraps
This became a Whole30 favorite of ours and I continue to make it for our low carb days. The sauce/onion/lettuce combo makes it taste an awful lot like In-N-Out!
I got a ton of questions when I posted this on Instagram the other day! We loved making the pizza on the grill and it’s super quick. I use the dough from my cinnamon buns (or you can use store bought). We heated the grill, then used an olive oil soaked paper towel in tongs to wipe the grates. Once your dough is the shape you want, grill it at 400 for about 3-4 mins per side, then add toppings and allow the cheese to melt. That’s it! It would be a great party food, allowing everyone to make their own small pizza and you can even grill the dough in advance and then reheat with the toppings!
Grilled Chicken Salad
This is one of my favorite meals ever! I marinate the chicken in a gallon ziplock bag with a mix of Dijon mustard, olive oil, salt, pepper and basil. It can sit for 20 mins or all day! Start with a bed of spring mix and get creative. I love marinated onions, garbanzo beans, feta cheese, tomatoes and peppers!
Grilled Mini Meatloaf
This is a super old recipe from my blog, hence the high quality pictures! But it’s a fun twist on meatloaf, without heating up your kitchen!
Do you have any tried and true grilling recipes? I’d love to try them and will share your favorites in Instastories!
