I love Summer Time.
It is warm outside, it doesn’t get dark at 5:30 pm, and tans are a must! And of course, the warm nights make it so easy to grill out!
|Grilled Food… Yum!|
Grilling is a great way of cooking too! The fire imparts flavor to your food, without any added oils. Grilling may be intimidating to some, but it’s really not scary at all! To just need to know your fire!
Example: lets grill some vegetables and turkey burgers!
First step, you need to slice your vegetables. Today, I’m grilling zucchini, squash, onion, red bell pepper, and corn.
Slice the zucchini and squash lengthwise, so they are about 1/4 inch thick. But don’t cut them into small rounds, otherwise they will more easily fall through the grates!!
Slice the onion into large rounds and peel down the husk of your corn to get all the little strings out. Just don’t take the husk all the way off!
For the bell pepper, cut into thick strips, about 1/2 – 3/4 of an inch in width.
Onto the grill! Placement of the vegetables is key! The grill I was using wasn’t very powerful, so I had the fire on high heat the whole time. But if you have a nicer grill, you will need to adjust the heat accordingly.
If you are making burgers/ turkey burger, put those on over the portion of the grill with the highest heat. Same with the corn. I like to typically put the corn in the back, because it will need to cook for a little while.
Place the zucchini and onion over medium-high heat. You want them to get some nice grill marks, but you don’t want them to be charred (aka: over some flames, but not the hottest part of the grill).
The bell peppers won’t take that long to cook, so place those on the top little rack.
