Summer Grilling Recipe Ideas
You gave Memorial Day everything you had on the grill. Why stop there? Burgers and hot dogs started your summer; grilled chicken and pizza will keep it going.
Friday Dinner: Grilled Whole Fish
If you’ve never had whole fish before, this is a great introduction. Grilling the fish for 10 minutes on each side results in flaky, juicy flesh that gets even better with lime and cilantro. Serve this with some guacamole and chips.
Saturday Breakfast: Beans and Greens
This lentil and chard breakfast is an antidote to last weekend's burger bender, and it has some cucumber sneaking in—it’s adding a crunch and a burst of bright flavor.
Saturday Lunch: Vegetables and Burrata
Just one reason why this recipe is the perfect warm-weather holdover between breakfast and dinner: it doesn’t require any cooking.
Saturday Dinner: Grilled Chicken
The best way to cook a whole chicken on the grill is to spatchcock it. By splitting the bird in half and flattening it, you expose more of the bird to the grill grates, which helps the chicken cook quickly. To add some extra flavor, brush the exterior with a rosemary branch dipped in garlic oil. Serve with some grilled bread, scallions, and a tomato and cucumber salad.
Sunday Brunch: A B.E.T.
Bring the brunching home with this one-pan breakfast sandwich. After sizzling the bacon, toss in halved plum tomatoes (yes, you’re cooking the tomatoes in bacon fat). Crack in some eggs, and you’ve got the greatest combination of fat and acid since PB&J.
