You BBQ’d What!?!

Nothing tops that sweet, smokey smell that begins to radiate through the community this time of year. Nothing pairs quite as well with sunshine as something fresh off the grill. From classic items like hotdogs and burgers to more modern BBQ favorites like kebabs and salmon we all have our go-to BBQ recipes. These are all delicious choices, but I like to get a little creative with my grilling. I would argue that most anything you would normally cook in the oven can be adapted for the grill! Here are some of my personal BBQ favorites!

1. BBQ-Goat Cheese Flatbread Pizza (4 servings)

This option is a fun way to get the whole family or a large group of friends involved in cooking supper!

4 individual flatbreads
BBQ sauce
Fresh spinach
Diced peppers, red onions, broccoli
1 pkg. of Goat’s Cheese

1.Spread the sauce on one side of each piece of flatbread.
2.Set the BBQ to low heat
3.Place the flatbread on the grill
4.Have everyone add their own toppings to their pizza
5.Once the cheese melts, remove from the grill. You can buy pizza lifters for the BBQ or you can do it using a large spatula. If the bread was thick enough it should be easy to remove.

You can adapt this to whatever your favorite pizza sauce and topping combo is! Curry, pesto, tomato, béchamel, and flavoured oils are all good sauce options. Some other great pizza toppings are corn, diced meat, asparagus, eggplant, and zucchini.

2.French Fries (4 servings)


8 small-medium sized potatoes
Olive oil
BBQ seasoning mix (onion powder, cracked black pepper, sea salt, and garlic)
Tinfoil or grill pan

1.Cut the potatoes into fry-sized strips (~cm²)
2.Lay the fries in a single layer on foil or pan
3.Drizzle oil on fries and toss them around.
4.Sprinkle seasoning mix to taste
5.Turn the grill to high and place the tinfoil or pan on the grill.
6.Toss the fries around every 5-10 minutes
7.Remove when they’re cooked to your preference (Approx. 30 mins).

3.Circus Donuts
1 pkg. of old fashioned sugar coated donuts

1.Place the donuts over medium heat until they have a few grill marks! Simple as that!

4. Brussel Sprouts

brussell sprouts (I use frozen)
Balsamic vinegar
Cracked black pepper
Cooked bacon (optional)

1.Toss all ingredients together in a bowl
2.Wrap in tinfoil leaving an opening at the top
3.Place on grill on high heat
4.When the top is crispy, they’re done!

Brussell sprouts can be substituted with asparagus or zucchini

4.Sticky Salmon (4 servings)mare_fennel_and_dill_rubbed_grilled_salmon_v
