The end of summer doesn’t mean the end of barbecue season; fall is just as suitable for cooking in the great outdoors. From entrees to side dishes, there are plenty of appetizing recipes sure to tickle your tongs.
For starters, try one of the following:
Greek Chicken Kabobs
If saying goodbye to hot, sunny days is harder than you expected, this chicken kabob recipe might help. Full of garlic, lemon, herbs, and flavors of the Mediterranean, it’s a light, fresh dish that’s ideal for a warm autumn afternoon. Eat the chicken as a main course, make a gyro, or pair it with pasta.
You don’t have to be a vegetarian to hang out with this fungi! Portobello mushrooms are full of nutrients and taste. They can be grilled in 20 minutes and stuffed with various ingredients. Even without a filling, they offer a meaty texture that tends to satisfy the most stubborn carnivore.
Sliders of any kind make a wonderful option for tailgating fare, but bison sliders offer a healthier, more succulent experience than other meats. When compared to beef, bison is a bit gamier but lower in cholesterol, allowing you to root for the home team and your arteries.
While grilled cheese is most often made on the stove or in a toaster oven, using a barbecue can make this comfort food cozier. The heat from the grill leaves the bread extra crispy and adds a smoky, deep tinge. Try it on a cold fall evening with the obligatory cup of tomato soup.
Nothing says autumn like pumpkin-spiced everything. While grilled pumpkin doesn’t result in the same flavor as a Starbucks latté, it might entirely change the way you think about this fruit. Heating pumpkin causes the sugars to caramelize, bringing out its sweetness and making a delightful side dish. ‘Tis the season, after all.
Whether you’re into health food or have never met a slab of meat you wouldn’t eat, the above fall recipes offer mouth-watering ways to celebrate the changing of the seasons. Go ahead and dig into all of the deliciousness.
