Banana Boats on the grill

Dessert on the grill….is there anything better??  We used to make banana boats over the campfire when I was a kid. For our month of grilled recipes, I figured I should give them a shot on the grill. They were a HIT!

 

Here is what you need:

Foil

Bananas

mini marshmallows

milk chocolate chips

cinnamon

Cut a 12 inch piece of foil.  Take your banana and cut it in half. Sprinkle with marshmallows, chocolate chips and a little cinnamon.

No Child Left Behind

Frisco Fast Pac

Last week my beautiful Friend Karen asked if we would be interested in helping our local shelter provide food for children who experience hunger on a regular basis in our community. Especially during the summer when school is not in session and these children aren’t getting regular meals provided. Frisco FastPacs is the name and I’m sure your local family shelter has something similar.  It was a great activity for our kiddos to participate in, and an awesome way to give back to our community.  If your looking for something to do with your kiddos this summer take some of your shopping savings and pay it forward!

Jacked Chicken on the grill

As a part of our month of grilled recipes, I came up with this pretty amazing chicken. It is packed with flavor and wrapped my favorite food group….BACON!!

 

Here is what you need:

Chicken breast or tenderloins

Bacon

toothpicks (or spaghetti noodles)

Brown Sugar

Chili Powder

Barbeque Sauce

Pepper Jack Cheese

Trim your chicken. Take a piece of bacon and wrap it around your chicken.  Use toothpicks on each end of the back to hold it in place.  I didn’t have any toothpicks so I used spaghetti noodles  Genius, right?

Sprinkle a little brown sugar and chili powder on your chicken.  Pat it down so it sticks to the chicken.

20140602-161235-58355489.jpg

Toss your chicken on the grill.  Cook for about 8 minutes on each side.

When your chicken is fully cooked, squirt a little barbecue sauce on top and place a piece of cheese on top.  Let cook for about a minute until the cheese melts.

We are starting the month off with some cheesy bacon potatoes. Here is what you need:

Garlic, pressed

OK….so this is the first time I have ever bought canned potatoes. I forgot you could even buy them this way until my mom mentioned them recently. These were surprisingly delicious!

We have 8 people in our house so I used 3 cans. Slice up the potatoes.

Use a 12 inch piece of foil. Place some potatoes in the center of the foil. Sprinkle some cheese and crumbled bacon on top. Then press one clove of clove on top.

Fold up the sides of your foil and roll them down to seal all the seams.

Toss them on the grill or about 8-10 minutes.

These are soooo amazing!  Enjoy! 🙂
