Wise Bread Reloaded: Late Summer Grilling

By Lars Peterson on 16 August 2014 2 comments

In some parts of the country, the apple harvest is already underway, and a summer that seemed so endless when it began is already closing in on another fall.

But there are still a few more weekends of grilling season left. If you've grown weary of the usual backyard BBQ fare, consider some of the recipes, ingredients, and grill techniques we've collected below in this week's edition of Reloaded.

Great Vegan Grill Recipes — Mikey Rox offers up six delicious vegan grill dishes, including a precious grilled peach dessert.

This Is How You Grill Pizza at Home — It sounds crazy, but a grill really is a great way to prepare pizza, primarily because you can raise the temperature to 700 degrees or more, almost as hot as a wood-fired pizza oven. Ashley Marcin's method puts dough right on grill, but a pizza stone works too.

15 Delicious New Ways to Top a Burger — If you are determined to go with the classic burger, mix it up with one (or several) of Marla Walter's fun burger toppings. She also offers recipes for several non-beef burgers, including turkey, salmon, black bean, and crab.

15 Chicken Leg and Thigh Recipes From Around the World — The recipe for Korean BBQ chicken thighs Camilla Cheung included in her collection of leg and thigh recipes is why we've included the post here, but you'll find 14 other great recipes for dark meat after the click, too.

10 Cheap and Delicious Marinades — All of these marinades are suitable for the usual grill proteins (the ones that come from animals), but they'll do well on vegetarian and vegan vehicles such as tofu and tempeh, too.

15 Fun, Cheap Things to Do Before Summer Is Gone — When you're done grilling and eating, Jennifer Holder offers a double handful of fun, frugal things to do before school and bad weather return.

This Year's Record Breaking Apple Harvest

The Wall Street Journal tells us that this year apple harvest in Washington state will be record breaking. Just don't expect too much downward pressure on prices. That's because Washington grows varieties such as Gala and Honey Crisp that other apple growing regions do not. Nevertheless, what should we do with the bounty?

Grill 'em, of course — sliced and dusted with cinnamon and sugar, or whole and stuffed with chocolate and marshmallows.

I was happily reading this article, not too surprised by anything that was written but still looking to be inspired to grill late in the season. (Note: nobody grills like South Africans... if you don't know what a braai is, you really should look it up and give it a try.) But what got me, was the ending. Do WHAT with apples?!?!? YES! I am going to do all of those things and one more! Inspiration has finally arrived. How about, cutting off the top of an apple, scooping out the majority of the insides, leaving a hard shell, dipping the shell in melted chocolate, and placed upside down on wax paper to dry... then either roasting or boiling the apples until they're very nearly apple sauce, sprinkling with cinnamon... put a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream in the bottom of the shell, and top with the apple mash. That sounds good! :D
