Weekly Tip: Double Duty Grilling

When you are grilling- whether its burgers, steaks or chicken- consider what else you might be able to cook while you have the grill lit. More than likely, you will only be using about 1/2 of the space on your grill to cook for one meal. Why not use that extra space to save yourself time later in the week?

For example, if you are grilling steaks on a Saturday night, throw some chicken for chicken salad, chicken wraps or fajitas on the other side of the grill and for about the same amount of gas or charcoal, you'll have the meat for two meals!
Other great things to cook on the side include: thick-sliced potatoes, tomato halves, veggie kabobs, meat or veggies in a foil packet.

Thank you so much for responding! Unfortunately, I didn't realize I would need to moderate my comments so I didn't see your comment until this morning. I posted on my blog the recipe I used. I'll definitely try yours next time! :) I love the title of your blog, by the way. :)

Smart Idea! I like hot dogs off the grill--but I don't like starting up the barbecue just to have one or two. I always grill the whole package. Then, when you heat them up another day, they have that grilled flavor without using up more propane. (I actually prefer charcoal-grilled but don't have the ambition, LOL!)

This is a great idea. I don't know why I never thought of that since I do this with the oven.

Well, Thanks for sharing.
