From the Grill

All-American Burgers

All-American Burgers Prepare the sauce and burgers ahead of time to make these easy, but tasty burgers.


Cheese-Stuffed Brats Plan to grill at the park? Stuff the brats with cheese and wind the bacon around them. Pack with ice packs in a cooler and you're ready to go.


Grilled Texas-Style Beef Ribs The slightly sweet grilling sauce gives a Texas twist to these back ribs. As usual in the Lone Star State, most of the cooking is done before the sauce is slathered on. Be generous with the slathering, however, and be ready to serve more of the sauce on the side.


Grilled Stuffed Meatloaf The indirect grilling method and a square of heavy foil make easy work of grilling a meat loaf.


Sweet and Spicy BBQ Ribs This curry-spiced sauce makes pork or beef ribs finger-licking tasty.


Other Great Options

Broccoli and Chicken Casserole Swiss cheese adds a rich flavor to the creamy sauce.


Barbecue Beef Sandwiches You can prepare the meat mixture ahead of time and transport it in a crockpot.


Chicken Manicotti with Chive Cream Sauce Broccoli and pimiento add vivid colors to the tasty chicken filling that spills from these pasta shells.


Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Root Beer Barbecue Sauce Root beer adds a slight sweetness to this tasty sauce.


Roast Beef and Red Pepper Sandwiches These are sure to be pleasers when you use your family's favorite deli meat.


Hearty Lasagna Don't be daunted by the prep time. You can roast the tomatoes a day ahead and assemble the lasagne up to 4 hours before dinnertime.
