Easy Sliced Grilled Potatoes

I’ve been enjoying my new Mr. Steak grill all Summer long and I’ve been enjoying sharing grill tips and techniques with the people at Mr. Steak online.  They’re always quick to respond on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

This was a grilling technique/tip for potatoes they shared with me so I thought I’d try it out and share it with you.  Give it a watch and see what you think.

What’s your favorite way to grill potatoes?

Easy Grilled Cauliflower

Recently, Fareway, one of my favorite grocery stores had a fantastic deal on cauliflower; only 88 cents.  I originally picked up two heads thinking I’d try mashed cauliflower for the first time.

The plan was to grill up 10 pounds of chicken legs (another great Fareway deal) to have with the mashed cauliflower.   When it came time to grill/cook I didn’t have that much energy so I thought I’d try something different. Something easier.  That’s when I settled on this.

Easy Grilled Cauliflower

As the name implies this really is easy.

Here’s what you’ll need: 

1 head cauliflower, washed with the leaves and stem removed

2-3 tablespoons butter

3/4 cup shredded cheese

Seasoning salt

What you do:

Put down one or two sheets of tin foil.  Rub the butter all over the cauliflower and then sprinkle with seasoning salt.  Rub the cheese all over and then wrap the cauliflower in tin foil.  Grill over medium heat for 40-50 minutes.  You can test the doneness by sticking a knife through the foil.

You can watch the process in this video.  Then check out a few of my comments and thoughts that didn’t make the video.

Additional notes:

Don’t be afraid to go heavy on the seasoning.  I thought I was overdoing in the video but we ended up adding additional seasoning salt at the table.  Turns out there is a lot of cauliflower the seasoning doesn’t touch.

Speaking of seasoning… you could mix it up with some of your favorites.  Garlic, onion salt, dill weed, lemon salt, Italian seasoning… I think these would all taste great.

I used Colby-Jack cheese and it was good but the flavor was so mild it kind of got lost.  Next time I’ll use a stronger flavored cheese.  Parmesan would probably work great.

As far as the effort to outcome ratios… this is one of the easiest, best-tasting recipes/recipe ideas there is.  Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Thanks to my oldest daughter for her awesome camera work making the video above possible.

Have you grilled cauliflower before? What did you think?

What I’m Into Right Now – September 2017

These monthly “What I’m Into” posts are some of my favorites.  It’s a chance for me to reflect on what’s going on in my life and share some of my favorite things.  So… here’s the latest!

What I’m Into Right Now – September 2017

Midland – I’m a big fan of this band.  They’ve got a cool retro 70’s sound that I really like.  Their harmonies remind me a little bit of the Eagles.  Someplace I saw their sound described as “California Country”.  I’d say that’s pretty accurate. Their songs “Drinkin’ Problem” and “Check Cashin’ Country” are 2 of my favorites.

Carhartt Shorts – I’m lucky enough to have a job where I can wear shorts if I want to… and I want to whenever I can.  After all… you can’t see what I’m wearing through your radio.

I recently found the perfect style/fit from Carhartt and have a couple pairs now.  They’re comfortable and look great. I’ll probably be wearing them into October.

Getting Organized – During the Summer we back off from our schedules and routines.  Now that the kids are back in school I’m ready for some structure and organization.

Crockpot Recipes – I’m ready for Fall and have started researching new recipes to try.

Grilling – Whether it’s for steaks, frozen pizza, quesadillas, or turkey burgers… I’m firing up the grill every chance I get.

What are you into right now?
