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?

Grilled Quesadillas

A lot of times when I fire up my Mr. Steak 3 Burner Gas Grill I like to grill once and eat twice.  That was the case today.  I knew I wanted to grill some chicken breasts to eat in pasta salads for supper.. and I also needed to make lunch.

That led to trying to make something for the first time on the grill; quesadillas.  I love quesadillas because they’re inexpensive and filling.  Turns out grilling quesadillas works great!

I noticed two big pluses to grilling quesadillas as opposed to making them on the stove top.  First, the grill adds some great flavor and makes the tortilla extra crispy. I grilled ours on low and they turned out great.

Second, you can make a lot more at once.  On the stove, you can only make two at a time in one pan.  On the grill, I’m betting I could do six to eight at a time.

We’ll definitely be grilling quesadillas again.  My tuna melt quesadillas would be great on the grill.  Might have to make them soon!

Here’s a quick video I made putting together my quesadilla.

What’s something unique that you grill?
