In Boulder, Colorado, Becky Gillespie completes a grilled meal with this light, refreshing dessert. "By the time we're done eating, the coals have cooled to the right temperature," she notes. "I brush the slices of pineapple and pound cake with a sweet sauce, toast them on the grill and top 'em with ice cream and convenient caramel sauce."
"I really enjoy making these special burgers with a surprise inside," writes Ann Couch of Halifax, North Carolina. The homemade sauce, with brown sugar, mustard and ketchup, makes these tropical grilled sandwiches even better.
From Marysville, Washington, Karen Hamlin shares this tasty treatment for beef that relies on a made-in-moments marinade. "I like to add mushrooms to the skewers and serve the yummy kabobs over hot cooked rice," she writes.
In Baraboo, Wisconsin, Nancy Thome threads marinated swordfish, fresh pineapple and green pepper onto skewers for a grilled sensation. The kabobs offer a hint of citrus flavor that's uniquely complemented by cayenne pepper, chili powder and crushed red pepper flakes.
Jessie Heying likes to serve this to guests at her Mitchell, South Dakota home. “This is a special recipe that's fun to cook when we have people over to join us for a meal. It always receives rave reviews. And it is mouthwatering!”
These hearty, meat-and-potato skewers have a little something to please everyone, from pineapple to pork. I cook these kabobs even in winter; I just shovel a path to the grill. —Dione Steffens, Dimmitt, Texas
