Grilling season is upon us and, in my house, we’re all about finding wonder, tasty, unusual summer grilling ideas to throw on the BBQ. Grilling is a hobby of Nate’s. For a (far too long) while, Nate had FIVE grills sitting around in our backyard. With a little bit of nagging, he’s down to just three grills – a smoker, a charcoal grill, and a propane grill. Oh, and he also has a pizza oven… At least I get good food out his collection!
I love that during the summertime I don’t have to cook a ton. Nate takes it upon himself to be the grill master and does so many of our meals that way. We grill pretty much everything – the normal things like burgers and hot dogs – but also pizza, fruit, veggies, and even cheese!
Sidenote: Were you aware that there are some types of cheese that can be grilled? I thought I had heard that there were certain cheese that didn’t melt and when I was shopping at Fred Meyer and saw their amazing cheese section, I asked the person working there about it. She said there were a few different options and, when I let her know the unique recipe I wanted to try out, she pointed me in the direction of paneer cheese. Sure enough, it doesn’t melt over the heat and was the perfect addition to the kabobs! #magicalcheese
Watermelon, Ham, and Cheese Kabobs
Watermelon Cut in 1 Inch Chunks (Approximately 3 Per Kabob)
Sliced Ham (Approximately 2 Per Kabob)
Paneer Cheese Cut in 1 Inch Chunks (Approximately 2 Per Kabob)
Tomato Chunks Cut in 1 Inch Slices (Approximately 2 Per Kabob)
Salt to Taste
Optional: Balsamic Vinaigrette Glaze for Dipping
- Skewer all the kabob ingredients and sprinkle them with salt to taste. The cheese is pretty bland without salt to be generous!
- Grill on a propane grill at medium high heat for 8 minutes per side or until cooked through
- Drizzle with Balsamic Vinaigrette glaze or, better yet, use glaze as a dipping sauce!
- Enjoy… And don’t worry about getting messy!
While, obviously, having a good grill (or three) is super important, one of my most needed BBQ items is definitely a package of wet wipes! Is anyone like me in that they get the juice of everything all over everywhere? I make a bigger mess than my three year old! My current go-to for cleaning up BBQ messes are the Kleenex® wet wipes. They’re perfect for adults because they’re thick and soft and take care of all the messes adults want to pretend never happened. I can get all the juices off my hands and face and pretend like they never happened. I picked mine up in the facial tissue aisle at Fred Meyer when I was finding out about the magical cheese!
While I love Kleenex wet wipes, Nate’s not such a delicate slob and prefers VIVA® paper towels. He loves that he can do all the grilling and VIVA® towels can handle any mess he throws at them. Their cloth-likeness is fantastic and BBQ messes are no match for them!
