I'm always looking for summer grilling ideas that are out of the box. These watermelon, ham, and cheese kabobs fit the bill completely!

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

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. Skewer all the kabob ingredients and sprinkle them with salt to taste. The cheese is pretty bland without salt to be generous!
  2. Grill on a propane grill at medium high heat for 8 minutes per side or until cooked through
  3. Drizzle with Balsamic Vinaigrette glaze or, better yet, use glaze as a dipping sauce!
  4. 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!
