Friday Recipes: Summer Grilling

It's so hot here, we don't need to turn on a grill to cook mean -- well almost. But it is summertime - the time to crack open the grill and chargrill everything. We're cooking with gas!

So today I thought we'd share our favorite grill tricks.

Here're mine for fantastic burgers:

1) mix a package of onion soup mix (the dry kind from an envelope) into two pounds of hamburger, patty and grill. So much flavor!

2) mix a package of ranch dressing mix (the dry kind) into two pounds of hamburger, patty, and grill. Again, so very yummy.

Both are simple, but I can almost guarantee those gathered around your table will ask for the secret!

So what's one of your tricks for simple grilling?

I'm currently eating leftover shish kabobs that we grilled on Saturday. My husband makes a fantastic marinade, but you can always just use a batch of Italian style salad dressing and some wine (red for beef or lamb, white for chicken, either for pork!). We let the meat chunks soak for a few hours along with cut up fresh pineapple, red bell pepper, onions, and mushrooms. Then we always put our guests to work assembling the skewers.

Another thing to mix in with your hamburger is Hidden Valley Ranch dry mix. Yum! Use as much or as little as you want to flavor the hamburgers.
