Mix it up for Memorial Day

When we think of Memorial Day, one of the first things that comes to mind is a smoking hot grill and all the delicious foods that are searing away. But we’re not just talking about hot dogs and hamburgers; did you know you can grill leafy greens, desserts and even cheese? This year, instead of sticking to the classics, we’ll be grilling up some of the wackiest, wildest recipes that are sure to leave an impression– both on the food and on our guests! Did you know you can grill….

 

Coleslaw and even Caesar Salad?

 

Fruit and cheese like Haloumi, watermelon and stone fruit?

 

Forget burgers! You can grill meatballs instead

 

Don’t forget to save room for dessert, like grilled doughnuts or pound cake!

 

Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

Throw a Pizza Party… On the Grill!

Did you know today is Pizza Party Day? Not that we need an excuse to share a pie with some friends on a Friday, but the holiday today gives us an opportunity to embrace two of our favorite things: pizza (obviously) and grilling! How, you ask? Rather than baking your pizza in the oven, try grilling it up for a smoky, fire-roasted flavor that truly can’t be beat.

 

If you want to go all out, you can make your dough from scratch, pick your toppings and hit the grill. Or, you can grab a bag of store-bought pizza dough and go from there. Whether you’re starting from scratch or taking a shortcut, here are some recipe ideas:

 


Double Cheese Pizzas with Fire Roasted Tomaotes

 

Spice Grilled Eggplant, Feta and Spinach Pizzas

 

Hot Sausage and Sweet Pepper Pizzas with Almond Pesto

 

Poblano & Pepper Jack Pizzas with Avocado

 
 

Grill-less or just not in the mood to cook on a Friday? That’s okay, you can still celebrate! Order in a pie from your favorite delivery shop and throw together the easiest spring cocktail ever, Pick-a-Liquor Ginger Cocktail

Technique Tuesday: Throw the Ultimate Tailgate

You know it’s football season when the foam noodles get traded for foam fingers, and sunblock is traded for face paint. Here at Every Day with Rachael Ray, we may not all agree on what team will make it to the Super Bowl, but we do agree on one thing: Come Sunday, tailgating is a must. We’ve gathered the best recipes, cooking and hosting ideas and clean up tips to make your tailgate the best in the parking lot.

 

 

1. Get Your Grill On

Let’s face it, you can’t host a proper tailgate without some grilled goodies. But getting an entire grill over to the stadium may seem like a hassle. In order to ease your grill troubles, pick up one of these affordable, yet sturdy portable grills for your next tailgate.

 

2. Cater to the Crowd

While you’re cooking in a parking lot is not the time to experiment with crazy ingredients or time-consuming recipes. Make 2 to 3 crowd-pleasing finger foods (items that require just one hand!) or items you can eat with a spoon. Don’t forget dessert and drinks! Here are some of our faves:

Bacon Cheese Sliders

Baked Beans with Burnt Ends

 

Cuban Grilled Corn

Fried Chocolate Pudding Hand Pies

Beer Margaritas

3. Be the Host(ess) with the Most(est)

Tailgating can start pretty early in the a.m., so make sure you bring activities to keep people awake and energetic. As a true ode to fall sports, we love this Striped Corn Hole set. You can even get it custom made with your team’s colors!

4. Make Clean-Up a Breeze

Don’t spend the entire tailgate (or game) worrying about the clean-up. Bring plenty of garbage bags, hand sanitizer and cooking utensils that can be easily stored until they make it home. This five-piece barbeque set comes with a carrying case, so you won’t have to worry about stains.

At the end of the day, it’s about being with friends and family and enjoying the big game. Everything else will fall into place!

A Meatless Labor Day

Happy Labor Day! An end-of-summer celebration means lots of time by the grill, and what better way to include your vegetarian guests than by grilling something so savory and delicious, no one will miss the meat? Here’s your life-saver: The Big, Beefy Mushroom Cheddar Melt. Although this dish has the word “beef” in its name, the only meatiness you’ll find is from the flavor-packed Portobello mushrooms.
