Unique & Delicious Grill Recipes

One of my favorite ways to cook dinner is on the grill and that is not just because my husband usually does all of the work either. I love foods like hot dogs and hamburgers but I have decided before the grilling season is over we are going to try as many unique recipes cooked on the grill that we can.

It’s not that the classics aren’t delicious, they are still my favorites, it just seems like there is so many recipes to try that I want to switch things up a bit and try something new.

Did you know that you could cook Calzones on the Grill? I love this recipe and if it weren’t for the adventurous side of me, I would have never tried this delicious yet unique recipe. I am so glad I did and I suggest you whip these up at your next cookout, you will not be disappointed.

When looking for more unique and delicious recipes to cook on the grill, I came across a lot of yummy recipes that are on my list to try this season, like this Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Burger and these Grilled Ginger Cauliflower Steaks With Tahini Sauce.

I know that potatoes usually fall under the category of classic side dishes but when you make them on the grill it brings out a whole new flavor. These Foil Packet Potatoes will keep things interesting while satisfying that potato craving.

I have had Yuca plants in my yard and never knew that they were edible until I stumbled upon this Grilled Yuca with Garlic Mojo Sauce recipe. Now I have to grab some of these from my garden and pop them on the grill.

Another classic with a nice grilled twist is this Grilled Corn with Pear Chorizo Salad, lots of familiar ingredients perfectly combined with a new fun kick!

This recipe for my Lemon Soaked BBQ Pork Chops is still one of the most pinned recipes on my site, so I have to include it although it may not be as exotic as the rest, it sure brings a nice new flavor to pork that you don’t typically expect.
Grilled Flank Steak Pinwheels look and sound like a fun dish to try and who doesn’t love a good steak?

Whether you are an adventurous eater or you have a vegan coming to your cookout, this  Balsamic Grilled Tofu may be worth a try.
While vacationing in Colorado we noticed how popular trout is there and it made me want to include it in my diet more. This Whole Grilled Trout recipe seems like the perfect way to start!

Kabobs are another classic grill food but when you add in a little Hawaiian flavor you get a whole new dish to try out. These Hawaiian Steak Kabobs are a delightful take on the classic grilled dish.

I have personally never had swordfish so I am excited to try out this Citrus Marinade Grilled Swordfish  dish when I am feeling especially adventurous.

I love the idea of grilling vegetables and these Grilled Eggplant Banh Mi Sliders seem like the perfect way to do it!

French Bread Pizza on the Grill

Last but not least, my French Bread Pizza on the Grill is another fun way to create unique recipes for the grill while enjoying a classic that everyone will love.

Have you been enjoying grilling season and cooking out whenever possible? What is your favorite recipe to make on the grill?

I have tried eating Yuca before and they are really starchy with a slightly sweet flavor. They were boiled and served sprinkled with muscovado (raw) sugar. I think I will try to see if I can find some at the store and grill them just like the way you did. I would also love to try the grilled tofu. Another new favorite for me!

Those BBQ pork chops look so good! I always love trying new recipes and in summer grill recipes are great as we constantly have people coming over so it is great to be able to serve something new. We got a new grill last year and it has not disappointed. These are all great , I would have not thought to make Calzones on a grill.

So timely for our household. My husband bought himself a new grill for Father's Day and has honestly been cooking for us all summer. It's been heaven. I'll have to add to his list a few of these as well. The Hawaiian Steak Kabobs and Grilled Eggplant Banh Mi Sliders look amazing! Thanks so much for a great reipe round-up. xx

Yum! Your lemon soaked bbq pork chops look like a dish served in a restaurant. It's great comfort food that's ideal for the family to share. It's tasty and has a nice flavor of smoke. I'd like to pair it with wine for something special.
