Transitioning Into Fall with the Grill

Posted by   + Show Post

Fall is around the corner, but the heat is definitely still upon us. This lends to more nights cooking outdoors. And who wouldn't want to continue with warm evenings cooking under the stars? But how can we start to get a taste of fall, when it still feels like summer? Easy! Try fall favorites on the grill.

I just finished a meal of grilled rosemary turkey cutlets and grilled butternut squash.

For the squash, I cleaned and quartered it, making sure to season well with salt and pepper. Before placing on the grill I made sure it had a large dose of olive oil and wrapped the whole thing in tinfoil. Then, I let the steam go to work. I made sure to start the squash before the cutlets. Time management is important - even in grilling.

Dinner was a hit. But the leftovers were definitely the talk of the town. I made great paninis with a squash and red pepper relish.

What other fall meals would you cook outdoors?

Quoting eustacejessica:

That sounds great! Once fall comes around I don't cook on the grill as much.

Neither do I.

Grill is fine anytime of the year!

We do the same kind of food we always eat on the grill

Sounds yummy!  I have never really changed my grilling based on season.

If I use the grill I grill the same thing all year round

 We cook on the grill more in fall than summer, when it's just too hot.

We don't grill necessarily "fall" stuff but the regular stuff like steaks,  hotdogs and hamburgers.
