Grilled Stuffed Zucchini

Grilled Stuffed Zucchini

Grilled Stuffed Zucchini makes an excellent side dish. Pair this healthy vegetable with thick and juicy pork chops, tender grilled chicken or just about anything else you can toss over an open flame. It’s hearty enough to forgo the meats all together and can even […]

Gourmet Pizza on the Grill

Pizza night gets a whole new meaning at our house during the summer. Put down that take out menu and fire up the grill! You don’t need a fancy pizza stone or even a pizza oven to create your very own outdoor pizzeria. There’s nothing […]

Steak Sub on a Stick

Steak Sub on a Stick

Ok so if you’ve been reading my blog and getting to know me, then you know by now that I love me some easy, no clean up grilling recipes in the summertime! And yes, we are THAT family that grills in the snow too, but grilling is just so much better when it’s hot out and the sun is shining! (stating the obvious, right?!?) So it should come as no surprise that this is one of my favorite grilling recipes. The flavors are so simple, but compliment each other in the best ways imaginable! Not to mention, this recipe is portable, on a stick, take me anywhere kind of eating. Like play corn hole with one hand and eat a steak sub on a stick with the other. Yep, the fun doesn’t have to stop just cause it’s dinnertime! Well, I got winner….cause I’m going in double fisted on the kebabs!

Here’s all you’ll need: Steak, ciabatta bread, red peppers, onion, steak seasoning, and provolone cheese (not pictured).


Soak wood skewers in water for an hour (or more). This will keep the wood from catching fire and burning up on the grill. Safety first!

Cut ciabatta bread into 1 inch chunks. Instead of grabbing a whole loaf of ciabatta, we used these ciabatta rolls from Sam’s Club. Either will work!

Chop the red peppers into 1 inch chunks. I can’t decide which is my favorite part to these shish kebabs!


And we’re going to do the same with the onion. Nice, hearty, one inch pieces!


And last but not least, don’t forget about that steak! We’re going to slice and dice the meat into bite size pieces. You’ll also want to season it with your favorite steak seasoning. We used McCormick’s Montreal Steak. Yummy!!!


Now we’re going to thread all of these goodies onto our wood skewer! We start with the steak, and then we add the onion, followed by the ciabatta bread and red pepper. All the components to mouth watering steak sub!


Then just keep repeating the pattern until the skewer is full. Steak, onion, ciabatta bread, red pepper, repeat!

Continue until all of the sticks are full! These kebabs are full of color but we are about to make them even better!!


Slice each piece of provolone cheese into 4 strips. You’re going to want to have the cheese ready in advance. The kebabs don’t take very long on the grill!


Place steak skewers on a grill over medium heat. Grill uncovered, for 5-8 minutes or until steak pieces are cooked through. Rotate the skewers to get an even cook.


And now it’s time to lay on the goodness!! Once the steak is cooked through, place two cheese slices on each kebab to cover. Grill for an additional 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Remove from the grill and serve warm! How fabulous are these portable steak subs?!?

Melty, cheesy, goodness!! Come to me!! You can push everything off of the kebab and onto your plate or just eat it right off the stick! We are an eat it off the stick kind of family.

Even this guy was willing to sit just for the mere chance to get a bite of the kebabs. Look how cute and well behaved he looks!! He definitely has his moments. Ok, I’ve decided!! Maybe my favorite part of these shish kebabs is the dachshund on the end!! What do you mean they don’t all come that way???

We LOVE to cook outside in the summertime!! No need to heat up the kitchen when we have a grill, a smoker (we’re on our second one because the first got so much use), and the Big Easy on hand. So when I came across […]

Family Favorite Bacon Cheeseburgers

Family Favorite Bacon Cheeseburgers

Grilling season is officially here! We busted out this outstanding burger recipe for the first time this year for Memorial Day. It’s pretty much our go to any time we’re cooking burgers. Flavorful, juicy, and a cinch to whip up. Can a burger recipe be any more perfect than that? So needless to say, when we found this recipe, it quickly became a family favorite. And because it’s so simple to make, we were able to paint our patio, do some landscaping, AND build a picnic table on Memorial Day and still have a lovely picnic dinner! I know! We love to take on a project or two, or seven! Check out our fabulous new picnic table. My husband is pretty much a super hero!!

Here’s all you’ll need: Diced onions, ketchup, minced garlic, sugar, worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, cider vinegar, ground beef, cheese, bacon, buns and toppings of your choice.

Finely chop the onions.

Combine the first onions, ketchup, garlic, sugar, worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, code vinegar, and ground beef in a large bowl.

Mix well by hand.

Shape meat mixture into 4 equal sized balls.

Press each meat ball into a pattie.

I made these ahead of time so I used freezer paper to separate them until we were ready to grill.

Grill burgers over medium heat, 4-7 minutes per side or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees and juices run clear. We used 90% lean ground beef to avoid shrinkage.

Top with cheese. Grill 1 minute longer until cheese is melted. Serve on buns with bacon and toppings of your choice! I went for the classic and topped with mayo, lettuce, tomato, bacon, and cheese. SOOOO GOOD!!! The rolls are from Costanzo’s Bakery. They are pretty much a staple here in Buffalo, NY. They sell them in the local supermarkets but nothing beats them fresh from the bakery!

Mmm!!! Doesn’t that look amazing?!? I love the little chunks of onion throughout the burger. So flavorful and delicious! Burger perfection! We hope you make this your go to burger recipe too! Summer is officially here!!
