Summer may be considered the “official” BBQ season, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop firing up the grill when the calendar claims it’s Fall. From squash skewers to cinnamon peaches, fruits and veggies taste better and retain more nutrients when cooked on the grill. And let’s face it: it’s much more pleasant to dine al fresco on your patio or balcony in the crisp, Autumn air anyway. Here are a few of our favorite recipes that feature fresh ingredients and warm spices to extend the grilling season well into Fall.
Add a rich, caramelized flavor to chicken breasts with a bourbon and brown sugar marinade. Although the recipe is for chicken, it also tastes delicious on beef and pork. Whatever type of meat you prefer, gorgeous grill marks make it look as good as it tastes.
Grilled squash tastes amazing when it’s skewered and grilled with nothing more than some olive oil, salt and pepper. When you’re looking for a more sophisticated side dish to serve at a fall BBQ, however, this recipe with a shallot vinaigrette fits the bill perfectly.
Enhance the sweet, juicy flavor of a freshly picked peach with this versatile recipe. Serve it as a side dish with poultry or pork, or pair it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to finish off the evening. You can also eat grilled peaches for breakfast with your favorite brand of Greek yogurt. The possibilities with peaches are endless.
Warm up from the inside out with this delicious pork and poblano combination that includes radishes. Many people don’t realize that radishes aren’t just a spring crop, but can also be harvested in the autumn. You’ll feel full and satisfied at the end of this meal packed with protein and spices.
