Game Day Grilling 2018

Our philosophy when it comes to the big game is to take it easy and keep it simple. For us game time grilling is out of the question and halftime is too!  Nobody wants to be at the grill unless a TV is nearby.  Pre-game grilling is where it’s at for this big game day. An early evening kickoff makes an afternoon appetizer party a great way to nosh, nibble and ‘pre-game’ before kick-off. Try and plan your menu so that all of the work can be done ahead of time and all you have to do is fire up the grill!

1. Hit the Freezer Section at the Supermarket:

Grilling appetizers is fun, fast, and an easy way to mix it up with a variety of offerings. With so many tasty prepackaged finger foods at the grocery store you are sure to find something for everyone! Just think of the fun serving grilled cheese sticks, pot-stickers, ravioli, quesadillas, and more to your appreciative guests!

Here are three basic ideas to make your Super Bowl grilling a fun and easy game day party. All of these items should be grilled at a medium temperature of about 400f at the GrillGrate surface.

 

 

Cheese Sticks and Bread Sticks make easy appetizers right from the freezer to the grill.  Medium to low heat- you’ll know when they’re done.

Large Ravioli, fresh (we love Costco for these) or frozen is another easy finger-food appetizer.  Coat lightly in olive oil, grill at 400F.  Add a simple dipping sauce such as marinara or vodka sauce.  Raviolis crisp and puff-up when grilled at medium heat.

Potstickers are easy to grill with GrillGrates.  Frozen or not with little coat of oil to the grill at medium heat.  Postickers usually come with their own sauces another time saver.

2. Grill Cheese Quesadillas and Hit the Refrigerator for Salsas & Toppings:

 

Quesadillas on the grill are a nice platform to put salsas, sour cream, guacamole etc. 

  • Two flour tortillas with a cheese mix in the center is a 5 minute grill at 400F.
  • Lightly coat with olive oil- a mister is real handy for applying the oil.
  • A couple of turns for nice grill marks and stiffness.
  • Add toppings on or off the grill.

I make a plate of cut slices for people to build their own toppings.  Grill peppers, brats and other goodies for toppings if you are looking for extended grill time.  OR- raid the refrigerator and clean out your sauces, greens and sour cream!

 

3. Prep these items ahead of time and really WOW your guests:
