Grilled Steak Sandwich with Garlic Aioli Recipe

Grilled Steak Sandwich with Garlic Aioli Recipe - a simple and easy meal perfect for tailgating!

It still very much feel like summer here. And that means I do not feel like cooking. So this weekend as we watched a little football we grilled up some steak sandwiches to munch on.  Since I didn’t want just a plain steak sandwich I decided to make a delicious roasted garlic aioli to give the sandwich more flavor.

While the barbecue was heating up to 400 degrees I put some garlic heads in some foil (bottom sliced off) with a good amount of olive oil. I sealed the foil and added it to the barbecue.

The garlic roasted while the steaks cooked and continued cooking while the steaks rested and took about 20 minutes to cook. Everything else went quickly after the garlic was ready. And everything was done on the grill! Well… except the salad. But you can always grill your salad next time.

As I mentioned when I shared my strawberry vanilla overnight oats recipe, my 14 month old has been drinking more and more cow’s milk. And instead of hesitating, I’ve actually been more willing to give her milk because there is no A1 protein in a2 Milk®.

And so far, so good!

We’ve noticed a smooth transition from all breastmilk to breastmilk and cow’s milk and I couldn’t be happier. That means that Grandma is happier too because she can watch Norah longer and during the day.

Keto Friendly Grilling Meals- Hatch Green Chile Chicken Drumsticks

So it’s been a little over a month since I’ve switched over to a low carb high fat lifestyle (LCHF) and I’m starting to get the hang of things. I’m a bit obsessed with experimenting in the kitchen and love to find great meals that I can tweak. One of my favorite recipes to make over and over again is mashed cauliflower. I don’t know why… maybe it’s the heavy whipping cream and butter? Yeah, it’s definitely the heavy whipping cream and butter!

But I can’t just eat mashed cauliflower for dinner. Or serve it to the family. They might riot.

This weekend I was doing my grocery run sans kids (yay!) with coffee in hand (double yay!) and I headed down the marinade and sauces aisle. It’s one of my favorite aisles to peruse for help for dinner. Not only are there plenty of lower carb/sugar options, but they help make tasty meals in little to no time. This time around I found a delicious green chile marinade in Stubbs Anytime Sauces. Paired with the Foster Farms drumsticks I picked up on sale, I was ready for grilling!

One thing I love about grilling, even in November, is that I can prepare just about anything on the grill. What’s not to love about a full meal being cooked outside while I don’t have to dirty up the kitchen? Less dishes in my sink. With the help of some foil, I was able to cook up the asparagus and the cauliflower right on the grill along side the drumsticks as they cooked. 

And? It’s perfect for tailgating meals too. When we head out to watch our team play on the field when they’re here in town we love enjoying a meal on the grill before heading into the stadium. Or when we’re hosting family over to watch the game on TV. Grilling makes it easier for us to host our family and enjoy time with them while they’re visiting with us.

Chili Cheese Crescent Dogs on the Grill

Looking for a fun and easy dinner this summer? Try these Chili Cheese Crescent Dogs on the grill. Not only are they delicious, they’re easy too! 

Chili Cheese Crescent Dogs on the grill

Do you ever have one of those days in the summer where you just don’t want to turn on the oven? Living in SoCal, we have about a month of that. So on those sweltering hot days I turn to the outdoors and our barbecue to get creative with dinner. But I don’t leave all of my kitchen tools in the kitchen! I also bring them to the grill.

This past weekend I busted out the pizza stone and made some delicious chili cheese crescent dogs on the grill. Not only were they quick to put together (I used leftover chili I froze earlier in the month), they took less than 15 minutes to cook on the grill. And? I wasn’t sweating while eating my meal. Now that’s a win!

Stuffed crescent dogs are so easy to make. And even when I’m watching what I eat, I can easily modify them by using fat free beef franks and fat free crescent rolls.

Just make sure you leave a little edge to use while wrapping them up together. And pinch the seams of the crescent dough together really well (or use a rolling pin to roll the dough out flat) so that none of the stuffing comes out.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 2

Ingredients

  • 4 Beef Franks (or Reduced Fat Beef Franks)
  • 1 tube of Crescent Rolls
  • Chili
  • Cheddar Cheese

Instructions

  1. Start up the grill. If using charcoal, make sure to wait until the charcoal is all white/gray. Place a pizza stone on the grill to heat up.
  2. While grill is heating up, roll out crescent dough and break off into four rectangles (each rectangle will be made out of 2 triangles). Press seam together by using your fingers or a rolling pin.
  3. Place a hot dog on each of the rectangles. Top with choice of toppings (about 1 tablespoon of chili and 1 tablespoon of cheese) and seal together by wrapping dough around the hot dog and toppings. Make sure the seams are pinched together.
  4. When grill is at the right temperature (375 if a gas grill, white hot coals if a charcol grill) place stuffed crescent rolls onto the pizza stone. Bake on the grill for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown and the dough is completely cooked.
  5. Remove from the stone and serve. Enjoy!

Easy Dinner Ideas On The Grill

The official end of summer is near and the unofficial end of summer has arrived. While I’m sad to see our summertime fun and memories fade, I’m excited that we’ll still have some warm days upon us to continue using our grill instead of heating up the house inside.

Over this past summer I’ve come to realize that you can grill just about anything. And that includes pizza! Not only is it the perfect way to get a crisp, delicious crust, it evenly cooks all of the toppings so no one is left with a doughy bite.

But pizza isn’t the only thing you can put on the grill… I’ve also started grilling up some desserts and even salad if you can believe it. These easy dinner ideas on the grill are not only simple to make but quick to cook up! This whole meal took less than 15 minutes from start to finish.  [Read more…]

Corn on the Cob with Herb Butter

BBQ corn on the cob with herb butter

Is there an item of food that just screams summer to you? For me it’s corn on the cob. Every year my mouth starts to water as I think of the delicious ears of corn we’ll be eating come summer. And now we’ve taken it a notch higher with this corn on the cob with herb butter.

It’s so easy to just throw some corn husks into a pot, soak them, and then grill them up while grilling our favorite kabobs or steaks. And we don’t even have to bother with plates because the husks provide a great handle as we eat the corn.

The kids share our love of corn on the cob and as soon as they see in the store they start jumping up and down asking if they can put some in the cart.

Here’s the best way we’ve found to make the perfect barbecued corn and the best way to take the flavor up a notch… with herb butter!
