Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Grilled Sweet Potatoes


Here is another one where you don’t have to turn on the oven. It’s still grilling season so why not get all you can get out of it before the weather turns on us.

My daughter prepared these sweet potatoes and I grilled them for a great side dish for the evening. Apparently sweet potatoes are one of the healthiest foods that you can eat, Loaded with vitamin “A”. I’m not any kind of expert on the health benefits of sweet potatoes I just know that I do enjoy them.

What you need:

2 or 3 sweet potatoes
Olive oil
Cinnamon
Nutmeg
Sugar (optional)

How to do this:

  • Peel and slice the sweet potatoes ¼” or ½ thick
  • Brush both sides lightly with olive oil
  • Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over one side
  • Sugar is optional; you can add some if you like. We did not use sugar

I set the grill on the medium setting, and grilled on each side for about 2 minutes. Then I moved them to the upper rack of the grill, closed the lid and cooked until the sweet potatoes were tender. I would say about 15 minutes.

Grilled Italian Sausage Sandwiches

Italian Sausage Sandwiches
The other night my wife and my daughter took a trip out of town, and I knew they were going to have a late lunch. That left me wondering what I was going to have for dinner when I got home from work.

I had two Italian sausage links in the freezer; I took them out so they would be ready when I got home. I decided to fire up the grill for my sausage links, I set the grill to medium heat.

While the links were grilling I sliced up some red and green bell peppers, along with some onions and then just for some extra flavor I added some diced up garlic.

I simmered these in my cast iron skillet covered, on medium heat on the stove. My wife picked up a couple of sausage rolls for me before she left so I was all set for my Italian sausage sandwiches.

These are the kind of sausage sandwiches you love to buy when you go to the county fairs. There is always a vendor selling delicious sausage with peppers and onions. So just in case you missed the county fair with that favorite vendor, you can give this a try. These were quick and easy to make and Oh so good.

What you need:
2 Italian sausage links
½ of each red and green bell pepper sliced in strips
½ onions sliced
1 clove of garlic diced
2 nice sausage rolls

Crock Pot Country Ribs

Yum
Country ribs with rice and veggies


My wife picked up a package of country ribs the other day, and I had all intentions of cooking these on the grill.

When I got home from work the house was filled with the smell of those country ribs cooking all day in the Slow Cooker. She decided to make them a Crock pot meal, and I’m so glad she did.

No real recipe here just put your ribs in the slow cooker add a couple of bottles of your favorite barbecue sauce and set it to the low setting. These cooked for about four hours on the low setting and they were fall off the bone delicious.

Served with sautéed vegetables and rice this made a nice meal for the both of us. The vegetables were simple, cut green and yellow peppers into slices, slice up an onion, and then add some spinach.

Drizzle olive oil into a 10” pan then add the cut up vegetables and sauté over medium heat until the veggies are tender. This turned out to be a great side dish to go along with these country ribs.

As always Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed :)
