When in doubt, throw it on the BBQ.
I was cleaning out my fridge last week before firing up my grill and I had a bag of haricot vert sitting in there that needed to be consumed before I left town. So I figured since the rest of dinner was happening on the grill, I might as well throw those on too. I used my handy dandy grill pan that we got as a wedding gift and grilled the green beans to perfection. It was magical. And eye opening.
Also, that grill pan, you should probably get one. They are pretty freaking awesome. Just saying. And no one is paying me to say that, I’m just looking out for ya!
Like, remember the first time you ever roasted Brussels Sprouts, and it totally changed your life? This is basically the same thing but on the grill. Things are just better when they have a bit of char on them. Like s’mores. That roasted marshmallow makes things so much better. And pizza. The dough on the grill is basically the best thing you’ve ever had. Or just plain bread on the grill. The moral of the story is that we should all be grilling more. And I’m on a mission to come up with more crazy grilled treats for us before grilling season is over.
I wonder if you could grill bacon? Or would that get all sorts of crazy with the bacon grease dripping into the fire? I’ll report back on that one in a few weeks. Or maybe I won’t. If you don’t hear about it in the next couple of week that means it probably didn’t end well.
In the meantime, we should totally fire up the grill and make Grilled Green Beans and serve them on a nightly basis for the rest of the summer.
