Emeril’s Ka-bam Kabobs http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/ka-bam-kabobs-recipe/index.html, our absolute favorite. I use beef stew meat instead of sirloin and chicken breast also. If you use chicken dont let it marinate too long or it will over power the meat.

I love this sandwich recipe because it’s so flexible. I buy whatever bread, veggies (squash, eggplant?), and cheese (jack, feta?) are on sale. It’s good every time and we never miss the meat! Serve with a fruit salad- YUM!

GRILLED VEGGIE SANDWICHES
Ingredients
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 cup olive oil
1 cup sliced red, orange, or yellow bell peppers
1 small zucchini, sliced
1 red or sweet onion, sliced
1 small yellow squash, sliced
4 (4-x6-inch) focaccia bread pieces, split horizontally
4 slices havarti cheese

Directions
In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Set aside in the refrigerator.
Preheat the grill for high heat.
Brush vegetables with olive oil on each side. Brush grate with oil. Place bell peppers and zucchini closest to the middle of the grill, and set onion and squash pieces around them. Cook for about 3 minutes, turn, and cook for another 3 minutes. The peppers may take a bit longer. Remove from grill, and set aside.
Spread some of the mayonnaise mixture on one side of the bread, and top the other side with havarti cheese. Place on the grill cheese side up, and cover with lid for 2 to 3 minutes. This will warm the bread, and slightly melt the cheese. Watch carefully so the bottoms don’t burn. Remove from grill, and layer with the vegetables.

I try to do just about all my cooking on the grill in the summer – it saves on air conditioning a hot kitchen and gives the food such a wonderful flavor. One thing we really love is homemade pizza on the grill. I make up some pizza dough, lightly grill it and then everyone gets to put their favorite toppings on, then a few more minutes in the grill to finish it off. Yum. :) My mother-in-law also taught me how to cook potatoes on the grill – cut up potatoes, and wrap in individual packets of aluminum foil, with a tablespoon or two of butter. You can cook almost any veggie this way.
I’m looking forward to trying the recipes you’ve shared here – thank you!

Great grilling tips. Here’s a grill recipe I found that involves steak, bacon, and corn. Does it get more summery?
