Time to try something new! I bought this little beauty right after Halloween because I liked the way it looked and thought it would be a nice fall decoration. Then, as it sat there, I thought… wonder what it would taste like. (reverting back to my 2 yr old self) So, last night I grilled it and it was great!
Along with 2 grilled chicken breasts on the grill, I made the whole dinner out on the lanaii on the hubby’s awesome grill. Time to completion was 50 minutes for the meal.
Sweet Dumpling Squash
- 1 Sweet Dumpling Squash
- 2 Tbsp of butter (you can use olive oil, but I was feeling indulgent)
- Cut a hole in the top of the squash and with a spoon & your hand clear out all the “squash goop” and seeds. (Just like a pumpkin)
- Drop the butter down in there.
- Preheat the grill, I used 2/3 burners lit in our gas grill
- Put the squash in the grill, but NOT over the lit burners. (I actually placed it on the top shelf of the grill so it could bake)
- Check it periodically. I cooked ours for 50 minutes and it was great. (Not to squishy, yet not hard and chewy)
- Remove from the grill, snap your quick photo with your smartPhone, and serve.
- I just took a sharp knife and cut the back side out, then scooped the squash out with a spoon to serve.
I am looking forward to trying this again with olive oil and some seasoning.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
- 6-7 Large, Fresh, Brussel Sprouts
- 1 Tbsp of olive or grapeseed oil.
- Wash your brussel sprouts and remove a few outside leaves.
- Cut the end off the sprouts and quarter them.
- Drizzle the oil on a large piece of aluminum foil or an iron skillet (one with a lid)
- Drop your quartered sprouts into the cooking vessel. (If foil, wrap it up and roll the edges to seal it up.)
- Place on the grill fro 15-20 minutes.
- Serve ‘em up and enjoy!
Hope you enjoy these two fall favorites. Let me know how yours come out!
What a great way to add an extra veggie you your meal and not mess up the kitchen!
