      appetizers: make these and cut smaller
      pizza on the grill
      pizza dough (homemade or purchased)

      about 1/2 cup olive oil for brushing or drizzling

      2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
      2 cups shredded mozzarella or fontina cheese
      1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
      1 jar Ragu Pizza Quick Sauce
      Fresh Basil for garnish

      Note: Ragu Pizza Quick Crust Mix may be used in this recipe following package
      directions to prepare the pizza dough.

      Preheat grill. Divide pizza dough into 4 equal pieces. On a large oiled
      baking sheet, flatten 1 piece of dough into a 10-12 inch free-foam round, about
      inch thick.

      Make sure thickness of dough is even. Place dough on grill rack 3
      to 4 inches from heat. The dough will puff slightly and grill marks will

      Flip the crust over using tongs. Brush the dough with olive oil.
      one-quarter of the cheeses over the crust. Lightly top cheeses with Ragu Pizza
      Quick Sauce. Drizzle the pizza lightly with olive oil.

      Using tongs, rotate
      the pizza frequently for even browning. Pizza is done when the top is bubbly and
      cheese is melted, about 6-8 minutes. Sprinkle with torn basil leaves before

      Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 4 individual pizzas.

      Make sure your grate is clean and lightly oiled.

      make kabobs – have the people make up their own combos .. soak wood skewers
      in warm water for an hour before cooking .. precut squash & marinade put in
      bowls, pre start all kabobs with some squash the food doesn’t fall off as easy

      turkey ham, pineapple, gr pepper kabob – good with an apricot or peach glaze
      (use jam, little sugar, touch of vinegar – nuke and then thicken to right

      chicken kabobs with various rubs/marinades (below)

      meat balls – use the sal hamburgers .. add breadcrumbs, egg etc etc ..
      precook slightly in oven on cookie sheet .. squewer with veggies and marinade

      grilled chicken & veg salad
      8 small yellow squash, halved lengthwise
      4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound total)
      4 small zucchini, halved lengthwise
      2 large red, yellow, and/or green sweet peppers, cut into 1-inch-wide strips

      2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
      6 white, green, or purple salad savoy leaves, curly endive leaves, and/or
      Chinese cabbage leaves

      1. Cook the squash, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 3
      minutes. Set aside.

      Grill chicken on an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot
      coals for 15 to 18 minutes or until tender and no longer pink; turn chicken
      halfway through grilling time.
      2. Meanwhile, generously brush the squash, zucchini, and sweet pepper strips
      with melted margarine or butter to prevent vegetables from sticking to grill
      rack. Lay vegetables on grill rack perpendicular to the bars so they don’t fall
      into coals.

      Cook vegetables on grill with the chicken until tender and
      slightly charred, turning occasionally (about 10 minutes for squash, 8 to 10
      for peppers, 5 to 6 minutes for zucchini).

      another thing i make often with a little variation is scalloped potatoes.
      make a basic scalloped potato recipe and add 1 cup choppped ham. Very filling

      such as mushrooms, peas, corn etc.

      Our favorite is scalloped potatoes with ham, mushrooms and cheese.
