Polish Sausage anyone? Here is an excellent grilling recipe.

Grilled Polish Sausage Recipe

We recommend jarred fresh sauerkraut (like Bubbies), which you can find in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. If you don't have a grill, or this isn't grilling season, you can also put all ingredients into a casserole dish and bake in a 350F oven for 1 1/2 hours.

INGREDIENTS
2-3 pounds kielbasa, Polish sausage or bratwurst
1 to 2 light-colored (not dark) beers
1 to 1 1/2 pints of sauerkraut
2 medium yellow onions, thickly sliced
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 Tbsp. caraway seed
Mustard

METHOD
1. Grill the sausages slowly over medium heat, allowing them to get well browned. Be patient; do not be tempted to grill the links over high heat, or they will break open and the juices and fat will drain into the grill (they may break open anyway, but they'll break less if you cook them slowly).

2. While the sausages are cooking, put an aluminum grilling pan on a cooler part of the grill and pour in the beer. Stir in the celery and caraway seeds and salt. Bring to a simmer. (This may require covering the grill.) Once the sausages are browned add the sausages, the sauerkraut and sauerkraut juices to the pan.

3. Grill the onions. Paint the sliced onion with the vegetable oil and grill on high direct heat. If your grates are too wide and you think you will lose too much onion through the grates, you can either skip the grilling part and put the onions directly into the beer bath, or you can cut the onions in halves or quarters and grill them that way. Then slice them and add them to the beer.

4. Cover the grill and simmer (a low simmer, not a boil) for 30 minutes to 2 hours before serving.

Serve as is in a bowl or on a plate, or in a sandwich roll. Serve with mustard on the side.

Serves 8

7 Points Plus per serving (excluding bun).

I LOVE to grill my veggies on foil. You can do a mix of whatever you like. I like to keep the basics cauliflower, broccoli, and snow peas, And then depending on what is on sale you can add carrots, zucchini, summer squash, brussle sprouts. I usually don't like the last 2-3 but if I add them to the others I don't mind it. I usually add a little olive oil, low sodium season salt, and no salt garlic herb blend. spray foil with olive oil cooking spray and cook veggies till tender. you can also add kielbasa slices with the veggies.
I also do the same seasonings with potato's and mix with a sweet potato pieces.

Grill sweet corn in the husks. (if fresh soak in water for over an hour) I tend to freeze my corn in the husk in vacuum sealed bags, then when want to eat, just thaw for the day, and then they have enough moisture in the husks to just put on grill.

We're grilling this on Sunday. It's one of our favorite recipes. I marinade it overnight.

Grilled London Broil

Recipe By: Cheflambo Home Cooking

Marinade:

c lemon juice
1/3 c soy sauce (lite is fine)
c Worcestershire sauce
1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
1/3 c balsamic vinegar
1 T dry mustard
1T dried parsley
2-3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
2 T fresh ginger, minced

A good marinade will tenderize a London broil nicely. Mix all ingredients and marinade it overnight.

Always grill your London broil rare, allow it to rest at least 15 minutes, and slice across the grain. Keeping it on the rare side allows leftovers to be reheated without making them dry and tough.

I like the kabob idea, can get the meats I crave and veggies. Nothing better than grilled pineapple too. Keep the ideas coming. Some ideas I've been bouncing around:

Sides - Cole slaw
home made baked beans
bean salad

Also keep in mind...for you fat haters out there, grilling meat is a good way for some fat to drip off! And for you fat lovers out there (like me) grill meat....and eat it. Then grill some veggies, too for your fiber and vitamins! There is no need to get fancy.
