10 Super Bowl Grill Recipes

By

Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner and I’ve already got my menu planned and tongs in hand. This year I’m foregoing pizza delivery and heading towards my grill. Hot or cold, rain, snow, or shine, I’ll be out on my deck grilling up something off my list of ten grill recipes for the Super Bowl. Here’s to a great game and great food!

1. Beef Shish Kebab

Kebabs are super easy to make and perfect when you have a get-together, such as a Super Bowl party. This recipe for beef shish kebabs include a delicious marinade certain to tame even the heartiest of appetites.

2. Grilled Hummus Sandwich

Sure, you can cook this quickly on the stove-top, but it’s more fun on a grill. These grilled hummus sandwiches can be made in batches and cut and layered on a large serving tray. These should be served immediately, but once they hit the table, you won’t have to worry about them hanging around long.

3. Grilled Mushrooms

These look great on a table of mixed foods, and they taste even better. Brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with garlic salt, these grilled mushrooms fit right in with the best of your dishes.

4. Kofta

Kofta is favorite of mine, not only because it’s easy to make, but it can be made in a pinch. Ground beef, onions, parsley, and pepper is all it takes to make a great tasting dish that can be served alone, on a skewer, or in a hot dog bun (which is a nice touch on game day).

5. Chelo Kebab

A chelo kebab, made using either ground beef or lamb, is perfect if you don’t have a gas grill. I actually prefer to cook mine over a charcoal grill. You’ll find you get better flavor that way. These cook quickly, about 4-6 minutes on each side, and can be made right before you’re ready to serve your guests.

6. Grilled Chicken Breast

Sure, burgers might be a go-to when it comes to a game day menu, but chicken is definitely worthy of being considered. This recipe includes a marinade that I assure will keep your guests from asking where the burgers are.

7. Grilled Lamb Chops

Lamb chops can be prepared several ways, but I prefer to grill them. A nice marinade in this recipe will ensure your chops will turn out tender and juicy no matter how you cook them.

8. Grilled Vegetables

You might not think of vegetables on game day, except for ones you can eat with dip, but these grilled vegetables will add something unique to your spread. While you may have to improvise a little based on what vegetables are in season, you should have no problem grilling up a side dish that goes perfect with just about anything.

9. Spicy Lamb Kebab

This kebab differs from the others in that it has some “kick.” There are some great spices in here that you can alter a little depending on how much spice you want. These are definitely a great way to set the mood for game day.

10. Grilled Prawns with Dipping Sauce

If you have some extra time to prepare for your game day meal, then consider including these grilled prawns. You’ll need a few hours to let the prawns marinade, but once they’re done they’ll cook in a few minutes. Don’t forget to prepare the dipping sauce - your guests will definitely thank you.
