Summer is approaching, and that means outdoor activities, and especially grilling. Grilling is an American tradition, but unfortunately, the choice of food to be grilled for a picnic is almost always the same fare: hot dogs, hamburgers, and corn. There is no question that those are delicious and satisfying, but there are other choices that are as delectable as they are easy to prepare. No matter what you’ll be grilling, remember to practice food safety.

This summer, try some new recipes that will spice up your family barbecue and expand your capabilities as a BBQ chef…start with trying this popular breakfast on the grill instead of inside on the stove
