Healthy BBQ Recipes for Memorial Day Weekend


Pineapple Bun Burgers


1 lb. ground beef
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
8 pineapple rings
1 large red onion, sliced into rings
4 slices pepper jack
4 pieces romaine
8 slices cooked bacon

Heat grill to medium-high. In a large bowl, combine ground beef and Worcestershire and season with salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties.
Grill patties, pineapple, and red onion until charred, 3 minutes per side. Top burger patties with pepper jack and cover grill to let melt, 1 minute.
Top bottom pineapple buns with lettuce, burger patties, bacon, and grilled onions, then top with pineapple bun.


Steak & Potato Grill Packets with Blue Cheese & Rosemary


6 servings

1 pound sirloin steak, sliced into 1-inch-thick pieces
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1½ teaspoons salt, divided
½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced, divided
5 cups halved baby red potatoes (about 1½ pounds)
5 cups halved and trimmed green beans (about 1 pound)
1 large onion, sliced
3 large sprigs rosemary, snipped in half
6 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese


Preheat grill to medium-high. Cut six 14-inch lengths of heavy-duty foil. Coat 1 side of each piece of foil with cooking spray. Combine steak with 1 tablespoon oil, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper and half the garlic in a small bowl; stir to coat. Stir together potatoes, green beans, onion, the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, 1 teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper and the remaining garlic in a large bowl. Evenly divide the potato mixture among the foil sheets (place on the side coated with cooking spray), then top each with a portion of the steak and a sprig of rosemary. Gather together the long ends of each foil piece, then fold up its open sides to form a packet. Place the packets on the grill. Cook for 10 minutes, then flip and cook until the potatoes are tender and lightly charred, about 5 minutes more. Open each packet (be careful of the steam) and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon blue cheese.

We hope you enjoy these recipes or that they at least give you the inspiration to create your own healthy barbeque recipes for Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy the time with your families and friends!
