Healthy BBQ Recipes for Memorial Day Weekend
Pineapple Bun Burgers
1 lb. ground beef
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
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.

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
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.
