6 things you didn’t know that you could grill

Caramel Skillet S’Mores

The only problem with s’mores is that it’s an everyone-for-themselves kind of endeavor. Kick it in a skillet with this crowd-sized formula: Caramel-filled chocolate bars and mini marshmallows get all melty and toasty, all you need is a fresh package of graham crackers to go in for a dip. Get the recipe: Caramel Skillet S’Mores

Grilled Fish and Chips

Forget deep-fried, these crispy little fishies are breaded on top and grilled on the bottom (keeping the BBQ lid closed ensures they cook all the way through). Serve them with grilled potatoes for an especially good time. Get the recipe: Grilled Fish and Chips

Grilled Veggie Pizza

Naan bread makes for an easy and sturdy base. The kids can load up their own individual pie and they only have to wait, like, four minutes for it to be ready to eat. Cowabunga, dude. Get the recipe: Grilled Veggie Pizza

Strawberry Shortcake

This is what’s happening: Juicy strawberries, charred squares of pound cake, toasted marshmallow, chocolate drizzle. Repeat. Get the recipe: Strawberry Shortcake

Grilled Polenta Cakes with Shrimp and Tomatoes

OK, we get it. Polenta-making can be tricky. But guess what, friend: This recipe uses pre-made polenta, so you know this little number will be quick and easy to whip up. Get the recipe: Grilled Polenta Cakes with Shrimp and Tomatoes

Campfire Bananas

This is a banana split, al fresco style. Stuff your bananas with all the melty things, wrap them tightly in foil and throw them on the grill. You can add ice cream, fresh fruit and sprinkles if you want, but they're pretty excellent just like this. Get the recipe: Campfire Bananas
