MIO Summer Grilling Guide

We’re ready for summer cooking with a selection of recipes using fresh, local ingredients you can find wherever you grocery shop. Though many of us grill year-round, summer is the time when we’re drawn to cooking outside. There’s no need to make the kitchen even hotter with the oven and stove cranked up. Head outside to cook dinner. We even have some side dishes that can be made on the grill.

There’s nothing like a good cheeseburger, and our Pimento Cheese Bacon Burger is the best of both worlds – a juicy grilled burger topped with homemade pimento cheese. Our recipes for grilled meats also include Smoky Pork Chops with Honey-Mustard Glaze, Easy Grilled Barbecued Chicken Thighs, Jerk Chicken, Campfire Sausage Packs and a Grilled Chicken Summer Salad.

Grilled vegetables are best in the summer. We love grilling fresh vegetables and serving with a barbecue-butter sauce. This recipe is so great, you’ll want to make it over and again this summer. Or try Meat Lover’s Baked Beans, a classic side dish for a cookout.

And why not have something fun to drink with dinner? Our Summer Sparkler combines rose wine with raspberry sherbet, pink lemonade and ginger ale. It’s beautiful to look at and even better to drink.

Finally, enjoy the summer nights a little longer with dessert on the patio. Our Red, White and Blueberry Shortcakes are the perfect finish to a meal. You’ll want to remember this recipe for your Fourth of July gatherings. The sweet fruit and whipped cream on shortcakes is perfection.

Enjoy this summer with good food, friends and family using Made in Oklahoma recipes using the best MIO ingredients.
