Last night I cooked burgers on a 'Foreman' grill.

1 lb 90% lean ground beef
1 lb mild Italian sausage
One piece of bread
One egg
Salt and Pepper

Mix ingredients in a bowl, form patties (I made 7 from this), cook to medium or so.

It's based on a recipe I got from a Jamie Oliver book and it works very well on the 'Foreman' grill. I'm not sure I'm sold on this mix of flavors.

I'm making a pizza "from scratch" and baking it outside, on my grill.  Love my crust.  Love my pizza sauce from home-grown tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil & oregano.  I'll pick my own red raspberries for dessert.

What kind of grill do you have?  My Weber kettle grill has many virtues, but cooking pizza is not among them.

We're still working on cherries for dessert.

It's a conventional gas grill. I put the pizza on a sheet till the crust browns, then turn the grill off & slide the pizza on bare grill for an instant, then back on to the sheet and immediately transfer onto a clean brown paper bag.  Cool & cut.

Lol. I've been making my own for so long, it's second-nature. I make my own braided bread sticks on demand as well and bake in a little toaster oven. Brush witb melted buttah and sprinkle with Kosher salt. Incredible with salad from garden with blueberries or strawberries or raspberries - whatever is ripe outside my back door.

Yeah, I grilled a skirt steak.  Daughter has been a vegetarian for about two years now.  I suppose I could cook meat anytime I want, but I need to have something for her to eat.

I don't have a gas grill.  I use hardwood lump charcoal.  I used some apple wood chips this evening.

Buca di Beppo with 12 family members to celebrate my father-in-law's 85th birthday:
Lasagna, Veal parm, two salads, penne with chicken and artichoke hearts, spaghetti and meatballs, and ravioli pomodoro (sp?).  And I STILL made my Weight Watchers points. NYAH! Pant

I don't have a gas grill.  I use hardwood lump charcoal.  I used some apple wood chips this evening.

My hat's off to you. I cooked over an open camp fire for many months while foraging. I don't want to do that anymore.

This is ahead of time, but I'm going to an orchestra picnic tomorrow--in addition to the grilling of various picnic meats (provided by the O-Board), I'm bringing baked beans and pastitsio. :D

The lump charcoal lights real easily.  Give me a grill, lump charcoal and a few sheets of newspaper, and I'm ready to cook in about 15 minutes.

Tonight I did skewers of haddock, mushrooms and pineapple.  Served with Jasmine rice.  The hummus and baba ganoush didn't really fit, but I had to do something with the eggplant I grilled yesterday.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm. Nice. I don't like smoke. It gives away my position.  I learned ourdoor cooking by free-camping and poaching. A hook on line, foraging and hunting slingshot kept us very well fed.

Tonight, the progeny prepared meatballs, gnocchi, sauteed mushrooms and spinach salad. I made a little red sauce with asparagus and serrano peppers.

Life is good.

I certainly hope your free-camping and poaching was on public land and not private, could have been dangerous. Other than that...sounds like a helluva time!
