Fire Up the Grill for Some Sweet Treats!

Summer is basically synonymous with grilling! We love ourselves a good BBQ. And while we love s’mores, it can be fun to switch it up and try something new, too! Since you’ll already have the grill fired up and warm, why not try a new grillable dessert recipe? While it’s not something we traditionally think to do, there are so many delicious desserts that you can make on your grill. We’re sharing our favorites with you today!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 can Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits

Steps

  1. Heat up your grill over its medium setting or prepare charcoals for grilling.
  2. Wash the blueberries and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the sugar and flour and stir well to combine. Transfer the mixture to an 8"-square disposable baking pan.
  3. Place the pan onto the grill on direct heat and close the lid of the grill. Cook for 10 minutes, then stir briefly. Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes, until the blueberries have largely released their juices and the mixture has swelled up.
  4. Top the blueberry mixture with the biscuits in one layer. Close the lid of the grill and cook for 5-10 minutes, until golden brown.
  5. Remove the pan from the grill (carefully! it will be extremely hot). Let cool slightly before serving.

Ingredients

  • 6 glazed yeast doughnuts
  • 6 TBSP unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 pint ice cream
  • Fresh strawberries or raspberries
  • Toppings like fudge sauce, whipped cream, etc (optional)

Instructions

  1. Turn a gas grill to medium heat, lower the cover, and preheat for 5-10 minutes, until hot.
  2. Slice the doughnuts in half, and spread the cut side of each doughnut with a thin layer of butter.
  3. Grill the doughnuts, cut side down first, for about 60 seconds per side. Watch them carefully, especially when the glazed side is down, since the sugar can go from nicely caramelized to burnt in no time. Grill times may vary, so it’s best to watch them throughout the cooking process.
  4. Once toasted on both sides, remove the doughnuts from the grill and let them cool until they’re warm but not hot. Top the warm doughnuts with a scoop of ice cream, fresh berries, and any other toppings you’d like, like fudge sauce or whipped cream. Serve immediately.
