I enjoyed creating some different grilled recipes to make this fall. Don't cover up that grill just yet! Just put on a little jacket and some jeans if you need to and get out there and grill (I am talking to myself with this one too)!
I made grilled apple crisp packets using fall's freshest and most delicious apples, grilled fall-inspired vegetables and a homemade vegetable hash to top my entrée. My assistant and the true chef of this meal can be seen strapped to my chest in the picture above ; ). See, lots of fall foods can be grilled!
Can we just talk about grilled apple crisp for a second? I have to pat myself on the back for this idea because it is so easy and so good! Skip using the oven and have a hot dessert in a much shorter time. Plus, my version is fairly healthy. It has a light grilled flavor and the apples were perfect. Serve it up with some salted caramel ice cream like we did- amazing!

Top Hebrew National® All-Beef Franks with this hash and serve on a bun.

Yum! What an incredible meal. I would definitely make these items again, especially the apple crisp packets- easy and a fairly healthy dessert.
As part of our fall cookout, we included Hebrew National® All-Beef Franks. I love these hot dogs! They are super low in calories so you can eat one (or a couple) guilt-free. They were great with the vegetable hash that I made. I like that you can tell they are a higher quality frank than other brands.
