Go with Whole Grains

When burgers, hot dogs and chicken sandwiches are on the menu, serve them on Pepperidge Farm® Bakery Classics Hamburger Buns, Hot Dog Rolls and Sandwich Buns that are baked with only quality, premium ingredients. For the added benefit of fiber and whole grains, choose their 100% Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns that have a wholesome hearty flavor and supply a good source of fiber. Try toasting buns and rolls on the coolest grill grates for a few minutes before eating to give them a lightly crisp texture.

Do it Yourself

Be crafty with condiments and make your own to avoid the high amounts of sodium in bottled varieties. Add a hint of sweetness to homemade vinaigrette dressings, bold-tasting marinades and finger-lickin’ grilling sauces with genuine Golden Blossom® Honey. The exclusive secret recipe blends the distinctively different flavors and textures of orange, sage buckwheat and extra white clover honeys to create its signature flavor. Give it a try in our sweet and spicy Honey Cranberry BBQ Sauce that’s ready in just 15 minutes.

Season to Perfection

When shaking on The Spice Hunter® All Natural Herbs, Spices and Seasoning Blends, the possibilities are endless! All of their products are sourced throughout the world from the most ideal growing regions, including new Smoked Paprika that results from smoking and drying sweet peppers. Its rich and intensely smoky flavor transforms everything from homemade barbecue sauce and marinades to grilled chicken, pork, potatoes and vegetables. Its vibrant color can also be used to brighten deviled eggs and rice dishes.

Tantalizing Toppings

Fruit and veggie toppings add flavor, color, texture and a burst of nutrients to grilled foods. Change it up from traditional toppings and try baby spinach, heirloom tomatoes, avocado, grilled pineapple or Mezzetta® Roasted Bell Peppers. These tender and juicy fire-roasted red bell peppers contribute a sweet, yet mild smoky flavor to everything from grilled burgers and chicken to pizza, rice and pasta salads. Burgers taste better with a pickle on top! Layer ’em with classic Vlasic® Kosher Dill Spears and Stackers® and Bread & Butter Stackers and Chips. Or take burgers up a notch with the spicy heat of new Bold & Spicy Salsa Blend and Sweet Heat Stackers®.

Best Dressed

Cool and refreshing salads are the perfect healthy complement to summer grilled meals. Build them with dark leafy greens like kale, baby spinach or arugula and a colorful array of veggies for the biggest nutrition boost. Add the finishing touch to salads with Wish-Bone® Salad Dressings such as Bruschetta Italian, Light Balsamic Basil or Robusto Italian. They dress up pasta and potato salads too. You can also use salad dressing to marinate meats or seafood before grilling or try mixing it into lean ground beef or turkey for moist and juicy burgers.

Crunchy Cravings

Finger foods like vegetable platters, fruit trays and baked and whole grain snacks are always a hit at summer gatherings. Feel good about serving new Frito Lay Sea Salted Multigrain Sun Chips® that are made with no artificial colors, preservatives or flavors—just simple whole-grain ingredients like organic corn, whole wheat, brown rice and whole oat flours. Their wavy, ridged surface is just right for carrying hummus, guacamole, fresh salsa and Greek-yogurt based dips from bowl to mouth. Craving more crunch? Try their Simply® Tostitos® Blue Corn Tortilla Chips and Organic Scoops® or Cheetos® Puffs.
