Memorial Day couldn't have come at a better time - we love those 3 day holiday weekends! Memorial Day Weekend is the traditional start of grilling season. It's time to dig the grill out of the back of the garage, dust it off, and fire it up.
Everyone assumes this'll be a meat fest. And it will - we're definitely going to grill up plenty of burgers, dogs and chicken. But, we're also keeping an eye on dessert because the grill is a great place for fruit or even brownies.
Pictured at the top are Grilled Watermelon Sundaes from Food Network. Grill slices of watermelon for 2-3 minutes per side before adding them to a bowl with ice cream and topping them with whipped cream and homemade syrup.
We also like the Grill-Baked Brownies with Bing Cherry Ice Cream from Williams-Sonoma, below. These brownies are baked in a cast-iron biscuit pan in a covered outdoor grill. Once they're ready, top with a generous scoop of cherry ice cream.
Remember, after all the burgers and dogs are done, clean off the grill and fire up some fruit and brownies for dessert.
