We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

    luis, Have never done them, but saw on Foodtv.com about a month ago... they took out the seed, splashed on some lemon juice (to retain color), a bit of minced garlic, and put on the grill 4-5 min per ea...note that they did NOT peel the avocado. After cooking, they filled center w/ salsa...but could be anything you want. Good luck...

    luis,[p]They are the bomb. They are on that list of things like grilled fruit or bologna, you know... ready-to-eat before going on the grill ..... hard to goof up.[p]Grilled Avocados[p]Peel, remove the pit, leave in halves or cut to quarters. Brush with a little extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Oil a grill rack, I like the ones called disposable and grill 60 to 90 seconds per side. The balsamic will just caramelize. Serve with lemon wedges or grate some Parmesan or Maytag Blue cheese on them. [p]~thirdeye~

    luis,[p]I put 1/2 avocado on 1/4 tortilla. Oil the whole thing and sprinkle it with a little rub then grill until the tortilla is crispy. Top with salsa or just diced tomato.
