It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

I've seen pics and post of people grilling romaine lettuce on their eggs--someone please enlighten me?!?!

Why do you grill it? Do you add salad dressing afterwards? Is it like a hot spinach bacon salad?

Am I missing something here? Please let me know.




  • Slice lettuce head in half lengthwise, brush or pour a little salad dressing on, both Italian and Caesar work well. Then onto the grill while whatever meat just came off is resting. Just cook for 3 or 4 minutes.

    Kinda like warm spinach salad.

    You are missing a very eggcelent salad.

    Salad, Romaine, Grilled

    A perfect appetizer for anything off the Big Green Egg.

    2 Romaine Hearts
    Olive oil
    Parmesian Cheese
    Salt & Pepper

    ********Preparation Directions*********
    1 Cut the Romaine Hearts down the middle. Pull off any loose external leaves. You want a small tight bunch. Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with fresh parmesian cheese. Push some cheese into the folds of the leaves. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and whatever spices you like. Put into the fridge to keep these nice and cold. Take out at the last minute.
    ********Cooking Directions********
    1 After grilling your meat, steak, etc., crank up the heat and flames in your Green Egg. Put the Romaine Hearts face up on the grill for 2 minutes, then flip over for a few minutes. It will make your grill a bit messy, so leave the heat up to burn off that cheese.
    2 Serve immediately. I don't add any extra dressing, but a bit of Italian or Remolaude dressing is nice. Enjoy!

  • It's great. You don't cook the lettuce to mush. Just grill it to give it some flavor and warmth. I serve it with a mustard/balsamic dressing:

    Thanks for the responses. Will have to give it a try next time I fire up the egg.
