Hungry Girl: 4 Easy Food Hacks to Save Your Summer BBQ

Those summer cookouts don’t have to be calorie disasters! I’ve got a few key BBQ tips for you…

Spiralized veggies are perfect for side dishes.
One great thing about spiral-cut veggies is that they don’t even need to be cooked. This makes them a fantastic ingredient swap for chilled noodle dishes! Make a few batches of this cold sesame noodle recipe, or give this 5-ingredient zucchini noodle salad a spin.

Diet-friendly food that doesn’t taste or look like diet food? KEBABS.
Just choose your favorite lean meat and marinate it — the number of bottled marinades with low calorie counts out there is staggering. You can also DIY, like with these asian steak and buffalo chicken recipes. Hot tip: chicken sausage and butternut squash is one of the best kebab combos ever.

Slow cookers aren’t just for winter.
Don’t even think about storing your slow cooker in the closet ’til October. It’s essential for making BBQ-style pulled meats. I’ve got recipes for pulled pork and pulled chicken that you’ll flip over.

Fruit skewers = the perfect summer dessert.
A fruit platter might seem a little boring, but fruit on a stick is fun! Skewer up some strawberries, pineapple chunks, banana coins, apple chunks… even cubed watermelon! It’s refreshing and healthy: Double win.

RECIPE: Bryan Voltaggio’s Bacon-Wrapped Corn on the Cob

Originally posted 05/16/2016 01:07PM

Bryan Voltaggio’s Bacon-Wrapped Corn on the Cob

2-3 lbs. bacon slices
1 bunch basil leaves
2 jalapeño peppers, thinly sliced
8 ears corn, shucked

1. On a piece of parchment paper, place a few slices of bacon (2 to 3 slices, or as many as you prefer) alongside each other, slightly overlapping. Cover with another sheet of parchment paper and pound lightly with a rolling pin to flatten the bacon and press the slices together. Remove the top parchment sheet and sprinkle the bacon with basil leaves and jalapeño slices.

2. Lay 1 ear of corn across the bottom edge of the bacon and roll the corn up. Transfer the corn to a parchment-lined baking sheet, laying it seam-side down. Repeat the process with the remaining ears of corn. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours.

3. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium heat. Grill the corn, starting with the bacon seam-side down. Give the ears a quarter turn every 5 minutes, until the bacon is crisp and caramelized on all sides and the corn is tender, 25 to 30 minutes total.

Serves: 8
Prep time: 20 minutes, plus refrigeration time
Cook time: 30 minutes
