What comes to mind when you think of fall food? Comfort foods, sweet potatoes, apples, warm spices, and all the squash! Many of these seasonal ingredients associated with fall are perfect for the grill! If you’re starting to plan your favourite fall dishes for the cooler days ahead, don’t forget to add your grill to feature your grill’s unique capabilities.

Squash

Squash is the epitome of fall. After all, the pumpkin is the official mascot of Halloween! Millions of these orange, green, white and even blue(ish) squash are grown every year just to get carved up and tossed to the curb on November 1st. But the rest of the squash family makes your menu shine every fall, thanks to their savoury, buttery flavours.

They cook up deliciously on the grill! Lay them flesh side-down on your grids to get a beautiful sear, or use something like the stainless Roaster Basket to keep them contained and easy to maneuver around the grill.

Try these Grilled Acorn Squash stuffed with root vegetables like sweet potatoes, parsnip, and carrots. If you’re still on the low-carb summer diet, these Spaghetti Squash Burrito Bowls are a delicious way to help you maintain your dietary goals!

Apples and Pears

Fall is the peak season for these crisp, sweet and incredibly versatile fruits. Whether baked into pies, grilled for salads, or just eaten fresh with extra sharp cheddar, apples and pears work well in a variety of seasonal dishes.

Try this all-out autumnal menu by starting with a fresh Mixed Green Salad With Grilled Pears and Blue Cheese, followed by a grilled Turkey Breast stuffed with brie, apple butter, sage and prosciutto, and finish with a Traditional Apple Pie baked right in your Broil King Keg!

Grilled fruit is smaller and more delicate, so you will need a precise tool to handle them. The Baron Precision Tongs have a tapered, scalloped tip which gently grips items and provides greater control. They, of course, can hold larger items just as well, but they’re necessary for those dainty foods.

Root Vegetables

In the fall, sweet potatoes, turnips, parsnips, carrots, and rutabagas abound! Root vegetables are widely available, inexpensive, and quite healthy for you as they grow underground and absorb nutrients from the soil. They are also excellent on the grill due to the Maillard Reaction that develops flavour compounds from the natural sweetness of the vegetables.

While root vegetables tend to be side dishes, these supporting characters can make your main dish shine. Try these Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary, Smoked Sweet Potato Wedges, Orange Glazed Carrots with mint, or these Roasted Root Vegetables for your next fall BBQ.
