Examples of Great Grilled Desserts
Founder and president of MLE, Inc., Mike Loftus oversees and finances all operations at the merchandising and sign solutions company. Outside of MLE, Mike Loftus loves grilling; he grills everything, from breakfast dishes to desserts. When most people think of grilling, they think of grilled steaks or chicken, but there are actually several desserts that can easily be made on the grill. Following are just a few examples of grilled desserts:
- Skillet pie: Though it takes roughly two hours to cook, a grilled skillet pie is great for showcasing some seasonal fruits. The grill creates a golden brown pie crust that is still tender and mixes perfectly with some ice cream or whipped cream.
- Skillet grunt: A classic dessert in the United States, grunt is a combination of dough topping and fruit stew. When made in a skillet, it can easily be cooked on a grill while everyone is enjoying the main course.
- Peach melba: Another well-known dessert, peach melba can easily be adapted to the grill. Grilling the peach halves before topping them with ice cream and puree helps caramelize the fruit while giving it a unique grilled flavor.
- Banana bites: Perfect for kids, grilled banana bites sandwich lightly charred chunks of banana, marshmallow, chocolate, and peanut butter in small rolls. The dessert takes around 10 minutes to make and is a simple way to finish off an outdoor meal.
