Turn Up the Heat on Your Summer Cookout

Fire up the grill and call up the neighbors—it’s BBQ season! We asked our resident grill-master, Chef Normajean, to pass on some of her hottest BBQ tips. Give these a try and take your backyard cooking to a whole new level. 
 
Grilled veggies.
 
Grilling brings out flavors you can’t accomplish any other way, especially in vegetables. For a sure-fire hit, snip a few fresh herbs and stir them into a dollop of Country Crock® to create a compound buttery spread. Then toss it into a foil pack with your favorite veggies and grill for 10-12 minutes or until fork-tender. You’ll have a savory side of vegetable goodness—and ultra-easy cleanup!


Instant marinade.
 
No time to marinate? No worries. Just top your grilled steak or chicken with a spoonful of buttery basil spread (fresh basil mixed into a cup of Country Crock®), throw it on the grill and the succulent results will be the talk of the town. 
 
Sauté a side.
 
Whip up the perfect complement to your burgers and kabobs with a three-ingredient masterpiece. Simply throw a handful of green beans or cubed summer squash in a skillet with a scoop of Country Crock® and some minced garlic and sauté on the stovetop for 10-12 minutes or until fork-tender. Be sure to stir frequently. Simple. Fast. And absolutely delicious!
