Patty time! Nothing says grill season like freshly cooked burger patties. Some of these recipes call for a grill pan for indoor cooking, but you can easily make them on the grill. Just set the temp to medium high, and cook with the grill cover down. Owners of the Clean & Hungry cookbook, don't miss the Black Bean Burgers, Falafel Burgers, and Jumbo Burgers!

Vegetarians need not feel left out amid all the meats popping off the grill at summer cookouts… Grilled veggies are amazing and should not be neglected!

Foil Packs

Foil packs are perfect for the grill -- nothing falls through the grate! Plus, it's super easy to create fun combinations. These recipes were originally developed to be baked in the oven, but here's how to cook 'em up on the grill.
