Tailgate Grilling:  Bacon Jalapeno Peaches & Giant Grilled Cheese: Joanie Simon

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Peaches

  • When wrapping anything with bacon, be sure to use the standard cut, not the extra thick because it's easier to get it to stay wrapped.
  • Do the bacon wrapping the night before and refrigerate to get it to hold to the peaches even more.
  • When slicing up the jalapenos to go in the peaches, be sure to wear gloves, or don't touch your eyes since the spice can transfer from your fingers.
  • Occasionally turning the peaches while grilling will get a nice even cook for crispy bacon.

Giant Grilled Cheese

  • This recipe is so easy and can literally feed an army, piling up your favorite fillings into a loaf of French or garlic bread.
  • Turkey Bacon Avocado is a family favorite combo in sandwiches, so we layer those up inside two open faced halves of a loaf of bread along with the cheese.  Cheese slices should the touching the bread so that they melt properly and are easy for sandwich assembly.
  • Come to the tailgate with bacon pre-cooked, packaged turkey and fresh avocados for slicing.
  • Keep grill over medium to medium low heat for this recipe so you don't burn your sandwich to a crisp.
  • Only a few minutes on the grill, until your cheese is melted, then assemble the sandwich and slice.
