Grilled Apples, Brie & Cranberry Sauce Pitas

Grilling is not just for chicken and hamburgers anymore.  Actually, those are probably the things I grill the least!  Let me show you how delicious this grilled apples, brie and cranberry pita is… but first; let’s talk grills.

We own a charcoal grill that resides in our shed along with two huge bags of charcoals.  I think we keep it for hurricane purposes or something.  I can’t actually recall if we’ve ever used it.

Our second grill is a very loved gas Weber that was a hand-me-down from my parents.  The thing is probably –not kidding– 15 years old.  I’ve replaced the grill irons and planks once already and regardless of what it looks like on the outside… the thing works.

Eric keeps talking about this “outdoor kitchen” he wants to build.  Yes, it would be great… but considering that it’s hot as you-know-what here in Louisiana 8 months out of the year and the mosquitoes are out at dusk (dinner cooking time)… I say we wait on that –specially since I’m the one out there cooking.

Anyways… I love kitchen gadgets.  A few Christmases ago, my mother in law gifted me a panini grill.  Let me tell you that it’s a necessity if you want to make lunch in 10 minutes or pull together delicious dinners in no time… you should get one.

It’s no surprise then, that I grill anything.  Just when I think I have nothing left to make lunch… I come up with something This grilled apples, brie, cranberry sauce pita is so good it will leave you wondering how I came up with it! honestly… I didn’t have anything left in the fridge.  ps: make your own cranberry sauce here.

Check out the video and you’ll see why.

Doesn’t that round belly look cute?  Ahem.  Bon Appetit!
