Let’s start with the Grill! This recipe is a favorite. Whether you eat meat or not, you will love grilled Pineapples and Portabella Mushrooms with our Southern flair.

Grandma Maud’s Southern Style Grilled Portabella Mushrooms and Pineapple

4 large fresh portabella mushroom caps (stem removed)

4 Pineapple slices

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup olive oil

4 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce

4 tsp. Grandma Maud’s Premium Southern Seasoning

4 slices of pita bread

Salt and pepper (to taste)


Cover the pineapple slices in brown sugar. Place on hot grill for 2 minutes on each side. Remove and cover. Brush the mushrooms lightly with olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste.  In a small bowl, mix Worcestershire sauce and Grandma Maud’s Southern Seasoning and place to the side.   Grill the bottom side of the mushroom for 3 minutes. Turn over the mushrooms (top side down) and liberally brush sauce/seasoning mix. Grill for another 3 minutes or until tender. While waiting, put a little oil on one side of the Pita Bread and grill. To plate, use a spatula to lift one mushroom and place on top of the grilled side of the bread. Place a pineapple slice on top of the mushroom and serve.


To keep the grill burning, we will move right along with what we call the mature hot-dog, but yet it’s still a hot-dog. Since this is a holiday and holidays are spent with family we have to speak up for the “middle kids” the teenagers. At family gatherings we have the little kids meat and the adult kids meat, but we always forget about the pre-teens who are too old to be a little kid and too young to be an adult. We have solved that problem with our Smokey Dog! It’s a hotdog with an adult twist to it, try it the kids will love it, you will love it!

Grandma Maud’s Smokey Dog

1 Bag of Grandma Maud’s Red Beans and Rice Meal

8-10 Hot Dogs-Boiled or grilled

1 Small Onion-Diced

1 Small Tomato-Diced

1 Cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1 Package of Hot Dog Buns


Prepare Grandma Maud’s Red Beans and Rice Meal per directions on the bag. Serve each hotdog with two tablespoons of Grandma Maud’s Red Beans and Rice Meal. Top with onion, tomato and cheese. Makes 8-10 servings!


We promised three quick and easy recipes right? Well let’s move this show right along with our infamous Turkey Chili. This meal speaks for itself!
