Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Use Your Barbecue
For a restaurant touch, add grill marks to your grilled meat, poultry, fish, vegetables and even fruit. Just place the food diagonally across the hot oiled barbecue grates and grill until meat is done or fruit and vegetables are crisp-tender. For a special touch, rotate the food a quarter turn halfway through the cooking time on each side to create criss-crossed grill marks.
Substitute a red pepper for the yellow pepper and/or cherry tomatoes for the grape tomatoes.
