We rounded up some team members who would share their favorite recipes for these hot summer days and nights. Bon Appetit!

Grilled Pizza 

Michele Dombach, Director of Development

  • Homemade pizza dough or store bought pizza dough
  • Olive olive
  • Pizza sauce
  • Cheese
  • Toppings

Use Olive Oil on the grill grates and on both sides of your pizza dough. Grill one side of the dough – flip over and add more olive oil to the other side. Add your ingredients – beginning with sauce, but go light on this – then end with cheese. Close the lid of the grill for about 2-3 minutes. And then enjoy!

Shrimp Dip

Dr. Lynn Swisher, VP, Health Services

  • 1 block cream cheese (softened)
  • ½ cup chili sauce 
  • ¼ cup mayo
  • 1 TBSP horseradish 
  • 1 can small shrimp
  • 1 small onion diced

Mix and chill overnight.  You can add more mayo if desired. Garnish with parsley. Serve with crackers or pumpernickel bread sticks, which is the best choice!

Fried Corn

Nicole Michael, Corporate Director, Sales and Marketing

  • 1 dozen ears of sweet corn (removed from the cob)
  • 1 stick of butter (1/2 stick of you want to be a bit more health conscious)
  • 1 egg (can add 2 if preferred)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in a pan on stove top. Add corn, season with salt and pepper and sauté over medium heat until corn is cooked but still crisp.  Add 1 to two well-beaten eggs to the corn and stir until eggs are cooked (will looked scrambled).  This is one of my favorite summer side dishes. I typically serve it with marinated grilled chicken breast and fresh garden tomatoes topped with red onion and balsamic vinegar. Delicious!
