The smell of the grill fired up in the backyard is a telltale sign of summer. Just because the days are getting shorter and the kids are almost (or, are already, as is the case for most of you) back to school, that doesn’t mean it’s the end of grilling season. Extend grilling season with these simple but delicious ideas!
Grilling Into Fall
When the temperature drops and the dark comes earlier in the evening, don’t forget that you can always grill indoors. We have a large indoor grill pan that we use and it’s perfect for grilling up veggies, burgers, and hot dogs, tricking the mind into thinking it’s still summer and extending that delicious grilling season.
Fall Side Dishes
While you may no longer be able to get fresh ingredients for sides like my Summer Mango Salsa, I think you’ll find that there are many side dishes using traditional fall ingredients that go well with those indoor-grilled hot dogs.
If you read this blog, you already know that I enjoy grilling up Hebrew National All-Beef Hot Dogs. These 100% kosher hot dogs are made with no artificial flavors, colors, fillers, or by-products and they are gluten-free. These premium cuts go well with side dishes that feature single-ingredient stars; in the fall, that means produce such as apples, potatoes, and butternut squash.
To help you extend the grilling season from summer into fall, I’m sharing three of my favorite side dish recipes that I think you’ll enjoy with your indoor grilling feast.
Pan-Roasted Butternut Squash
One of my favorite fall side dishes is super healthy and easy to make: Pan-Roasted Butternut Squash. You’ll love how simple this dish is, and how the sweetness of the roasted squash is brought out through roasting. These little nibbles are dangerously addictive!

Scalloped Potatoes Au Gratin
Fall weather makes me crave comfort food, and potatoes are definitely in the top tier of comfort foods. This Scalloped Potatoes au Gratin is cheesy and packed with flavor thanks to the cream it is baked in. It can also be made with non-dairy substitutes using a 1:1 ratio and will be just as delicious!

Apple Hand Pies
What’s more American than apple pie? How about pairing that apple pie with another classic: a hot dog? These apple hand pies are the perfect size for one person to enjoy after gobbling up a tasty Hebrew National® All-Beef Frank hot dog or two.

These three fall side dishes can help you ease into fall, via your taste buds. What are some of your favorite fall side dishes that you think would go well with grilled main dishes?
