Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Serving Suggestion
Serve with a bagged green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Dressing, such as Italian or Ranch.
Tip 2
Keeping It Safe
Let meat, poultry and seafood cook on the grill for a couple minutes after the last brush with a basting sauce. This prevents bacterial contamination since the basting brush was probably used on the food when it was raw.
Tip 3
Keeping It Safe
When brushing poultry, meat or fish with sauce during grilling, be sure to discard any unused sauce. Serve the grilled food with fresh sauce to ensure that no bacteria from the raw meat contaminates the cooked meat.
