Business Catering Raleigh NC

Hardboiled Eggs

The days of chopping and dicing hardboiled eggs are over. Just whip out your handy box grater and grate them right onto your salad, or straight into a bowl for making egg salad.

Brown Sugar

When it comes to keeping and storing brown sugar one thing is inevitable; one day you’ll come face-to-face with an impenetrable brown sugar boulder. Skip the icepick and leave your steak knife in the drawer. Grab the box grater instead. Believe me when I say it works great!

Cauliflower Rice

Paleo diets are really trendy right now so I decided to add cauliflower rice to the list. It’s a great sneaky vegetable. You add it to everything from mashed potatoes, to risotto, and about any type of soup. Use the medium size holes on your box grater to achieve the right texture.


Whether you need chocolate for baking or chocolate for a dessert garnish, your trusty ole box grater can help you make quick work of those big chunks.
