BBQs are usually fun-filled events for friends and families to get together and have a great time. As a result, you will want to ensure that the food you have on offer reflects this. Below are some scrumptious ideas that will help ensure everyone eats as well as possible.
#1 – Basic Snacks
Having a few easy snacks on hand will ensure that no one goes hungry while waiting for the meat to be ready. Consider items such as plates of crisps and dips, crispy baguette fingers and red pepper dip, bowls of mini salted crackers and pretzels, mini veggie spring rolls with sweet onion dip and small grilled mushrooms.
#2 – Salads
No BBQ is complete without an array of cold salads to choose from, and some popular options here can include a basic tomato, lettuce and cucumber salad, potato salad, pasta and cold cut salad, coleslaw and grated carrot and pineapple salad. A few crispy buttered bread rolls also go down well with salads.
#3 – Meats
Virtually any type of mat can be grilled on the BBQ such as lamb chops, various cuts of steak, pork or lamb rib racks, sausages, burger patties, chicken pieces, pork rashers or even a few whole chickens if you’re feeding a large crowd. Always use a basting sauce on the meats, as this will prevent them drying out while on the grill and it will give them great flavor as well.
#4 – Desserts
By the time everyone has had their fill of snacks, salads and meats; they will not normally need a large dessert. Scoops of ice cream or fruit sorbet with a drizzle of chocolate sauce in cones or bowls will usually be more than sufficient.
