1. Go Green:
Take a healthy twist on the traditional beef burger. The meaty texture of Portobello mushrooms make an awesome beef substitute. Another perk - unlike some veggie burgers, these patties won’t crumble on the grill. To add some kick for an even hotter flavor, marinate them in soy or Worcestershire sauce. Meat and veggie lovers alike won’t be able to get enough.
2. Fire-Up the Fruit:
Don’t close your BBQ for business right after the last burger is served. Grilling fruit caramelizes natural sugars, upgrading your fruit salad to a delicious dessert. Peaches, pineapples, and mangos are just a few combinations you can toss together with ice-cream for the ultimate finale to your backyard bash.
3. Pump-Up Your Baked Beans:
Nothing adds a better kick to a summer staple than baked beans (and a cold beer, but we digress). Rather than heating up a can, create an awesome and easy chilled barbeque bean salad. Throw together pinto beans, bell peppers, corn, diced tomatoes, onion and barbeque sauce for a twist on a backyard favorite. Heat-up the grill. It’s time to chow-down.
