It’s backyard barbeque and picnic time! Whether you have a trusty grill, easy-to-use fire pit, or built-in fireplace, plan some meals to enjoy outside! Take a look at four crowd-pleasing barbeque favorites that always get two thumbs up!
The All-American burger is always a popular must-have for outdoor dining. Nothing compares to the taste that a flame adds to this all-time winner. Your grill master of the day can take special orders from your guests, so each burger is cooked perfectly. Then, add cheese, lettuce, pickles, mayo, mustard, and other tasty condiments. Gather around the table and enjoy this sensational star of the show.
Hooray for Hotdogs
One of the easiest foods to cook outside is a hotdog. This buddy in a bun can easily be cooked directly on the grill or over an open fire. Just like the burgers above, add favorite condiments and toppings. Everyone loves a hot diggity hotdog!
Foil Pocket Potatoes
Potatoes and backyard dining go hand in hand. Cover a potato in butter, salt, and pepper, wrap in foil and place it directly on any outdoor grill to bake. Another way is to slice potatoes, onions, green peppers, a pad of butter, season with salt and pepper, and mix well. Wrap in a foil packet and allow them to steam to perfection! Have plenty of toppings handy like creamy ranch dressing, sour cream, and cheese.
Chicken is an outdoor food go-to. Marinate chicken legs, breasts, and legs overnight and then, cook over an outdoor fire. After cooking, dip your chicken pieces in barbeque sauce and serve with favorite sides like pocket potatoes and cold salads.
