With so many BBQ events being planned now that summer break has arrived, we wanted to feature some of the best foods to serve at a backyard BBQ. Whether you’re hosting a kid-friendly or adult-only event, these are the best options to serve your guests!
Make sure everyone’s hunger is satisfied and they leave with a smile on their face and a full belly using these food ideas to serve at a backyard BBQ this year.
Dogs and Burgers
Of course, we’re featuring hotdogs and burgers. What backyard BBQ isn’t complete without this option!? That is unless you’re vegan or vegetarian! So if you’re a meat-eater, it goes without saying that you’ll need to have an ample supply of hotdogs and burgers to feed your guests.
Don’t forget to have some toppings ready to use, such as ketchup, relish, mustard, sauerkraut, and veggies like lettuce and tomato. Create a toppings “bar” where guests can pick what to put on top of their burgers and dogs.
Get the Supplies
Now, don’t forget to get all of the BBQ cooking supplies ready like your grill spatula, tongs, grill fork, and apron! We love those funny aprons that the grill masters wear during the fun grilling TV shows. You can easily find all of your BBQ supplies for the grill at a local retail shop or online.
You see, having grill supplies and utensils will make life easier. You’ll have fewer dishes from the inside kitchen to deal with and most supplies can be toss away or recyclable items.
Pasta and Leafy Salads
Don’t forget to have your guests whip up some salads to bring along. You’ll want a good selection of fruit salad, pasta salads, coleslaw, and any other options that make your BBQ unique. Having a variety of salads on hand for a BBQ will also help provide food options for those who won’t eat meat.
There are so many pasta salad ideas on Pinterest along with leafy green salads, and coleslaw for the guests to enjoy on this hot summer day BBQ.
We love eggs, and if you love eggs too then you’ll love having some egg recipes ready for guests. Consider egg salad, potato salad with egg, and deviled eggs to start! These are delicious recipe ideas that anyone can enjoy during your backyard BBQ event.
Just be sure to place the egg recipes in a bowl that’s set in a bin that has ice to keep the egg recipes cool during the hot summer day.
These are just some of the best foods to serve at a backyard BBQ that we felt we just had to share with you as you prepare to host summer BBQ events with friends and family this season.
