Great Outdoor BBQs

Feb 28, 2008
Holding great outdoor BBQs is not just about the sausages, the burgers or the fish dishes that compliment the grilled food. With some advanced thought and good presentation can certainly go along way to making that all important great outdoor BBQs something to be remember and envied.

When cooking those famous burgers of yours don't forget the all important burger buns, but don't forget the importance of a fresh and somewhat crusty bread will always go down well. The French stick! The French stick always looks superb cut in diagonal slices, wrapped in a fresh cloth placed in the middle of the table in a long dish. Place a cover over the butter dish. We don't want unwanted guest at our great outdoor BBQs such as bugs and flies.

A quick and easy recipe that can be made the day before the great outdoor BBQs is the homemade potato salad. The potato salad can be brought out from the fridge nicely chilled just before the bbq begins. The night before cut some new potatoes into quarters, then mix in some mayonnaise and some chopped chives. If you decide to add freeze dried chives remember these will be stronger in flavor than fresh chives.

A Different Salad

Most salads can look a little boring and a lot of people think of lettuce, cucumber and tomato and very little else. Use some imagination and creativity to create a salad that is more appealing for your guests at the great outdoor BBQs you have.

What about an onion platter? An onion platter is easy to make and certainly doesn't have to be overpowering that it will knock the socks of friends. Ok lets get started; slice a few red onions into thin rings. Next chop up some fresh spring onions like you did with the red onions. Mix both the onions and spring onions together, add some chives and a spoon of olive oil, salt and pepper to season the onion platter. Once this is done leave them to marinate for a few hours before you serve the onion platter. Of course a bowl of beef tomatoes and cherry tomatoes (halved) can be prepared in a similar fashion.

At any great outdoor BBQs the perfect accompaniment using our traditional oven is a plate of jacket potatoes. These can be served anytime during the day but in the evening is the special time. Start by pre-cooking the potatoes in the oven; don't fully cook the potatoes then finish cooking the potatoes on the BBQ. If you do use potatoes at your great outdoor BBQs more than likely you will require less meat. This in turn will help you keep the costs down and keep you within a reasonable budget. A perfect topping to any jacket potato is a serving of butter and add salt and pepper to taste.

At any great outdoor bbqs, providing or adding accompaniments isn't all that difficult. Some thought and preparation before hand goes along way. You will be envied.
