Summer is finally here, so you know what that means: BBQ baby! Whether you are a grilling enthusiast or this is your first time touching tongs, we got you! From simple snacks to big buffets, everyone can find something they like on this amazing list. You’ll flip over these amazing grill dishes!
1. Vegetable Kabobs
Peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, oh my! It’s impossible to go wrong with these bad boys! Whether you’re catering to vegetarians or even picky eaters, this dish is completely changeable to fit all sorts of taste buds. A great option is adding some pineapple to the kabob for an extra burst of flavor!
2. Lemon Pepper Chicken
A simple yet delicious option for any BBQ is this! Lemon Pepper Chicken is a perfect choice for large groups, because who doesn’t love it? Even if this is your first time grilling, you’ll have no problem cooking this dish to perfection. Who knew a little lemon and pepper could make something so delicious!
3. BBQ Ribs
It should be illegal to call it a BBQ if you don’t have ribs! The options for sauces are endless: spicy, sweet, tangy, need I say more? Take into account what kind of ribs you want, too. For more tender meat, opt for spareribs. Want a leaner and meatier dinner? Baby back ribs are the way to go. Although ribs can take a little longer to cook than the other food, I promise it’ll be worth it!
4. Grilled Swineapple Dogs
I know what you’re thinking, but bare with me. All you need is pineapple, hot dogs, bacon, and your favorite spices (you can’t go wrong with paprika and chili powder)! Cut the pineapple into spears, season that baby up, place it next to your hot dog, and roll those bad boys up in bacon! The full recipe is here!
5. Veggie Burger
The best way to get all your veggies in for the day! You won’t have to miss out on any of the delicious flavors with this meal, either. Veggie burgers are always a great option to ensure everyone finds some grub they love, no matter what their diet is. Pro tip: a great side dish for this is sweet potato fries. From black beans to carrots to garlic, nobody will notice that it’s not even meat!
6. Spinach Dip with Toasted Bread
The best snack ever! From easy ingredients to short steps, this decadent dip is a great dish to serve while you wait for the main course. Any kids? There’s no better recipe to have them help with! No need to worry about finding a recipe, check this one out!
7. Shrimp Tacos
Anyone else hungry now? Shrimp tacos are an easy and very delicious option for any backyard grill session. All you need is shrimp, and the rest is up to you! A great filling to compliment the grilled shrimp is some avocado salsa. Whether it's corn or flour tortillas, this dish will be a hit!
8. Potato Skins
Hands down the best carb out there! Whip up some sour cream, cheese, chives and bacon for one of the best side dishes out there! The grill allows you to get the perfect crispy outside, while still enjoying the delicious inside. I can almost taste it!
