Easy Summer BBQ Recipes

One of the best things about Summer is the ability to sit outside, having a BBQ in the sunshine. Are you wanting to try some new recipes this year? Well, we’ve done some research and have picked out a handful of delicious sounding recipes for you to try with your BBQ this year!

Bacon jalapeno corn salad

For any leftovers this could be made into a great lunch for work the next day, maybe add in some chicken or tofu to get extra protein or even some fusilli pasta would be nice too!

Summer punch

It’s key in the warmer summer months to stay hydrated, so we have chosen a cold fruit punch for everyone to enjoy!

It really is as easy as putting all the ingredients together in a large pitcher and serving over ice! The great thing about a fruit punch is that they are easy to make, don’t take much time and the ingredients can often be substituted for something else if there’s any allergies or dislikes.

Here’s a fruit punch recipe that we thought sounded tasty: https://onesweetappetite.com/fruit-punch-recipe-non-alcoholic/

Spiced halloumi and watermelon skewers

Skewers are a highly popular BBQ option, they’re versatile and there’s so many different combinations to try! If you’re down for trying new things, have you ever tried barbecued watermelon? These halloumi and watermelon skewers look good, but will they become a staple on your BBQ?

If coriander, sumac, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper aren’t your favourite flavours, you could try experimenting with a variety of different flavour options!

S’mores Rice Krispy treat

Living in the UK has left many of us wondering what a S’more tastes like. A S’more is a sweet snack consisting of chocolate and a toasted marshmallow sandwiched between two crackers. If you’ve ever toasted a marshmallow, you’ll know how messy they can get so here’s the least messy, UK version of an American S’more.

Again, Rice Krispy treats can be very versatile, and the recipe can be easily adapted to suit different wants and needs. A great after dinner treat!
