The holiday season is almost here and that means your barbecue parties are about to start at full swing! So, are you ready to crack open a cold one with the guys?
Your steaks may be a hit, but do you know what can take your barbecue game up a few notches? Take a look at some of our side dishes that can perfectly complement your barbecue items.
Lemon Parmesan roasted asparagus
This delicious side dish makes for a great fall appetizer because of its refreshing and citrusy taste.
The main star of the dish, asparagus, has a unique taste that’s both, bitter and salty. Pair it with sweet and aromatic flavors to mellow down the intensity of the taste for a buttery flavor. For this appetizer, you need asparagus, melted butter, minced garlic, Parmesan cheese, ground black pepper, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and Kosher salt.
Place the asparagus on a baking sheet and pour a mixture of butter, garlic, and cheese. Once roasted, add pepper and lemon juice as a garnish and serve with a steaming plate of grilled ribs!
Steakhouse creamed spinach
Sometimes you want to offset the overwhelming taste of charred meat, and beer is not always the best option. This is where this creamy, delicious, and cool side dish comes in.
Spinach chopped into tiny bits is mixed in a creamy and flavorful sauce. The sauce contains minced garlic, shallots, white pepper, grated nutmeg, heavy cream, hot sauce, cheese, and Kosher salt.
Sautee the shallots in garlic and add it to a mixture of other ingredients while the spinach soaks in water for a healthy punch. Rinse the spinach and add it to the sauce to devour alongside any choice of meat!
Cheddar Jalapeño bread
Barbecue chicken served with a side of spicy, salty, and very cheesy bread? It sounds like a dream come true!
This flavorful bread is a delicious treat to devour with barbecue chicken. The melted cheese perfectly complements the meat and makes you crave another serving.
To make the jalapeno bread, you need melted butter, buttermilk, eggs, bread, grated black pepper, freshly chopped jalapenos, parmesan and cheddar cheese, and heavy cream.
Use a bowl to mix buttermilk, eggs, and butter then add yeast and other spices to make a batter that can be put on bread. Serve hot with some crackers and watch your guests have the barbecue party of a lifetime!
