Christmas is coming, so it’s time to prepare your BBQ Hut! We’ve got you covered if you’re looking for ideas on what to serve. This blog post will discuss the top 10 foods for Christmas in your BBQ Hut. We have everything you need to make your Christmas party a success, from appetizers to desserts!
1. Spicy Grilled Sausage:
Spicy grilled sausage is an excellent option for getting your Christmas party off to a tasty start. Place chunks of sausage in a sturdy container, and pour in enough olive oil to cover the meat; then add chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, ground coriander, and sea salt – with as many or as few spices as you’d like. Give it all a stir until the sausage is coated in the mix of oil and spices. Heat up your BBQ Hut’s grill, then lay out the marinated sausages and cook until they’re golden brown on both sides. Increasing the heat by adding more chili to your mixture is perfectly acceptable if desired. The warm aroma of traditional festive spices will fill your hut and set a lovely mood amongst guests while they await part II of their Christmas dinner party adventure!
2. Gourmet Wraps:
Gourmet wraps are an ideal finger food to serve at Christmas time. Choose large tortillas and fill them with fresh ingredients like strips of barbecued chicken, crisp greens, grated cheese, and a spicy mayonnaise or avocado dip. Roll them up tightly and cut them into diagonals – this will give you a great presentation and make them look like mini-tacos. Place your wraps onto a heated BBQ plate, and cook for 2-3 minutes until the tortillas are slightly charred and the cheese has melted – then serve warm with extra dip on the side.
3. Garlic Bread:
Garlic bread is the perfect way to take your Christmas barbeque up a notch! Start with a delicious baguette or ciabatta loaf, lightly drizzled with olive oil and topped off with some fresh garlic, herbs, and spices. Place it onto the BBQ plate until it is golden brown and fragrant, then serve it warm with a generous serving of butter. Not only will your family love eating this amazing garlic bread right off the grill, but they’ll also be impressed by your cooking skills!
4. Grilled Vegetables:
Grilled vegetables are a great choice for a vegetarian Christmas dinner. Choose your favorite combination of peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, and courgettes, brush them lightly with olive oil, and season them generously with salt, pepper, and herbs. Place them on the grill plate until they are cooked through and slightly charred – this will give them a smoky flavor and an appetizing aroma. Serve as part of a festive platter or buffet for your guests to enjoy.
5. BBQ Ribs:
BBQ ribs are an absolute must-have at Christmas time! Marinate spares, baby backs, or short ribs in a tangy sauce made with ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, honey, soy sauce, and garlic. Grill the ribs over medium heat for 20 minutes per side or until they are cooked through and have a nice char. Once they’re ready to eat, serve them with extra barbeque sauce on the side for dipping.
6. Grilled Cheese Sandwiches:
Grilled Cheese sandwiches are a classic comfort food that always hits the spot. Choose your favorite cheese and spread it between two slices of rustic sourdough bread. Heat up some butter in a pan until it’s bubbling, then place the sandwich onto the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side. The cheese should be melted and the bread slightly crispy when ready. Serve with a side of tomato soup for an extra special treat.
7. Grilled Shrimp:
Grilled shrimp make for an excellent Christmas appetizer – they’re quick to prepare, look impressive, and are tasty too! Marinate fresh shrimp in olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice for an hour before cooking. Place on the BBQ plate and cook until the shrimp are pink and lightly charred – be careful not to overcook them or they will become rubbery! Serve with a side of chili lime aioli for an extra kick of flavor.
8. Barbecue Chicken:
Barbecue chicken remains a timeless classic for the festive Christmas season and is sure to be a hit at any gathering. The juicy and succulent pieces of grilled poultry can easily be prepared with just a few simple ingredients. Start by marinating your chicken thighs and/or breasts in olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and your favorite BBQ sauce for added flavor. Grill the chicken for 10-15 minutes per side and watch as it transforms into golden brown barbecue perfection. To complete the dish, simply squeeze some freshly squeezed lime juice over the top before serving. So fire up that grill, lather on your special sauce, and get ready to enjoy an unforgettable Christmas delicacy!
9. Potato Skins:
Potato skins are a fantastic way to utilize the BBQ and create an impressive side dish for your Christmas dinner. Start by baking large potatoes in the oven until they’re cooked through, then cut them in half and scoop out the insides – leaving about half of the potato flesh still intact. Brush the potato skins with olive oil, season them with salt and pepper, then place them on the BBQ until they are crispy and lightly charred. Serve with your favorite toppings, such as sour cream, cheese, and chives for a tasty snack.
For dessert, why not indulge in some delicious s’mores? This classic campfire treat is a fun way to end your BBQ Hut Christmas feast. Toast some marshmallows over the flames until they’re golden brown, then place them between two graham crackers and top with a piece of chocolate. You can even get creative and add other ingredients, such as peanut butter, jam, or caramel. Enjoy your s’mores while they’re still warm and ooey-gooey!
No matter what you’re in the mood for, your BBQ Hut can provide an amazing and tasty array of Christmas foods. From classic favorites like BBQ ribs and grilled cheese sandwiches to creative dishes such as grilled shrimp and potato skins, there are plenty of delicious recipes to choose from this holiday season. So fire up that grill and get ready to enjoy some of the best food for Christmas in your BBQ Hut! Happy Holidays!
