Tip of the Day 6/29/10

BBQ sauce isn’t just for grilling!

BBQ sauce is one of those stockpile items that I have way too much of. During the summer, there always seems to be a BBQ sauce coupon available along with a sale resulting in FREE sauce. We grill a lot in the summer, but not enough to use up my overflowing stockpile. Here are some of the ways I use that extra BBQ sauce.

  • In the slow cooker –Just put some chicken in your slow cooker, cover with a bottle of BBQ sauce, and cook on low for 8 hours. This makes an easy meal.
  • BBQ Chicken Pizza – Use the leftovers from your slow cooker meal to make a tasty pizza. Use BBQ sauce instead of pizza sauce.
  • Meatloaf – BBQ sauce gives meatloaf a great flavor. This is a simple recipe with ingredients that are probably in your pantry.
  • Dip – Use BBQ sauce instead of ketchup for dipping fries or add it to your hot dog. Wherever you would normally use ketchup, try BBQ sauce instead.
  • BBQ Baked Beans – This is a simple recipe from Whole Foods. They recommend using pinto beans, but I will substitute almost any kind of beans I have on hand. (Beans are another item that I tend to overstock my pantry with).
Do you have any favorite recipes that use BBQ sauce?

Thanks, Froogaloo!
