going to do a bbq for us and friends on wednesday. there will be approx 8 adults maybe 10, and at least 10 children. i am known in my circle of friends for doing fab parties. so food wise am thinking burgers, hot dogs and maple belly pork slices, mini jacket spuds, potato salad, big bowl of salad, coleslaw, going to ask my mum to make a couple of quiches (yum), a big tray of cupcakes, possibly a fruit salad. am i missing anything out?

Bread of some sort?

MrsLeonard Sun 15-Jun-14 13:30:02

there will be rolls for burgers and hotdogs

Any vegetarians coming?

I think as it's a bbq there's not that much grilled stuff. It's sounds lovely but is heading towards buffet territory. We're having a BBQ today and having, BBQ ribs, steak, minted lamb steaks, garlic and chilli prawns, koftes, peri peri poussins, burgers, sausages and mushroom and halloumi wraps.

I love bbqs grin

Fresh peaches and pineapple cut into chunks, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and wrap in foil packets, put on BBQ for fifteen minutes, serve with ice-cream.


Bananas cooked on the BBQ, can be studded with chocolate drops for children, rum/ Malibu for the adults

no veggies. maybe worth doing a tray of chicken drumsticks as well?

I don't like chicken at a bbq, it is either overdone or underdone. I never touch it unless I cook it myself.

We're doing a BBQ today for 4 adults and 4 kids. There will be grilled sardines, huge wagyu steaks (we live in Texas, they are mammoth!), chicken satay with peanut sauce and burgers for the kids. Also jacket potatoes, garlic bread, green salad and tomato salad. Ice cream for after and my friend is bringing a cheesecake. It's hot here so minimum effort.....

I also think it sounds like a buffet rather than a bbq.

the chicken would be cooked in the oven then finished off on the bbq. its more of a party than a strict bbq so am happy with that food.

" i missing anything out?..." My invitation? winkgrin

It sounds like a wonderful menu, and I am sure everyone will be more than happy with that selection!

ha ha grin not sure i can cope with any more people, i only have a little garden so 20 odd will be a squeeze. thank you. i have just submitted the order to asda. i will make a load of cupcakes on wednesday while ds is at school, and possibly a victoria sponge or 6.

Gracious a lot of underwhelming responses here! sounds divine OP, I'll come grin. a good twist on coleslaw is beet, apple and celery (matchsticked) - make a yoghurt dressing (yoghurt, a little mayonnaise, lemon juice, mix to taste), sprinkle with chopped walnuts and the celery leaves.

I'd probably substitute little pavlovas for cupcakes too - easier, and more special.
