25 August 2017

How many BBQs have you had this summer? With August flying by a little too quick for our liking, we feel it’s time to have one last BBQ, to see the warm weather off in style! There are literally hundreds (seriously, Google it) of BBQ sandwiches out there, meaning that the food at your gathering can be both delicious and practical, so here are 8 of our faves.

Shopping list:

  • 1 pork roast
  • BBQ sauce
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar

You just can’t beat a good pulled pork sandwich, and this recipe is one of the best out there. One of our favourite sandwich fillings, pulled pork, has gained popularity over the last couple of years - and for good reason. Although technically you wouldn’t put pulled pork on the BBQ, it contains BBQ sauce, and can be used as a topping on a beef burger, so that’s good enough for us!

One for the veggies now - although we all know halloumi is a mouth-watering addition to any barbeque sandwich, whether you eat meat or not. When it comes to gourmet sandwich recipes, halloumi is a popular choice, offering a meatless way to add texture and substance to a dish.

One of the most popular sandwich fillings, cajun chicken is a delicious alternative to ordinary chicken, adding a bit of a kick to a common recipe.
