I’ve barbecued for at least three weekends in the last month because, miracle of miracles, it’s NOT raining.
And I like the taste of bbq’d meats.
No other explanation needed.
I was going to throw sirloin steaks, burgers and a chicken breast on the grill but switched out the last two pork chops in my freezer for the steaks, so I wouldn’t have two beef items. In anticipation of the burgers, I decided to make my own hamburger buns. My recipe makes enough dough for sixteen buns but I made hoagies with half, so I ended up with eight buns and four hoagies. Brioche breads freeze and thaw wonderfully, so that’s why I decided on an enriched rather than a lean bread recipe. It tastes good too.
Hamburgers … naked and dressed – I don’t like raw onions on my burgers but onion rings. Oh mama!!
The rest of the barbecue – Now I just have to figure out what to serve for sides in the week ahead … although I’m thinking of sticking that chicken into one of the hoagies.
