Don’t get us wrong; when it comes to cooking on the grill, sausages always reign supreme. They’re the star of the show. The thing that everyone looks forward to the most – especially if you’ve treated yourself to some of our delicious award-winning varieties, here at Supreme Sausages!
But, of course, no summer BBQ is complete without some tasty BBQ side dishes.
So, this year, why not push the boat out and try something new? Accompany your BBQ sausages with a few of our scrumptious sides and transform your 2021 cookout into a true summer feast.
8 BBQ side dishes to accompany your BBQ sausages
1. Brioche rolls
This is the ultimate classic. Pop some of our traditional Chalgrove English Pork Sausage into a soft bread roll, add a dollop of ketchup and mustard, and create a mouth-watering BBQ hot dog. To up the tastiness, we recommend choosing a buttery brioche and lightly toasting it on the grill.
2. Classic coleslaw
Sweet, tangy, creamy, crunchy – coleslaw offers a zesty contrast to your smoky BBQ sausages.
But forget about the shop-bought versions. In our opinion, it’s all about the homemade slaw. For a tongue-tingling twist, why not add some apple? This fruity version would pair perfectly with our Pork, Apple and Cider Sausages. Or turn up the heat with some jerk seasoning or chilli peppers.
3. Corn on the cob
This is another classic BBQ accompaniment. To keep things conventional, wrap the cob in foil and barbeque until it’s tender and charred. Then just add butter. It’s simple yet delicious! Or to upgrade your sweetcorn, either brush on some garlic chilli sauce or sprinkle with a little Parmesan.
4. Baked potato wedges
Not just a winter carb. Potato is a fantastic summer BBQ sausage side dish in any guise – whether that be chips, jacket potatoes, potato salad… but we’re a particularly big fan of crispy baked wedges.
Season with rosemary and garlic and pair them with our Cumberland Pork Sausages. Or to make things a little healthier, why not swap your Maris Pipers for sweet potato or purple varieties?
5. Grilled vegetables
You’ve already fired up the grill. So, why not make the most of it and BBQ some veggies too? Onions, peppers, courgettes and mushrooms all work really well. Not only do they complement the flavours of your BBQ sausage, they also add colour and are a great way to get your 5-a-day into a BBQ feast.
6. Baked beans
Baked beans are a hearty crowd-pleaser – which is why they’re the perfect idea for a BBQ side, guaranteed to go down well with your guests. Keep things classic with a rich tomato-based sauce. Or, to ramp up the flavour, why not opt for smoky BBQ or fiery chilli beans instead?
Either way, they’ll work perfectly with our Pork, Tomato and Black Pepper Sausages.
Ideal for a cookout on a warm summer’s day – and a great way to use up any leftovers. Panzanella is a chopped Tuscan salad made from ciabatta bread, red onions and tomatoes. Just toss the ingredients together and drizzle over some vinaigrette for a fresh and colourful barbeque side.
8. Pasta salad
A pure summertime food. Pasta salad is a fantastic BBQ side dish to plate up with your bangers.
Mac ‘n’ cheese salad is a big trend this year. Just combine macaroni, gooey cheddar, mayo, chives, and bacon for an indulgent and irresistible side. It’s not so good for your waistline, but truly yummy. And it’s the perfect complement for our Pork Chilli Sausages (helping to tame the fire!).
Or for a healthier alternative, why not mix wholemeal fusilli with cucumber, peas, cherry tomatoes and your favourite pesto? And for a little crunch, be sure to add some toasted pine nuts.
