14 Dec 10 DIFFERENT WAYS TO USE MUSSER’S BBQ SAUCE
Musser’s BBQ sauce has long been considered the top sauce for a barbeque restaurant in Wilmington NC. While this flavorful and savory vinegar-based sauce is sure to feel right at home on your favorite chicken, pork or steak dishes, it is also flexible enough to fit perfectly in a wide range of other culinary creations. In fact, here are ten alternative ways you can use Musser’s BBQ sauce other than on your favorite meats.
Bacon-BBQ Grilled Cheese
Just add crispy bacon and a generous spreading of Musser’s BBQ sauce on your favorite grilled cheese sandwich and your taste buds are going to be in for a workout! Smoky, sweet, and tangy sensations combine for the best grilled cheese you’ve ever tried.
BBQ Meatloaf Poppers
Mix up your favorite meatloaf recipe, but instead of popping it into the oven in a loaf pan, separate the meat into a mini muffin pan. Coat the little poppers with some extra BBQ sauce and bake them for 18-20 minutes or until done. They’re the perfect finger food for the BBQ lover!
BBQ Deviled Eggs
For something a little different at this year’s holiday table, try making deviled eggs with a touch of BBQ in the mix. Just add 3 tablespoons of Musser’s BBQ sauce to your favorite deviled eggs recipe for a warm, smoky and slightly spicy flair.
BBQ Crispy Oven Chicken
Take your favorite cuts of chicken, season them and coat them in Musser’s BBQ sauce, then dredge them in crushed cornflakes cereal. Place them in the oven on a baking sheet and let them cook between 12 and 15 minutes or until done. It’s the perfect combination of fried chicken and barbeque chicken!
Grilled Pineapple with BBQ Whipped Cream
Use an electric mixer to beat 1 cup of chilled heavy cream until it starts to thicken, then add one tablespoon of powder sugar and continue to mix. Drizzle in one to two tablespoons of Musser’s BBQ Sauce into the mix and stop mixing once stiff peaks start to form. Now, just grill some pineapple slices and add a dollop of the BBQ cream to the top of each when done.
BBQ Chicken Pizza Pitas
Instead of pizza dough, use personal-sized pitas. Instead of marinara, apply Musser’s BBQ sauce. Instead of pepperoni, top with shredded rotisserie chicken. Apply some scallions, some red onions, and your choice of cheeses and bake at 450 degrees for eight to ten minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Grilled Salmon with a BBQ Glaze
Here’s a sweet and sour BBQ glaze recipe for turning your grilled salmon into something special. Just mix ¾ cup of BBQ sauce, the juices of one orange and one lime, one tablespoon of light brown sugar, and one teaspoon of grated peeled ginger and bring the mixture to a low simmer. Once the mixture starts to thicken, remove it from the heat. Once your salmon is done on the grill, simply drizzle the glaze over the fish and serve.
BBQ Breakfast Biscuit
Whisk together 6 eggs, 1/3 cup of BBQ sauce, and salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into a pan and stir it occasionally until the eggs start to set. Add a cup of shredded Monterey Jack cheese to the eggs and cover until the cheese melts. Peel and slice a fresh avocado and 4 large biscuits. Divide the eggs and avocado slices equally among the biscuits and serve.
BBQ Chive Butter
BBQ chive butter delivers an explosion of flavor in a little package. Just blend ¾ cup of room temperature unsalted butter with ¼ cup BBQ sauce and salt and pepper in a food processor. Scrape mixture into a bowl and stir in 2 tablespoons of finely chopped chives. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to a week. This butter is perfect on everything!
BBQ Bean Bruschetta
Take one can of drained and rinsed pinto beans and mix with it ½ cup of BBQ sauce, 1 tablespoon of tomato paste, 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard, and ¼ cup of water. Cook in a saucepan over medium heat until the beans are warmed through. Slice the baguette into thin slices and broil both sides until light brown and crispy. Add a cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the top of the bread slices and broil until the cheese melts. Remove the bread from the oven and top with the BBQ bean mixture and serve with a garnish of scallions.
