As spring weather begins to warm into pre-summer temperatures, people are once again reuniting with their beloved BBQs to enjoy the art of grilling! From inspired hot dogs to the perfect burger Traina Foods offers some ideas for taking spring BBQ gatherings to the next level!
Instead of a hot dog topped with plain ketchup or mustard, why not give this American classic a cultural flavor twist? With Traina Foods new Gourmet Sicilian Organic Tomato and Herb Ketchup, grillers can give their dog a taste of Italy! With some chopped tomatoes, shredded mozzarella and basil and served on an Italian hoagie roll, one may never return to a “classic” dog! For a really “hot” hot dog, give Traina Foods’ Gourmet Sriracha Sun Dried Tomato Ketchup a try — with some buffalo sauce, blue cheese crumbles and chopped celery.
Burgers are another spring and summer BBQ staple, but the patty is just the beginning of endless creations! Think of the burger as a blank canvas — and even novice grillers can make masterpieces! Topping the patty with some fresh lettuce and Traina Foods Sun Dried Tomato savory fruitons® are a delicious way to add a healthy dose of antioxidants to a burger.
Spice up those side dishes! Tis the season of potato and pasta salads to accompany the BBQ mainstays. Don’t settle for boring old versions of these staples. Sprinkle some fruitons® All American Blend and nuts into a pasta salad; or add some dried blueberries and cranberries into a “red, white and blue” potato salad perfect for Memorial Day of Independence Day celebrations.
Whether cooking up some steaks, dogs and burgers or focusing on more plant-based outdoor foods (grilled veggie skewers are just as delicious as their meaty counterparts!), shop TrainaFoods.com for inspiring “add ins” to take those BBQ favorites to a whole new level!
