BBQ Dipping Sauces: BBQ Pineapple & Miracle BBQ

When I think of summer I think of finger lickin‘ foods. Sticky, sweet, spicy and saucy are 4 adjectives that come to mind when I think of summer cooking. I haven’t quite uncovered the grill for good ol‘ barbecuing, but to help KC Masterpiece® celebrate 35 years, I put their new limited-edition anniversary sauce to use in a different kind of way. BBQ Dipping Sauces are where it’s at!

If you are looking for something easier and possibly less messy than grilling ribs, then try creating a variety of different dipping sauces for veggies, french fries, chicken strips and much more! That’s what I did for our busy weeknight dinner; between baseball and house showings. I cooked up a batch of sweet potato fries and chicken strips, made a couple of BBQ Dipping Sauces using KC Masterpiece® Kansas City Classic barbecue sauce, and the kids and I were able to truly enjoy a sit-down meal together, even if it was just for 10 minutes.

The new sauce, KC Masterpiece® Kansas City Classic barbecue sauce, is available in “heartland” markets and pays tribute to the original “Blue Ribbon” blend. Mighty tasty is what I have to say! Now for the two sauces I created: BBQ Pineapple & Miracle BBQ. Both are quite easy to make, but I will tell you that the BBQ Pineapple sauce will require a small saucepan. I fell in love with this sauce when paired with sweet potato fries, but I also think it would make for some excellent meatballs!!! The Miracle BBQ sauce is simply barbecue sauce and Miracle Whip. If you were to ask my oldest son, he’d say it’s good on just about anything.

Before I get to the actual recipes, I’d like for you all to comment below with your favorite recipe featuring barbecue sauce.
