If you could pick any day of the year where you think the most people are outdoors grilling, what day would that be? The BIGGEST day for BBQ in my mind would have to be the 4th of July. Spending time outside swimming, playing with family, grilling and of course watching fireworks. I don’t know about you, but my family definitely has some tried and true recipes that always make a big splash for family gatherings.
I would say that we often incorporate a new recipe or two for Independence Day. This year I would like to help you kick up your barbecue standards with MIRACLE WHIP. It is definitely a one-of-a-kind sauce that combines sweet and tangy, for a flavor that can’t go missed.
For your upcoming backyard BBQ, we are going to make your burgers stand out by taking the slaw from a side dish to the burger topper. My family and I gave these MIRACLE WHIP Slaw Burgers a try and all I have to say is Mmmmm! I especially love the addition of pineapple, because it just goes swell with MIRACLE WHIP and burgers.
- 2 lb lean ground beef
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 3/4 cup MIRACLE WHIP Dressing
- 1 pkg (14 oz.) cabbage slaw blend
- 1 can (8 oz.) crushed pineapple, (drained)
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
- 2 tsp Sriracha sauce (hot chili sauce)
- 8 hamburger buns
- Preheat grill to on medium heat.
- Mix meat, garlic powder and 1/4 cup dressing just until blended; shape into 8 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Grill 5 to 6 min. on each side or until done (160ºF).
- Combine remaining dressing with all remaining ingredients except buns, to create your slaw.
- Fill buns with burgers and coleslaw.
- Bugs and food go together like doughnuts and a juice cleanse – they just don’t! So serve up your potato salad, slaw and other sides in single serving size jars with lids – a stylish alternative to covering bowls with plastic wrap and, bonus, it keeps the bugs out!
- As you know, kids sure are proud of their mess AND their art. So why not combine the two? Have the kids’ table lined with butcher- block paper for them to showcase their art skills while the grown ups bore them with conversation – and it makes clean up a heck of a lot easier.
- When hosting an outdoor party, things can get heated, in the sun that is. So to keep guests cool and happy have a basket of outdoor must-haves on hand like handheld fans, baseball caps and sunglasses – and don’t forget the sun block!
