Summer Sandwich Spreads

It’s summer grilling season and the number one item is a burger of some kind.  And by a burger of some kind, I’m opening it up to wide variety of sandwiches that come off the grates.

Ground beef is probably number one but people today are using many other ingredients for that base.  Ground chicken, turkey, lamb and pork to name a few.  But it’s not just ground protein going on the grill.  Boneless chicken breasts and thighs or portabella mushrooms are being used too.

There seems to be no limit on what people are doing for sandwiches with their outdoor kitchens these days.  But that’s only part of it.

It takes more than just a patty and a bun these days to create that ultimate burger in the backyard.  Everyone is coming up with spreads, sauces, chutneys and jams to put on that bun to bring it up a notch.

This week, I have two for you to try.  Tuesday, think about using the “Spicy Burger Sauce” on that sandwich.  Then on Thursday, try the “Pepperoncini Pesto Spread” for something a little different.

I already have around a half dozen other ones on the blog.  Just go to the recipe tabs above and hit on the “Odds ‘N Ends” one.  These are there to make a boring sandwich into something much more exciting to eat.

Check them out, give them a try and help spread the spreads.  Also, please help family and friends by giving them the link to this food blog.  Thanks for your support and encouragement.

By the way, I hit 900 posts on “Cabana Boy Cooks” this week.  That means you have in the neighborhood of 600 recipes to get you going in the kitchen.  Thanks again and “Happy Cooking” until next week.
