First thing first, with the increase in so many people becoming Vegans, Vegetarians, Pescatarians (and any other “rians” out there) it's important to check any dietary requirements your guests may have. Once that's out of the way then you're free to shop for whatever you want to put on your menu. Go traditional with burgers and sausages or maybe a lower fat option like chicken or fish. Add some seasoned sides like potatoes or fries and mix together some fresh and colourful salad and you're good to go!
When you'll be hosting your barbecue can determine a lot of factors - what food you will serve, alcohol or no alcohol and how loud you can be without the neighbours hating on you all summer. Barbecues don't just have to be for the evenings. If you've got a busy night planned yet are still feeling the urge for something chargrilled, why not try a breakfast barbecue? Just swap out your burgers for breakfast muffins, fries for scrambled eggs and G&T for your morning coffee. It's a fun way to start the day and means you don't have to spend Tuesday regretting that one drink too many.
