The Barbecue Hors d’oeuvres Collection

When slowly smoked barbecue is planned for outdoor celebrations, a delicious combination of foods can be offered to guests without a whole heap of effort. Party Biscuits are the perfect small bite-size that can be prepared ahead & baked just before guests arrive & from the frozen state no less, while a patriotic combination of fresh berries used in the Old-Fashioned Strawberry-Blueberry Jam makes a lovely addition. Classic Bread & Butter Pickles, a selection of cheeses & grilled sausage rounds out the appetizer for a wonderful combination of flavors. Accompany with Classic Gin Rickey Shooters for a fine start to your celebration. Use my guide to determine how far in advance these items can be prepared when entertaining.

How To Prepare An Appetizer Of Barbecue Party Classics

Planning & logistics are the key fundamentals to hosting fabulous southern socials. White plates work to ground items & place the focus on the food. Salt cellars & miniature heirloom spoons are the perfect sized utensil to accompany canning classics such as homemade jam for serving. Scour antique markets if you do not already have your own. Showcasing these specialty pieces at a casual gathering will elevate instantly without feeling stuffy & I’ll show you how to use them time & time again.

Arrange a selection of handcrafted morsels on small plates & scatter them about entertaining spaces to make it effortless for guests to sample. Once these items have been prepared, it’s just a matter of pulling them from the larder or the freezer to assemble something special. Use this primer when barbecue parties are planned or throughout the year for an array of other casual celebrations.

The Entertaining Primer

Party Day

Slice sharp Cheddar or Gouda cheese & arrange on plates or platters for serving. Grill & cut quality sausages to accompany it. 

One Day To Three Weeks Ahead

Prepare the Party Biscuit dough & cut as directed. Place them onto a lightly greased half sheet pan. Freeze 4 hours. Place the frozen pieces of biscuit dough into a zip top freezer bag. Store in the freezer up to 3 weeks. To bake, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the biscuits 1/2-inch apart on a lightly greased half sheet pan. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven & brush with melted butter.

One Day To Six Months Ahead

Prepare the Old-Fashioned Strawberry-Blueberry Jam when berries are at their peak. Once the jam has been processed, store in cool location up to six months. Pair with crackers or biscuits at a moments notice for a quick start to any celebration.

Two Weeks To One Year Ahead

Classic Bread & Butter Pickles need to stand once processed in order to develop the best possible flavor. However, once a batch has been prepared & cured, it’s just a matter of opening a jar. Be certain to integrate them into your repertoire as they can be chopped in the food processor & added to chicken salad or served with cheeseburgers from the grill, too.
