Planning a Mother’s Day meal is no easy feat. Especially if you’re not usually the one that has been doing the planning all year. But this is a special day, and even if you think you need a little help from the mom in your life, you know full well that she has earned a day to rest and relax without having to worry about all that stuff. So, we’re here to give you some Mother’s Day BBQ ideas for a buffet feast that she’ll love and you’ll have fun cooking.
A buffet is a great way to give your guests choices on what they wish to eat. It may mean a little more work for the cook (i.e. you) but the moms will appreciate the extra effort you took to make a special feast.
If you’re going to have more than 10 guests, we recommend serving all three appetizers but if it’s just your immediate family, then choose your favorite 1-2 dishes.
Deviled Eggs are popular at parties because they’re easy to make and delicious. This one takes the traditional recipe elevates it by adding smoky flavor and aroma to the hard-boiled eggs.
Here’s another shrimp appetizer that will melt your mom’s heart. Juicy jumbo shrimp with a tangy and creamy pesto sauce combined with crunchy, grilled bruschetta bread delivers a flavorful dish that is sure to wet appetites.
Now that we’ve teased mom and your guests with some delicious appetizers, now’s the time to knock out their taste buds and their stomachs with this main event buffet.
This classic side pairs well with just about anything. It’s a classic late spring/early summer dish, especially grilled. The smoky flavors of the wood pellets infuse well with the sweet flavor of the corn.
For our greens, a nice side that should please everyone is this bacon wrapped asparagus recipe. The bacon flavor helps enhance the asparagus, making them addictingly delicious. You might be fighting with your guests over this one.
For the last of the sides, go with these hearty double stuffed sweet potatoes. These are delicious and sweet potatoes are full of vitamins and nutrients making this popular with adults and kids alike.
Pork is a great medium for BBQ because of how well the sweet aromas from the hardwood infuse into the meat. This recipe really combines sweet, salt, and char extremely well and we recommend using our New England Apple Hardwood Pellets to really enhance the apple stuffing.
