With the promise of some nice weather just around the corner, we’ve been scrambling around to find our best barbeque recipes. Are you even American if you’re not wheeling out the grill as soon as the sun comes out?

But, for us, a barbeque can be so much more than boring burgers and hot dogs. We like to convert our fave meals into barbeque-friendly treats, and of course we’re all about the sides. We want salads, pasta, bread, potatoes — you name it.

Homemade Smash Burgers

I said we’re not about boring burgers, and you’ll see what I mean. Our smash burgers are anything but ordinary. We've got the sauce, the toppings, the cheese. Roll out some meat, smash it into a stackable patty shape and chuck it on the grill. And please, I beg, don’t forget the cheese.

Bangin’ BBQ Beetroot Burgers

Meat doesn't have to be the main event. And these bangin’ BBQ beetroot burgers prove it. Don’t you fret about your macros — you’ll still be sittin’ happy with 21g of plant-powered protein and some very satisfied taste buds.

Mozzarella Stuffed Burgers

To round off the burger section of the menu, we’re going cheesy. Sometimes a slice on top of the patty just isn’t enough. Why not stuff your burgers full of it? It's all about that stringy cheese pull.

Chicken Curry Gyros

Next up, it’s time for an ultimate flavor feast — a fusion of one of the best Greek dishes with an Indian twist. Get marinating, chuck your chicken thighs onto the barbeque and serve up straight into your loaded flatbread. Guaranteed crowd pleaser.

Chimichurri Steak Flatbreads

The excitement doesn’t stop there. We're coming in hot with a taste of South America. Chimichurri is a fresh, uncooked sauce that Argentines go crazy for. It’s the perfect condiment for grilled meat.

Chipotle Chicken Salad

We simply can’t get on board with sad salads. There’s nothing worse than apologetically arranged lettuce leaves and cucumber. We can do better than that.

This salad is coated in an incredible avocado dressing. It's so good it might even steal the limelight from the mozzarella-stuffed burgers. For extra punch, grill your chicken on the barbeque.

Sizzling Skewers 3 Ways

Sriracha king prawns, honey and garlic chicken, and veg and halloumi skewers. There's an option for everyone. They make the perfect addition to any plate, no matter how stacked it already is.

“Green Goddess” Salad

If a plain and simple salad is what you’re after, keep looking. This is far from that. Sure, it’s simple, but it’s also crunchy, crisp, and bursting with flavor.

Take home message

I hope these recipes have inspired you to mix up your barbeque. The weather forecast is looking good for the coming weeks, so there’s no excuse not to be prepared. The barbecue grill’s going to be getting a lot of use.
