BBQ Dip With Roasted Vegetables
Are you a football fan? I am and this weekend is a major holiday in my home. Superbowl Sunday. The Denver Broncos vs. the Carolina Panthers. So the plan is to have an assortment of make-ahead dishes so that I can set everything out and not move until the end of the game. Since the commercials are as "must see" as the game...no breaks allowed
I created this dip as a sauce for roast pork sandwiches. I was catering a Scotch tasting party and needed appetizers that were appropriate. I stuffed mini sweet Hawaiian rolls with spinach and pork and drizzled the slightly spicy bbq sauce over the top. They were gobbled up and everyone raved about the sauce so I decided to serve the rest as a dip for roasted vegetables. The result was delicious!
This easy, breezy recipe is made with homemade bbq sauce, but you could substitute a purchased version and stir in a tablespoon of bourbon. Try using as a dip, as a topping for sandwiches or drizzle over steamed vegetables. I think it would be delicious on baked potatoes. Give it a try and tell me how you would use.
