You Don't Bring Desert to a Barbecue

Apparently- you don't bring desert to a barbecue. 

Trust me- if you turn up to a 4th of July Barbecue with disposable pie dishes covered in tin foil- you will get told that you don't bring desert to a barbecue. 

This. Is possibly. Not the best. Time. To tell someone this. 

Ya know- with the them just having turned up with dessert and all. 

I mean- at least they haven't brought a melon for once (cause that's what my parents usually and infamously did) (and at least they had a different reason for turning up late). 

But it's okay- this was dessert that went on the barbecue (cause what else do you take to a barbecue? Apart from a melon- and why would you do that cause you only then have to cut it up at the hosts house and then isn't that a pain?) 

And FYI- desert that goes on a barbecue goes down very well. The three trays we bought weren't enough. 

And it was MY plan to take desert to a barbecue- ha ha ha!!!

So I thought I'd recreate those tinfoil pie dishes.

The original dishes were chopped fruit coated in butter, sugar and cinnamon- with a lot of emphasis on canned peaches (that was obviously what we had in).

This time tho- I didn't want to make dessert.

Because you don't bring dessert to a barbecue.

Veggie-dog Barbecued Peach Relish

Makes Enough for 8 Veggie-dogs

1 can of Peaches

1/2 a small Red Onion


2 T Sriracha (or other hot chili sauce)

1 T Soya Sauce/Tamari

1/2 t Dijon Mustard

1 T chopped Jalapenos


Chop the canned peaches into bite sized pieces. 

Whisk together the first 3 marinade ingredients till well combined- then stir in the chopped jalapenos. 

Chop the red onion into a fine dice.

For Barbecue Method: 

Combine the peaches, onion and marinade in a disposable pie dish, cover with tinfoil and place on the barbecue until caramelized slightly and 'piping hot'. 

For Grill/Broiling Method:

Combine the peaches, onion and marinade in a ovenproof dish, and place under the grill/broiler on high for half an hour. 

Best served hot- although delicious cold with leftover sliced veggie dogs the next day.
