It’s a well-known fact that a North Pole elf’s staple diet consists mainly of jelly beans, candy canes and hot chocolate. But now that Elf for Christmas is venturing Down Under, we thought we’d share some of our favourite Christmas BBQ recipes, which Elf is sure to be trying this year!
What will you be cooking up for Christmas this year? Let us know in the comments below.
Christmas BBQ turkey
The traditional Christmas roast with a classic Aussie BBQ twist. This barbecued turkey recipe from The Guardian sounds amazing.
Serve it with some char-grilled veggies for the perfect festive feast.
BBQ Hiramasa Kingfish
If you’re after a lighter Christmas dinner, this recipe for barbecue hiramasa kingfish by Neil Perry on the Lifestyle Food website looks fantastic.
BBQ pumpkin, red onion and spinach salad
Pumpkin is a fabulous side to serve with Christmas BBQ dinner – the lovely warm orange colour looks so festive. This recipe from Taste.com for a barbecued pumpkin, red onion and spinach salad would go down a treat with the Christmas BBQ.
Freckle Men Gingerbread
OK, so this one isn’t technically a Christmas BBQ recipe – but you’ve got to have something to nibble on while you’re cooking up all those lovely barbecue treats, right? And these gorgeous little gingerbread men from All Recipes Australia are just perfect for Christmas. You can even get the kids involved in the decorating too. Perfect!
