Toss out the idea of burgers and brats and re-invent barbecue sandwiches with a homemade sauce made from fresh plums and rotisserie chicken or shredded pork. Of course we’re all for keeping things compact and utensil-less, so pile the meat mixture high between two corncakes (that are gluten-free, at that) for a hip spin. Wrapped up in wax paper, these sandwiches are packable and portable. Accompany the fruity barbecue with a creamy potato salad that rounds up the last of the garden-fresh basil, and finish with dense, chocolaty brownies or sweet popcorn brittle. Do this, and even the most tradition-rooted tailgating fans will be happy car-campers. Share this: Pin ItEmailPrint Plum BBQ Sauce Toss this sauce with shredded pork or rotisserie chicken. Gluten-Free Buttermilk Corncakes Stoneground cornmeal is key to these flavorful puffs. A fleck of black pepper gives them the right bite. Roasted Pesto Potato Salad A fresh and light potato salad starring pine nuts and basil. Cocoa Pecan Brownies You can whip these rich brownies up in a snap, using whatever cocoa powder you have in your pantry. Popcorn Brittle Airy popcorn is the special ingredient in this irresistibly sweet and salty candy.
