    Going to a BBQ at the weekend where I have to take some food. Apart from the obvious steak and chicken, what else could I take? What low syn sausages and burgers are the best? (I will be shopping at Sainsbury's tomorrow).
    Thank you x

    If u have time u could make some rice or pasta salads. Pork kebabs on skewers are nice too. U could make some tzatziki with 0% fat Greek yoghurt, grated cucumber garlic and mint. Yummy and all free! Even if u take steak or chicken maybe u could marinade them to make them more interesting. I'm making myself hungry lol

    What about making your own syn free burgers? Extra lean mince mixed with grated onion and a splash of soy sauce is how i usually make mine :drool:

    I sometimes add Paprika and Ceyenne pepper in the mix of mine to give them a lift and of course they are Syn Free.

    I use sainsburys be good to yourself extra low fat cumberland sausages less than 3% fat (having them for tea tonight) and I like them = 0.5 each

    Sainsburys be good to yourself chargrilled quaterpounders frozen = 2.5 each

    Sainsburys butcher choice pork sausages less than 50% fat = 2.5 each

    ...no prizes for guessing where I shop! :p

    Also for a BBQ I like to make to kebabs, skewer chuncks of lean meat (chicken/steak/pork... whatever you fancy) between chucks of onion and chunks of peppers and wooohooo... free kebabs! and looks colourful too!

    I find them quite nice! If I'm roasting them like this eve (in the oven at the moment and smelling great!) I wrap them in smoked bacon with all the fat cut off to give them an extra boost of flavour - each one still 0.5 syns

    :eatdrink023:yum!

    I like to make kebabs with chicken and then bits of peppers and mushrooms and bits of onion (red onion is especially yummy!). They take less time to cook than chicken, and it's easier to see when they're done, making them a bit less risky too! Enjoy yourself!
