I love fun meals! Often, I find the more fun I make the meals the more fun my family has eating and enjoying them. I recently had the chance to try EAT Barbecue and knew exactly what I wanted to do with this fantastic sauce once I had my first taste. I served my family a mason jar barbecue meal.
To begin my mason jar barbecue meal I shredded up a roasted chicken and then poured EAT Barbecue sauce all over the chicken. I used EAT’s “The Next Big Thing Barbecue Sauce” for this particular recipe.
Once the chicken was dressed with the sauce I took several mason jars and started to layer the various components of a barbecue meal. I began with homemade mashed potatoes, then layered on the barbecue chicken, followed by more mashed potatoes then baked beans. I alternated the flavors and built the layers differently in each mason jar. Each mason jar barbecue meal was topped with two mini kosher dill pickles and served with a fresh made biscuit.
Each bite of the mason jar barbecue meal was delicious and comforting. It was a fun and relaxed dinner offering a small bite of summer (which just so happened to occur during a cold and chilly night here on the East Coast). I took the leftovers with me to work the next day and it traveled perfectly in the mason jar.
I can’t wait to try different variations of the mason jar barbecue meal – just think pulled pork, brisket, or even ribs. The possibilities are endless. The mason jar barbecue meal will definitely be in high rotation in the summer. It’s the perfect grab and go meal and would even be perfect for a picnic.
