BBQ Sides

There's something about the smell of a burning charcoal wafting through the warm summer air that really works up an appetite. If you're anything like us, you're out in your backyard every weekend, laughing, eating and enjoying the sunshine with your friends and family.

After a while though, don't the same sides get a little...boring? We invite you to try BBQ'ing the Alexian Way, and see how a little gourmet twist can pack a lot of flavor.

Potato Salad
What is a barbeque without potato salad? Of course, we like to make it our own way - by adding a generous helping of our Sage and Pork Mousse. The creaminess of our Mousse works well with the classic consistency that you know and love, while the pork flavor works in perfect harmony with the potatoes. Instead of yellow mustard, we use dijon mustard, which helps to bring out the complex flavors of the Mousse, which comes perfectly pre-seasoned with our secret blend of spices.

Truffle Mousse Balls
We're not sure what the best part of this recipe is - the truffle, the mousse, the poppable, bite-size shape, or the fact that you don't have to turn on your oven to make them. For years, our Truffle Mousse Balls have inspired rave reviews, yet this three-ingredient recipe takes only minutes to make. Simply roll teaspoon-size balls of our Truffle Mousse in a mixture of Panko breadcrumbs and thyme, then set them in the fridge until you're ready to serve them.

We suggest making a large batch. The decadence of the truffle makes each bite practically melt in your mouth, keeping you coming back to the plate again and again.

Oh, and if you decide to pop a few of them on your burger - we won't tell!

Pasta Salad
In traditional pasta salad style, our take is filling, fresh and a family favorite. Start with your favorite type of pasta (we usually default to penne) and cook until al dente. Once drained, stir in some of our Eggplant and Goat Cheese Terrine for flavor. Drizzle a bit of olive oil, toss in some baby spinach and a couple handfuls of cherry tomatoes, and you're good
