1. Barbecue Deviled Eggs


Put your eggs in a large saucepan and make sure that you only have one layer of them. Don’t put them on top of the other ones. Add water with a depth of 3 inches. Bring the water to a boil and cover the saucepan. Remove the saucepan from the stove and let it stand for approximately 15 minutes. Then drain the water and replace it with cold water and ice. Tap the eggs to break the shells then peel them under running water. Cut the boiled eggs in half and remove the yolks. Mash the egg yolks with mayonnaise until smooth. Add the pork, Dijon mustard, pepper, salt and hot sauce. Mix the ingredients well then spoon the mixture. Place it into the egg whites and garnish with paprika.


2. Root Beer Baked Beans


Cook your bacon in a skillet until they’re crisp. Drain the oil by putting the bacon on paper towels. Set aside about 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat. Afterward, crumble the bacon. Sauté the garlic and onions in the skillet with the bacon fat. Remove the skillet from heat then add the bacon, beans, rootbeer, dry mustard, barbecue sauce and the Tabasco sauce. Stir the ingredients well then put the mixture in a baking dish. Bake for approximately 55 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.


3. Creamy Parmesan Bacon Potatoes


Cook the bacon until they’re crisp. Drain the fat and once again, set it aside. Melt some butter with garlic olive oil in a skillet. Add the potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook the spuds for about 20 minutes until they’re almost crispy. Remove the potatoes from the skillet and keep them warm. For the sauce, get some of the bacon fat from the skillet. Add some whipping cream and simmer until the mixture is reduced. Finally, add some parmesan cheese and continue stirring until the mixture is smooth. Toss the potatoes in the sauce and serve.


4. Mississippi Hush Puppies


Combine self-rising flour, cornmeal mix and sugar in a large bowl. Create a well at the center. Get another bowl and combine the eggs, diced onion, milk, green bell pepper and jalapeno pepper. Once stirred completely, pour these ingredients into the well you’ve created in the other bowl. Continue stirring until everything’s well-blended. Put some oil into a large saucepan and pour some batter in it. Once cooked, drain hush puppies on paper towels and serve with the pig roast.


5. Cast Iron Skillet Corn Bread


Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and put a skillet inside. While waiting, make the batter. Get a large bowl and combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cornmeal, salt and baking soda. Whisk the buttermilk in, the milk and the eggs. Whisk some butter, too. Remove the skillet from the oven and coat it with butter. Pour the batter into the skillet and then put it back into the oven. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
