We've got lots of delicious, warming Bonfire Night food ideas for you to whip up on the 5th November.
You’ll want to make all of these comforting foods. Bonfire Night (also known as Guy Fawkes Night) falls on the 5th of November every year and is the perfect excuse to whip up some mouth-watering, warming treats the whole family enjoy when huddled around the fire watching fireworks in your garden.
PULLED PORK AND WINTER SLAW IN ROLLS
Make mounds of pulled pork and serve in brioche buns with apple sauce and winter slaw (a dried type of coleslaw)...simply delicious
SWEET POTATO FRIES
If you've never tried sweet potato before then these will get you in the wintery mood and they're very moorish. Treat like a normal potato and cut into chips then cook via fry, oven or air fryer. Try adding a little chilli powder or paprika and finish off with a sticky barbecue sauce...so very yummy!
BAKED POTATOES COOKED ON THE BONFIRE
Start them off in a microwave for around 7-8 minutes each then wrap in foil to finish off on the bonfire or fire up the BBQ (lets be honest - we haven't had many chances this summer so there's no reason why not this Bonfire Night). Top them with a drizzle of olive oil or butter or try adding some sour cream and chives for a slightly healthier option.
BAKED SWEET POTATOES
Using the same idea as the jacket spud (above) - baked sweet potato goes really really well with pulled pork and apple sauce...YUM!
You cannot go wrong with these easy finger foods to munch around the bonfire. You could even use the fire itself to help char the sausage - tasty. Works equally well with hot dog sausages or normal ones. If you're feeling elaborate - use some pulled pork on top and always remember the fried onions...a must!
WARMING BOWLS OF CHILLI
Keeping it simple - you can't go wrong with a chilli.
Serve in mugs to help warm those cold hands and fill hungry tums while you gather around the bonfire
HOMEMADE GARLIC BREAD
There's nothing more wonderful than warm crusty bread and these garlic breads are simple to make.
Take a long baguette - make diagonal cuts down and fill the cuts with homemade garlic butter (a chunk of butter, crushed clove of garlic and some parsley)
Wrap in foil and cook in the oven, BBQ or even on the bonfire
You can even add a bit of cheese to melt onto the baguette towards the end to make these super delicious.
VIBRANT WINTER SLAW
Take red cabbage, carrot and other veggie favourites such as courgette, apple etc and chop up and leave to rest for the mix to slightly pickle.
Perfect as it is but you can add mayonaise or salad dressing to give it some extra zing!
HAVE YOU TRIED A SMORE?
Take any favourite biscuit then create a sandwich with chocolate and melted marshmallows until it oozes out of the sides...great fun!
STEAMING MUGS OF HOT CHOCOLATE
You cannot leave out the hot chocolate on Bonfire night.
Top with squirty whipped cream, chocolate sprinkles and mini marshmallows...come on - it only comes around once a year so why not?
