Boars Head Vegetable Side Dishes

Boars Head Vegetable Side Dishes

I love smoked. The smoky flavor of meat especially. For this side dish recipe post I utilized Boars Head SmokeMaster™ Black Forest Ham because a little smokey meat can add something exciting to any vegetable side dish.

My smoke house rules always include pre-smoked proteins. My reasoning for this is because well…it’s more convenient. Picking up a pack of Boar’s Head is a lot simpler than buying a smoker and smoking something myself. Not to mention Boar’s Head does a pretty good job at keeping things delicious and interesting.

Crafted with the finest ingredients and exceptional care, this ham is naturally smoked with imported German beechwood. The result, a ham with a delicious, distinct flavor that is rich and smooth. And pairs perfectly with what I’ve got going on here…

Boars Corn Ingredients

First lets start off with a smokey and sweet grilled corn and vegetable salad. So simple to put together, and grilling the boars head meat before chopping really seems to bring out more of the smokey beechwood flavor.
