Memorial Day Leftovers – Unique Uses for your Favorite Spice Rub

So it’s Memorial Day. Or the week after. As per my advice, you went out and bought yourself a ton of Johnny Tush’s Magical Wonder Rub, or perhaps you mixed up a ton of your own BBQ spice rub to use for your grilling needs on Memorial Day. You’ve used on your burgers and beer can chickens, or ribs, but you still have more spice rub left than you know what to do with.

Well, here are some fun and interesting ideas on what to do with all that leftover spice rub. I used Johnny Tush in the pictures, but feel free to use whatever BBQ rub you happen to have laying around.

Make yourself a Johnny Tush Magical Wonder Breakfast. Simply add a pinch of spice rub to your eggs, potatoes or hash browns. You can also add it to bacon! Simply follow this recipe for  Cosmic Bacon on the Johnny Tush website.

Cure you Memorial Day hangover the following morning with a BBQ Spice Rub Bloody Mary. Simply add a teaspoon of your spice rub to your favorite Bloody Mary mix recipe. Rim a glass with your spice rub. This is easily done, by rubbing a lemon or lime wedge around the rim of the glass and then dipping it into the spice rub laid onto a small plate. Garnish the Bloody Mary with your favorite treats, like celery, olives, or even a spice rubbed shrimp. (Perhaps leftover from Cheesy Grits and Shrimp?)

Add it to popcorn. This really does work with any spice rub. Spice Rub Popcorn really takes the flavor of whatever rub you add. Simply prepare the popcorn with your favorite method and then toss with the rub after you add butter!

Add some of your rub to mixed nuts for a unique BBQ Spice Rub Trail Mix.

There is no longer any excuse for all these spice rubs to pile up in your spice rack. It’s time to get them down and finish them off! Please post below any other unique ways you use your extra spice rub!
