Serving food to a group of kids is a bit trickier compared to cooking for adults. This is because they tend to only eat what they find attractive or what’s familiar for their taste buds. So if you are planning a children’s party, why not take it out in the yard? Your visitors will have plenty of room for games and you can serve these yummy barbecue recipes for kids!
Grilled Baby Ranch Burgers
What you need:
8 small soft dinner rolls, split
3/4 kilogram ground beef
4 leaves lettuce, halved
8 slices plum tomatoes
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1 tsp olive oil
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
Sliced carrots and celery for serving
Using clean hands, form the ground beef into 3-inch patties. Season each with kosher salt and black pepper. Oil the grates and cook patties over medium high heat for approximately 4 to 6 minutes each side or until great grill marks appear and meat is cooked through. Place grilled patties on dinner rolls, spread with ranch dressing top with lettuce and tomato. Serve with chopped carrots and celery.
Watermelon Wedges With Minty Lime Sugar
1 kilogram fresh watermelon wedges
1 lime, zested (zest finely grated)
4 fresh mint leaves, finely shredded
3 1/2 tablespoons golden caster sugar
Lime wedges for serving
To prepare the minty lime sugar, mix together lime zest, shredded mint leaves and 2 1/2 tablespoons golden caster sugar. Set aside. Toss the watermelon wedges in the remaining sugar. Heat watermelon on a grill over medium high heat for only a few seconds each side until grill marks appear, using tongs to flip. Put on a serving platter, sprinkle with minty lime sugar and serve with lime wedges.
Mini Campfire Smores
What you need:
8 Rich Tea Biscuits
8 balls chocolate of your choice
4 large marshmallows
To create 1 smore, sandwich two chunks of chocolate and 1 marshmallow between two biscuits. Wrap each smore with heavy duty aluminium foil and cook on a pre-heated grill over medium high heat for 1 to 2 minutes per side. Allow to cool for a few minutes before unwrapping the foils. It’s important to be sure they are cool enough for kids to eat. Drizzle with melted chocolate before serving if desired.
