1. Grilled Cheese Skewers

Kids love cheese, and these Grilled Cheese Skewers are a fun twist on the classic grilled cheese sandwich.

Ingredients:

  • 8 slices of bread
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices of mozzarella cheese
  • Butter, for spreading
  • 8 skewers

Instructions:

  1. Start by cutting each slice of bread and cheese into four equal squares.
  2. Then, make mini sandwiches by placing a slice of cheddar and a slice of mozzarella between two pieces of bread.
  3. Next, thread the mini sandwiches onto the skewers. Be sure to push the skewer through the center of each sandwich to hold it together.
  4. Butter each side of the sandwich skewers.
  5. Preheat your grill to medium heat. Place the skewers on the grill and cook until the bread is toasted and the cheese has melted, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve warm.

2. BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

BBQ Chicken Drumsticks are a child-friendly favourite. They’re easy to eat, tasty, and fun!

  3. Place the drumsticks on the grill and cook for about 10 minutes.

  5. Let the drumsticks cool for a few minutes before serving.
