Serving food to a group of children is a bit trickier compared to cooking for adults. This is because they have a tendency to only eat what they find attractive or what’s familiar to their taste buds. So if you’re planning a children’s party, why not take it out in the yard? Your guests will have a lot of room for games and you can serve these yummy barbecue recipes for kids!
Grilled Baby Ranch Burgers
8 small soft dinner rolls, split
3/4 kilogram ground beef
4 leaves lettuce, halved
8 pieces plum tomatoes
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1 teaspoon olive oil
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
Sliced celery and carrots 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 about 4 to 6 minutes per side or until great grill marks appear and meat is cooked through. Place grilled patties on dinner rolls, spread with ranch dressing top with tomato and lettuce. Serve with sliced 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 couple seconds per 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 chunks chocolate of your choice
4 large marshmallows
To create 1 smore, sandwich 2 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 each side. Allow to cool for a few minutes before unwrapping the foils. It’s important to make sure they’re cool enough for kids to eat. Drizzle with melted chocolate before serving if desired.
