Did Someone Say BBQ?

School’s out, temperatures are rising, and the kids are definitely in the mood for some summer-y treats to match the nice weather. From pizza to salad to cute little bites, these are some BBQ treats that the kids will love.

I DO Like Green Eggs and Ham, Sam-I-Am!

Green Eggs and Ham Grilled Pizza


It’s time to give pizza a little Dr. Seuss-themed upgrade just in time for summer. Why grill pizza, you may ask? Your barbecue grill can turn up the heat to a higher temperature than your oven can, which means an extra-crispy crust and a beautiful char. The kids can definitely help out with rolling the dough!

Crazy for Coleslaw

Classic Cole Slaw

Jeanie and Lulu's Kitchen

No barbecue is ever complete without a side of cold, crispy, and creamy slaw. This is a fun and easy way to make sure kids get their servings of veggies in, loaded with your classic coleslaw fixings.

Terrific Teriyaki

Buy This Cook That

If you haven’t been including meatballs in some way in your barbecue, you’ve been seriously missing out! Because they're small, they need less time than other meats on your grill. Plus, food is just that much more fun when it’s bite-sized!

An A-maize-ing Salad

Grilled Corn Salad

How to BBQ Right

Every good family barbecue needs a light and tasty side dish that is also simple enough to be pulled off in no time, and this grilled corn salad checks off every box. Assembling this can easily turn into a fun exercise in teamwork, with adults grilling and kids mixing the corn into its creamy, flavourful, final product.

Mind Blowing Bacon Bites

It’s pineapple wrapped in bacon, need we say more? Kids will have a blast rolling up bacon strips around this summer-y fruit, and they’ll absolutely love the extra tang from the barbecue sauce.

Sweet Skewers

End your perfect cookout on a sweet note with this healthy dessert. You can definitely put that leftover pineapple to good use here, and the whole family can skewer fruit together. Lime and honey make the perfect glaze for your fruity kebobs, caramelizing them and balancing out the yummy syrupy yogurt sauce. The kids will be too busy chowing down on these to even think of chasing the ice cream truck.
