Instead of the usual sausages on sticks, why not try these Skewered Meatballs which are much easier to prepare than you think.
I love serving finger food for kids and these meatballs are perfect for that.
You can eat them hot or cold and with dips or just as they are.
If you think that lamb will be too strong a flavor for the kids, then you could use minced beef or sausage instead.
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes about 16-20
Equipment: Wooden skewers, bowl, wooden spoon, knife, grill
Note: To prevent the skewers from burning, soak them in water first for 30 minutes before putting them under the grill or BBQ.
To fancy it up a little and add some color, put some vegetables between the meatballs. Try doing some with and some without, that way kids that don't like the vegetables can eat the ones without.
I have found it so hard to find just one cook book dedicated to kids savory party food.Most have lots of extra bits about planning and decorating that I don't necessarily want.
So I have done a bit of searching and come up with the 3 that I consider the best in terms of savory kids party food ideas. Take your pick.
