Recipe: BBQ Your Kids with Love

Published July 11, 2014 7:55 AM by Stephanie Bruno-Dowling
Last week I shared my own personal homemade cheeseburger recipe. It is delicious whether fired up on the grill or cooked in the comfort of your kitchen. This week and throughout the month of July I will be posting kid-friendly recipes that are perfect for summertime and meals on the grill! I know my girls and other children I know often shy away from grilled food mainly because it looks and tastes different then what they are used to. My older daughter loves hot dogs... unless they are charred with black stripes from the outdoor grill. Then, she cries and asks for a "plain hot dog" AKA a boiled hot dog. This happens time and again with other food favorites such as shrimp and corn on the cob, which both my girls love, but only if made "plain" and not barbequed!

This week I am sharing 2 ways to make a deliciously seasoned Corn on the Cob that even the pickiest kid will love!

Honey Sweet Corn

You will need:

  • Corn on the cob (cut in half)
  • Sea salt
  • Softened butter
  • Honey
  • Tin foil wrap

Recipe Steps:

  1. Wash and dry the corn. Make sure the cob is cut in half and therefore easier for small hands to hold.
  2. Lay out a long piece of tin foil wrap and place the pieces of corn on top. Curl up the sides of the foil so that you are cradling the corn inside.
  3. Drizzle about a teaspoon of honey onto each cob.
  4. Spread a slab of softened butter across the top of each cob.
  5. Sprinkle some sea salt on top of your corn.
  6. Wrap up the sides of the foil, as you would a present. Fold the sides together and create a seal to help lock in the flavor when the corn is cooking on the grill.
  7. Place on the grill at medium heat for about 15-20 minutes.
  8. Remove, unwrap and enjoy a deliciously sweet and buttery mix of corn goodness!

Mom's Yummy Corn

You will need:

  • Corn on the cob (cut in half)
  • Sea salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Lime juice
  • Softened butter
  • Tin foil wrap

Recipe Steps:

*Follow the steps above substituting with the seasonings for this recipe.  These seasonings when used together give the corn a subtle savory flavor that is delicious for a summer BBQ!
