Back To School BBQ

Back To School BBQ

Unbelievably, we’re already on the back side of summer, and the kids will be going back to school before you know it! With that comes the chore of packing lunches for the kids. Ughhh!! But with a little planning, you can make that chore just a little easier. Below are a few BBQ lunch ideas that can be put together quickly and easily. Most will taste just fine if eaten cold, but if your child has access to a microwave at school, they will taste great! We at Kona hope they make your transition back into the school routine a little more painless!

BACK TO SCHOOL BBQ

 

1. La Comida! - You can use all your leftovers to make great grilled chicken fajita quesadillas for the kids. Use your leftover grilled chicken, corn, peppers and onions to stuff your quesadillas.

 

Spread some BBQ sauce on it and top with your favorite cheese for a great tasting Mexican treat! Spray each side of your quesadilla with cooking spray and BBQ on your Kona grill mat.

 

The cheese will melt and hold it all together, so it will pack great in the lunch box. Make plenty and freeze for up to two months for a quick lunch!


2. Roll-Ups! – If you have leftover meat, creamy pasta salad and veggies, then a roll-up is quick and easy. Stuff your soft tortilla shell with chopped or shredded BBQ meat, pasta, and veggies. Sprinkle with a little shredded cheese and you’re ready to go!


3. Fritters! – What to do with all the leftover grilled corn on the cob?? Why corn fritters, of course! Grilled corn fritters are what I call good eating! Mix your cut off corn, salt, pepper, flour, cornmeal, and any other spices or herbs you’d like to add and fry in a little oil. MmmMmmm good!


4. Shred Away! – A shredded chicken, pork or beef sandwich will always be the easy way to go when it comes to BBQ school lunches. Just spread the condiment of choice on your bread, along with your shredded meat and a little cheese, and Voila’. The perfect BBQ sandwich!


5. Chinese Anyone? – Use your leftover BBQ pork, chicken, or steak and make fried rice. It is quick and easy to make! The kids get a nutritious meal, and you get to spend very little time preparing lunch!


6. Cluck, Cluck! – If you’ve made extra chicken on the grill, use the leftovers to make a great chicken pot pie. There are some great easy to make recipes online, and nothing says comfort food in the fall like a great chicken (or beef) pot pie!


7. Easy, Peasy! – What could be easier than a simple lunch of sliced, grilled chicken and some leftover potato salad? You can prepare this the night before and make your morning so, so easy!

 

 

There is so much you can do with your leftover BBQ foods when making lunch for the kids! And with great foods like these in their lunches, the kids will be the envy of the lunchroom! So be a little adventurous, and let the kids help. They’ll enjoy their lunchtime BBQ that much more!
