| 9/12/2017 8:00:00 AM


It’s hard to believe it, but summer is drawing to a close once again. Back-to-school sales are in every store, and kids are antsy to start checking much-needed items off their school supply lists. You’re also probably trying to find time to take the family to the pool one last time, or maybe hit the beach for a long weekend before the leaves start turning.

One thing that doesn’t have to end with summer is the joy of eating great meals with your family, especially those cooked on the grill. Eating food off the grill can extend well into autumn. As long as it’s warm enough outside, you can use your grill to make any food you like!

During this back-to-school season, try out some of these quick and easy recipes that are sure to become instant family favorites. You’ll spend less time planning for each meal and more time enjoying the last bit of warm weather summer has to offer.

1. Hot Dogs on a Stick

Anyone who has young kids in the family knows hot dogs can be a lifesaver. You can fry them, boil them, microwave them or even grill them. To add a fun twist, grill your hot dogs with breadstick dough wrapped around them. When they’re skewered, they’ll make for a fun, easy-to-dip dinner with little cleanup.



2. Spicy Chicken Skewers

Hot dogs not your thing? Treat yourself and your family to some spicy skewered chicken. Your taste buds will go crazy for this recipe, and you can cool off the spice with a simple cucumber side salad. Or, just put the cucumber slices on the skewers.
