Grilling Means ... Food on a Stick!

Grilling Means ... Food on a Stick!

One of the best parts about summer eating is that it's laid back and so, so simple. Case in point? Food on a stick! Spear your favourite ingredients, fire them up and pass them around for fast and fun dinners you can eat standing up, and the perfect fare for backyard parties.

With the food cut into pieces, or small whole ingredients like grape tomatoes or shrimp, food on skewers cooks up fast. Thread and prep them before guests arrive and serve them hot, à la minute, once everyone's settled in.

If you have kids, you know how popular food on a stick and cutlery-free eating is. And for adults, no cutlery means one hand's free for a cool, summertime cocktail. Love this kind of casual dining? Check out more ways you can eat with your hands.
