Kidzworld Kitchen: Memorial Day BBQ

If you’re planning to spend some time with family or friends over this Memorial Day long weekend use these recipes to grill some tasty backyard BBQ eats!

A good sloppy chili cheese dog is just about as delish as it gets. But when you barbecue the dogs on the grill and cover it with your own homemade chili it’s gonna be the best you’ve ever tasted! With some homemade dill potato salad on the side you’ve got a backyard picnic that will make this long weekend super memorable!

Potato Salad

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium - large russet potatoes
  • 2 c. mayo
  • 6 baby dill pickles chopped
  • 5 hardboiled eggs chopped
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp mustard powder

Instructions:

  1. Peel and dice your potatoes into bite sized chunks
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Drop in potatoes and cook until tender (about 15-20 mins) (Hint! Use a fork to test the potatoes. If it slides in easily, they are done)

  4. Add potatoes while they are slightly warm (Hint! Adding the potatoes warm allows them to absorb more flavor)
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste

Remember, be creative, have fun and above all, safety first! As always talk to the adult in charge before you get your chef on and never use an outdoor grill or BBQ without an adult present. Have a happy and safe long weekend!

You never really know how they feel or why they act the way they do. I am totally with Kirsten and just like her there is no one that I particularly hate or anything and f they do something that you hate there may be a reason behind it and we can't judge them on that :3
