Cook your entire meal on the grill — including the sides. Nancy Fuller’s vegetarian skewers include peppers, onions and pineapple, and get spiced up with a zesty honey-lime vinaigrette.

Pizza meets kebabs on the grill. Kids love to pull the chunks of sausage, bread and tomatoes off the skewers with their hands, dip them in tomato sauce and eat — just like a New York slice, no forks allowed.

Have breakfast for dinner! This hand-held version of a weekend favorite is served with grilled bacon and warm maple syrup for the ultimate sweet and salty treat.
