Teens are pretty simple. Your grilling all the right things, other than that I would add a tub of iced soda, juice, and water, potatoe chips, pretzels, popcorn, peanuts in small bags so they can each grab what they want, maybe several bags of mixed candies, gum and maybe a bowl of silly toys from a party place.

Great idea about the silly toys, Amber!
I know high schoolers want to be grown-ups, but give 'em toys and they'll revert back to 6-year olds again!

Also, having grab-bags is a wonderful idea.

Hi Sizz. Congrats on the graduation.

My faves would be potato salad, cold mac salad, cole slaw...but if you're concerned about anything left out w mayo, here are some ideas:

Chili - lots of recipes for crockpot chili on the net. Could serve on burger buns w onions.

Guacamole & chips - or assortment of fave dips (Con Queso, etc. ) - Stuff kids can nibble on

Big simple salad (i.e. lettuce, cherry tomatoes, red onions, mandarin oranges, mushrooms) - set out in a large salad bowl (everyone can help themselves) - set out a few different bottled dressings.

Big punch bowl w lemonade or punch (Don't know if they're old enough for Sangria?) - Get lots of bags of ice to keep cool.

Watermelon - easy & no fuss.

Grilled corn on the cob w butter & paprika.

Baked Onion rings.

Back to cole slaw & potato salad. Might be some recipes for mayo-free dishes.

Used to have a recipe (on my old puter...GRRR) for a brat hot tub. I'll see if I can locate it again, if you're interested.

Here's a recipe I found (haven't tried), if you'd like to do a dish in the crock pot...note - serves only 6-8.

Chili Dogs Crock Pot
1 pound frankfurters
1 large onion, finely chopped,
or 3 tablespoons dried minced onion
2 cans (15 ounces each) chili with beans
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 lb cheddar cheese, cubed or grated
frankfurter rolls

Combine all ingredients except cheese and rolls in Crock-Pot. Stir well. Cover and cook on Low for 5 to 10 hours or on High for 2 to 3 hours. Add cheese just before serving and allow to melt slightly. Serve each frankfurter in a roll and spoon sauce over top. Serves 6 to 8.

Dessert:
Get a few gallons of different flavors of ice cream. (Can be stored in freezer till serving time.)

A few ready-made pies (i.e. apple, cherry), can be kept in fridge till serving time - then top with ice cream. Or - don't know if you've planned on a graduation cake...can get one ready-made as well.

Ooops, forgot the sauerkraut, pickles n relish.

Yippee, Sizz. Eureka, I found it!

Johnsonville Brat Hot Tub Grilling for a crowd can be a challenge. And no self-respecting grillmeister serves brats that have overstayed their welcome on the grill.

One sure-fire way to make certain all your guests get a piping hot, juicy Johnsonville brat is to create a simple bratwurst hot tub. Here's what you'll need:
  • One 11 x 9 x 2 3/8 inch Foil Baking Pan
  • 2 - 3 beers
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • One medium yellow or white onion, sliced
Put the pan right on the grill, careful not to singe your knuckle hair, pour in the beers and add the butter and onions. Then grill your Johnsonville brats to a juicy, golden-brown perfection. Serve immediately to your hungry guests and place any remaining brats into the steaming hot tub. When folks are ready for seconds or thirds or when stragglers show up late, grab a Johnsonville Brat out of the hot tub and enjoy! Welcome to Heaven on a Bun.

Don't forget, these are kids graduating from high school -
sizz may not want to give them a taste for beer, as they're all underaged!
