Well, it looks like I won’t be going to Hawaii this summer, but that doesn’t mean I can’t throw a luau-themed party right in my own backyard. I have been doing some research via the internet and have found lots of great ideas for luau party food and fun!
Hawaiian Ham Skewers
This recipe is not only easy, but also delicious! In other words, this is a perfect dish to serve at your luau party. It can be assembled and “skewered” ahead of time, so all you have to do at the party is slather the barbecue sauce on the skewers and throw them on the grill just long enough to caramelize the sauce and get everything piping hot. The sauce recipe is delicious, and in fact, I used it on some chicken wings I made the other night. Check it out by clicking here.
More Food and Fun
By its very nature, a luau party is a laid-back casual affair with yummy food, drinks and games! There is just something about a group of people in flowery shirts and grass skirts that makes for a lulu of a luau! This All Recipes site has a good selection of recipes for drinks like a Blue Hawaiian, main dishes such as Kalua Pig, the delicious Chef John’s Classic Macaroni Salad, and how about Coconut and Chocolate Pie for dessert?
After that feast, you will probably want to get a little exercise, so check out the suggestions for some lively luau-themed party games. Click here to visit the site.
