Sometimes when cooking with children it’s not about what you actually cook its just about the experience..the mess..the textures.
Last week when Izzy asked to cook I was tired and we didn’t have many ingredients to bake cakes or bread so I was a bit stuck.
I scrabbled about in the fridge for ideas and found a roll of readymade puff pastry, a lump of mature cheddar and some tomato relish.
We made cheese and tomato puffs..we also had some pastry leftover so we made some brown sugar strips and a cheeky Nutella puff or two.
Izzy loved cutting out the shapes and sprinkling on the cheese and a dollop of relish ..
Topping with a bit more pastry…
And brushing on some beaten egg..
They looked so good..
Finding a bit of relish.. What a surprise..
And of course munching them all..
Fun to make and easy to eat – perfect toddler food. I was surprised by how much Izzy could do by herself. Lately I’m asking her to do little kitchen tasks like buttering bread and she really enjoys it and its clearly helping her feel more confident when cooking.
