Kids in the Kitchen – Cheeseballs and salad

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen where everyone is invited to share their kids activities in the kitchen. Last week no-one joined in so there was not much sharing going on, I do hope you enjoyed my Strawberry Shortcake biscuits though (I know we did!)

I’m going to try something a little different by keeping the same linky open for longer. You can link up as many times as you like and I will still pin your entries on my Kids in the Kitchen Pinterest Board, give you a shout out on Twitter and mention you here in my weekly Kids in the Kitchen. It will just mean that I won’t have the hassle of creating a new linky every week, particularly if no-one joins in. So today’s linky will run until the 29th December. Lets get Christmas cooking with the kids.

Cheeseballs and Salad

This week the Little Man made his own lunch of cheesballs and salad.
We began by making the salad which was basically lettuce leaves and cucumber. I let him cut the cucumber with a not very sharp knife. He had a little trouble at first but I showed him how to use the knife in a sawing motion.
Then we started on the cheeseballs.
I used Camembert Cheese which has a lovely creamy texture when cooked, but the flavour is not too strong.
The Little Man rolled the cheese into balls.
We prepared one dish of beaten egg and one dish of breadcrumbs, we like to use Panko.
Then the Little Man put his cheeseballs one by one, first into the egg, then the panko, then back into the egg and finally in the panko again.
Then I fried them until they were golden.
Then we served the cheeseballs with the salad.

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
