Welcome to this week’s Kids in the Kitchen where I share what cooking my kids have done and invite you to do the same with the linky at the end of the post. This week the Little Man helped me make Cheese Pasties and we’ll show you how in a little while.
First I’d like to thank last weeks linkers The Beesley Buzz for sharing their Cheese and Onion Pasties (gone wrong) but still ended up looking tasty.
We were also joined by Autism Mumma and her Mad Minion Open Sandwiches, which are really clever. I’ve never made open sandwiches, maybe this is something I should do with my kids.
I’d love for you to join us, so if you’ve been making anything at all with your kids in the kitchen please link up, old posts or new are very welcome and I’ll add you to my Pinterest Board as well mentioning you on Twitter and here on Kids in the Kitchen next week.
Cheese and Potato Pasties.
I would have liked to have made my own puff pastry and will try it with the kids one day soon, but this time we used ready made.
to make 3 pasties (The kids had them for lunch)
250g ready made puff pastry
1 egg for brushing
50g chedder cheese, grated. (Star loves grating cheese for me)
three small potatoes, peeled, chopped and par boiled for 5 mins.
The Little Man rolled out the pastry to about 3cm thick.
We used a very large circle cutter to cut out six circles from the pastry
The Little Man put a little cheese and a few cubes of potato in the middle of 3 of the circles
Then he brushed the edges with the beaten egg
Then we put the other 3 circles on the top and sealed the edges by pressing down with a fork.
The little man brushed the pasties with some more egg and pushed the fork into the middle of each one.
We baked them in the oven at 190C/gas mark 5 for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.
I then put the left over cubes of potatoes into the deep fat fryer and we served the pasties with saute potatoes for lunch.
This made me giggle, I gave the Little Man an egg and a glass and asked him to break the egg in the glass. He took me a little too literally and the broken egg shell ended up in the glass while the egg was all over the counter!
So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked, then share it with us here.

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen where I hope to inspire you to get your kids in the kitchen cooking with you. Each week we have lots of fun and have made lots of food. We have also been inspired by others who link up. This is a real easy linky, just write a blog post about something your kids have cooked and link it up at the bottom of the page. You have until next Monday to join in. If you have an old post then that’s fine too. Come and join us, it’s fun!
First I like to thank those that joined last weeks linky. First up we have the wonderful Beesley Buzz and this week it’s a lovely recipe from J as he shows us how to make some fabulous Sultana Scones. J also had a very good taster day at his new school which you can read about.
Then we have the The Brick Castle showing us how to make baked doughnuts in just 30 minutes. mmmmm doughnuts!
Thank you for joining in, I can’t wait to see what everyone else has been cooking.
This week, we had a teatime dilemma. I was going to make pizza but we were out and got back a bit late to make the dough. (Note to self – make sure you have some ready made bases in the freezer for occasions like this.) So I thought we could make puff pastry pizza which is one of the favourites of the adults in the household. However, the littlies are not so keen on the ingredients I put on it so I asked Boo what she thought we should put on it. She said just cheese and tomato. Their favourite pizza is margherita. I thought that it would make a rather soggy looking puff pasty pizza so suggested making tarts instead. Of course this would mean cutting the pastry into circles and Boo was really up for that. So this is the recipe we came up with together. Only, Boo decided that she wanted to put the smaller rings she’d cut out on the top, making pies rather than tarts.

I think they worked better cooking the pie tops separately. The kids really loved them anyway.
