5 Easy Family Dinners:
Maple syrup and bacon-infused roast chicken
Roast chicken is a family favorite and takes little preparation. For a unique twist on a classic roast chicken simple cover the top of your chicken with bacon and rosemary before brushing maple syrup onto the bacon, to create a delicious glaze, which your kids will rave about. After all, what child doesn’t love bacon and maple syrup?
Chorizo and cheese loaded French fries
If you’re looking to treat your children, you may be interested in preparing chorizo loaded French fries. In a small fry pan lightly cook sliced chorizo with a few slices of onion. Next, place your French fries on a baking tray and cover your fries with your chorizo and onion, before sprinkling your favorite cheese on top of the chorizo. If you’re looking to sneak a few vegetables into your family’s meal, feel free to add corn or mushrooms to your chorizo mix.
If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to traditional meatballs, you may want to experiment with chicken meatballs, which you can serve on a plastic child-friendly kebab skewer. Simply use minced chicken and your choice of sauce to create each chicken meatball, before frying each meatball in a medium-sized pan which has been pre-coated with oil. To make sure that your meatballs stay intact, whilst they’re being fried, you may want to coat each meatball with flour, before throwing it into your frypan!
Build your own tacos
If you want to involve your kids in your meal preparation, simply fill a series of tiny bowls with a variety of taco ingredients such as grilled chicken, corn, beans, sliced tomatoes, jalapenos and sour cream and let your kids build their own tacos.
If your kids are competitive, you may even want to consider hosting a competition to see which kid can create the most unique taco.
If your kids’ dream of becoming astronauts, it’s well worth preparing spaceman eggs for dinner. Simply use a gingerbread man cutout to cut out an astronaut figure from each piece of bread and place each piece of bread on a medium sized frypan, which has been coated in oil. Next, separate your egg white from your egg yolk and pour the egg white into the body of your spaceman, starting with his feet. Lastly pour the egg yolk into your spaceman’s head, in order to create your spaceman’s helmet. Remember to place the toast man which you cut out earlier next to your child’s piece of bread so that they can dip it into their astronaut, like a spoon.
So if you’ve run out of mealtime inspiration and are looking to put a huge smile on each of your children’s faces, it’s well worth trying out each of the fun meal ideas listed above.
