With the summer holidays in full swing it’s the perfect time to teach your little ones some fun recipes, and get them learning more about food.
As well as teaching them vital life skills, cooking and baking is a wonderful way to keep your kids entertained. And who knows, one day they may just surprise you by taking over the cooking duties.
Whether they’re completely new to the kitchen or wanting to try and create something solo, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite child-friendly recipes that will make your little one feel like head chef.
An Easy Quiche
Quick and tasty, a quiche requires no prior kitchen knowledge and gives your little one room to explore the pantry.
You will need;
85 grams of cheddar cheese
248ml double cream
500-gram block of rough ready-roll pastry
Plus any extras your child loves. Such as peas, bacon or even just extra cheese.
Leave your pastry out before baking begins so it is at room temperature.
Roll out your pastry and place it into a pie tin. It should be the thickness of a £1 coin.
Bake the pastry for 30 mins in the oven at 200 degrees.
While the pastry case is baking, combine the quiche ingredients all together in a bowl.
Once the pastry is cooked, leave to cool at room temperature.
Once you’ve combined all the ingredients you would like in your quiche, place the mixture on top of the pastry. Pop it in the oven at 150 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
And voila! A quick and easy quiche that you and your children can enjoy at lunchtime, or on your next summer picnic.
