Topic: Recipe Ideas? HELP!?
June 26, 2019 / By Clark Question:
I babysit a 10 year old boy 4-5 days a week.
He LOVES to cook, but is a very picky eater.
Sometimes we make cookies and things, and we're trying to get him to try some new foods.
I want to try some things that are kinda hands on.
Any recipe idea that are fairly easy/inexpensive to make.
He's pretty good about trying new food if HE gets to make it, and I'm not really sure what kinds of things I should try.

I used to make omelettes when I was a lot younger than 10. Try this recipe (adapt it if need be):
Chicken Pizza Omelette
You will need:
3 medium sized, free range, organic eggs
The meat from one pre-cooked chicken leg (torn into pieces)
1 medium sized tomato (deseeded and chopped)
1 outside slice of semi-stale bread
1oz (25g) of cheddar cheese (roughly grated)
Pinch of dried sage
Salt/freshly ground black pepper
Break the eggs in to a bowl and whisk vigorously. Put the bread flat in the palm of one hand, outside down, and with your other hand, rub backwards and forwards to crumble the inside in to the bowl with the egg. Season with salt and pepper and stir well.
In a small, non-stick frying pan, drizzle a little sunflower oil and bring gently up to a heat. Add the chicken and tomato and fry off for a couple of minutes before distributing it evenly around the pan and carefully adding the egg mix. Put your grill on to heat up to maximum.
When you can see that the omelette is set almost to the top (about 3 to 4 minutes,) transfer the pan to underneath the grill. After a minute or two, the omelette should be fully set and start to rise slightly, due to the yeast in the bread. Sprinkle over the dried sage and the grated cheese and return to the grill until the cheese begins to bubble then serve immediately.

If You Have a Quaker Oats Box then under the lid there may be a recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies if you don't like raisins then you don't have to put them in.
Try making some grilled chicken wraps. Buy the soft tortillia wraps, and use ingredients already in the refrig. Clean and cut some boneless chicken breast in strips. Season to your taste and grill on a George Foreman grill, or spray a non stick pan with EVOO, and pan sear on top of the stove. Through in strips of green, red, yellow, peppers, onion, mushrooms, pimento. Stir fry the vegetables if you don't have a grill. Place the chicken and the vegetables in side the wrap and top if with a nice ranch dressing, or a mixture of sour cream with a dash or two of Louisana hot sauce and wrap it.
It is a nice light meal and all kids love wraps.
Experiment with it. You can use his favorite vegetables. Try bean sprouts and mushrooms, or if you are a vegetarian try the grilled vegetables with alphalfa sprouts and baby spinanch leaves with your favorite topping.
