Changing Menus

Filed under: Cooking with Kids,Recipes — Mom @ 12:41 pm

Last week, I talked about Khaila and how much she wanted to cook.  It seems that wasn’t a passing phase, or if it was, it’s exceeding the standard two year old attention span of 13 minutes.  Because of that, I’ve found myself trying to adapt our weekly menu.  I want her to be able to help me, but there are some things she just can’t.

Last night, she got her first shot at meatloaf.  I’m not sure she enjoyed it as much as using the spoon to stir.  Unlike stirring, this was cold, messy, icky.  Sure, she likes getting messy as much as the next kid, but she’s not a fan of the cold/icky combination.

Every Friday, I’m going to post a kid-friendly meal, in terms of both preparing and eating.

Barbecue Cheeseburger Meatloaf

2lb ground beef (also good if you use 1lb ground turkey and 1lb ground turkey sausage
1 packet onion soup mix
1 egg
1 slice of bread, torn in pieces
worcestershire sauce (to taste)
garlic powder (to taste)
1/2 cup barbecue sauce (split)
1/2 cup shredded cheese

Mix all ingredients by hand.  Save 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce for top.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
