I have taken to it like the proverbial duck to water, the dd1 and dd2 are being a nightmare, they love their fresh veg and fruit so that is not a problem, but, so far i have made the nuggets, which, one prefers with cheese and the other prefers without and i have made chicken and apple balls, one wouldn't even try them and the other had a mouthful and i made some pasta tonight with a lovely sauce and i thought it tasted divine but neither of them would eat it. DH is getting despondent already and is ready to go back on the processed foods.
750g minced chicken
175g grated cheddar
1 tbsp mayo to bind
1 clove garlic
salt and pepper
beaten egg and some fine toast breadcrumbs to coat the nuggets
Preheat oven to 180C. Mix all ingredients up to and including salt and pepper together. Form into walnut sized nuggets and roll them in beaten egg and then in toasted breadcrumbs. You can freeze them now if you want to.
Place on greased baking sheet and cook for about 20 minutes (45 if frozen). Voila!
I'll find the next one out and send it to you the next time i speak to you, hope you are ok.
Thanks RTMTMML, i thought i was doing really well, they had cereal and toast for brekkie as they usually do, and then a healthy packed lunch and i make the tea from scratch and i ended up throwing it all. just gets me so angry to see so much waste.
Whenever I give the children new things I just keep going as though they hadn't made a fuss. Remember in Jamie's dinners the kids threw everything away for ages and then eventually ate it because it kept being offered and there were no alternatives.
I made those nuggets today, have enough to last about 6 months! LOL. I couldn't get chicken so used turkey mince. I thought after I could have just bought chicken breasts and minced it up in a blender, couldn't I?
Anyway, they went down very well. I tested one and thought it was very nice and Lottie loved them.
